    FS: York Preference 3067 Compensating Euphonium

    I am selling a laquer York Preference 3067 Euphonium for a reduced price of $3,325.

    Many of the forum's members are aware of York's history, but this York is a very similar equivalent to the Besson 967 when that line moved to German manufacturing.

    I am asking $3,500 OBO (plus shipping). With this being a somewhat rare horn, I am basing this on recent pricing for Besson Soverigns in similar condition. I'm open to all offers or suggestions.

    The horn is in fair / good condition. All the slides and valves work as expected. There is some loss of the laquer plating on the cross bar behind the valves, 4th valve and the lead pipe receiver. I'd say that 90 - 95% percent of the plating is present, and defects are only visible from a close distance.

    The horn also has minor scratches and dings (primarily on the bottom bow, top of the 3rd valve tubing / slide). There are also some dents in the leadpipe.

    I have attempted to capture pictures of all meaningful aspects of the horn, and I'm willing to provide more details or answers to prospective buyers.

    Also, since this is my first for sale post on the forum, I agree to the terms and conditions that Dave has set forth.

    Pictures are provided in the Dropbox link below. When attaching thumbnails to the post, I was unable to add photos due to permission issues.

    Welcome to the forum, and thanks for agreeing to the terms!

    The images are a problem because they don't have "normal" file names including an extension (like ___.jpg or ___.png). Because of that they won't work very well even if one downloads them to a Windows computer. If you fix that, you can probably attach them to your original post.

      Thanks for approving the post, Dave.

      Photos are attached. It turns out the files were too large when I was originally making the post.

          If this was their version of the Sovereign, was the Eminence York's version of the Prestige? From what I understand these are fantastic horns, so that price looks like a great deal!

            To my best understanding, York was made by the same Schreiber-Keilwerth company in Markneukirchen that produced the parts for Besson instruments. The parts were made in Germany to be shipped out and assembled in England between 2002 and 2005, after which Besson filed for bankruptcy.

            As far as I know, York instruments were made on the same tooling that was shipped out from the Edgeware London factory for the production of Besson parts and are, apart from finishes, very close copies of English-made Besson instruments. York Preference matches with the Besson Sovereign and the Eminence with the Prestige.
