Description of Item:
An Alexander Model 307 full triple horn, F/Bb/F Alto. Serial number is 9035. This is the "real thing", not a compensator, so you have all the full pipework for all three horns in the one instrument. These triple are particularly excellent on the Bb horn and the F alto, which is why one would buy one of these, really. The Bb is such high quality and so secure in pitching, it makes the alto horn a luxury for security above the stave. The 307 stands in Bb, triggers into F alto on the upper trigger, and F (basso) on the lower trigger. Unlike the 310, this won't alter. I have to say, I had a 310, never altered these settings on it and never felt it was sonically quite as good and rich as my previous 307, hence me buying another 307! I am selling as I am having a total downsize of my pro-level horns, leaving me only with my Paxman Model 40, which does everything I need a horn to do these days, apart from playing itself, of course.This horn has lacquer wear and surface blemishes, see photos to ascertain the extent. This reduces its aesthetic appeal, and lowers the asking price as well, of course. There are no dents etc, the blemishes are surface phenomena. The horn is in gold brass, and has the usual Alexander virtues of total reliability, bomb-proof build quality, and sonic splendour. Nothing sounds like an Alexander except and Alexander. Each side of the horn tunes separately, for total refinement. There are two Amato-type water keys, see photos, on the leadpipe and the third slide of the alto horn. The bell is detachable. There is an adjustable duck's foot and an adjustable little finger hook, making is very comfortable to hold. These are not light instruments, as full triples aren't, of course, and won't suit a child or younger player. They are well balanced, weight-wise, it is an Alexander, after all. It is true that Schmidt and Finke triples are lighter, but their sound is not in the same league as Alexander's, their sound does not carry or have the integral richness and warmth one finds here.
