Thread: FS: Hirsbrunner Euphonium - bid starts at $3500 - 4 Valve - Silver?

  1. #1

    FS: Hirsbrunner Euphonium - bid starts at $3500 - 4 Valve - Silver?

    The horn is re-listed again, but with a lower starting price this time (updated below).
    The seller clearly does not know much about this horn, and the brand is not named in the title. That could limit traffic he gets, which might help keep price down. He says it is nickel plated, but I'm guessing it is silver plated (I have never seen one of these in bright silver color when nickel was used). Condition looks very good. Apparently a case is included. The price seems quite good for such a rare horn, assuming bidding does not go too high. $4,000 at this point, and there IS a Make Offer button. Shipping is free:

    Seller re-listed with no changes. New URL is above. Here is his description of the horn:

    Hirsbrunner euphonium in excellent condition. Purchased in 1982 and used in performances with the Eastman Wind Ensemble and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Has a few dings. Sound is spectacular.

    Re-listed again. New URL is above. Given the time this has been online, I might suggest making the seller a lower offer and see if that works. A Hirsbrunner is not that easy to find on the market!

    Sorry to hear that. It's a shame to see a Hirsbrunner sitting around for so long.

    Getting more interesting Dave, re-listed yet again at $3,500, still has a make offer as well

    Besson New Standard

    King Cleveland Euphonium

  10. I've also messaged for details and never heard back. The price is getting nice but the lack of communication doesn't inspire much confidence.
