A very early and rare King Pelletier Model Schmidt Wrap King Brass Double French Horn. Serial numbers: piston 368, horn 186674 (1930’s) Nickel trim, and excellent condition. All original.  Schmidt piston change valve design. Horn shows a few signs of repair in its 70-year life. It was fitted at one time with a Schmidt hook, but the hook is missing. The Original lacquer is missing, I think, over most of the horn, although it may be waxed raw brass. The horn has very clean valves, with very good compression. They may have been re-plated. The third F crook has a high temp silver solder repair (see pix).  It comes with its factory case, an Eb slide, and no mouthpiece. The range is present from pedal D to High C above the staff. Yes, the high Bb is there…the bottom sound is huge and this horn would make a terrific fourth or second horn. The horn would serve any serious player well. It is good looking and has a factory King case in very good condition. The case is pre-faux alligator, in very good condition. The leather-binding strap is still functional! I find the Pelletier Schmidt’s to be one of the more comfortable Schmidt wrap horns to play.
