This mint condition Heckelphone was shipped from the factory in 2010 and is the very last one sold in the US. It is a one owner instrument and has been used professionally in the NY Philharmonic among others.
It’s listed in the Reiter book on page 349 as third to last ever made.
Any marks in these photos are dust, and are not defects. We just dusted and oiled the instrument and a few little bits must have landed.
The beautiful maple body is in mint condition with barely any signs of use. It is in the same condition as when it left the factory. For all intents and purposes – new condition.
The full key system is in mint condition with no signs of wear.
3 original bocals are included: Heckel C #0, Heckel C #1 and Heckel C #2, all in silver, and all in excellent condition.
4 Heckelphone reeds and the original swab are included.
The Heckel case and Altieri padded case cover are in excellent condition. The case has slight wear at the touch points.
