A classic 1974 Loree with great depth and color in the tone. It’s been played some, but it’s got lots of upper partials in the tone, and sounds wonderful.

Brian Charles cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play-tested this English horn here in our shop and it’s ready to play. This is a somewhat unique Loree with lots to offer.

The grenadilla wood body had a top joint surface crack long ago which was pinned professionally and seems stable and well done. Someone tried getting a stuck swab out of this instrument, and there are scratches present on the inner bore. It does not appear to make a noticeable difference in intonation, tone, or consistency, but should be considered.

The full conservatory, full plateau silver plated keywork system is clean, shiny, and in excellent condition. It has some new pads and excellent condition pads throughout.

This English horn features the somewhat rare left thumb low B key. The key is located on the obverse of the top joint, below the octave key. To play low B, simply press the key with your left thumb while playing in the usual way. It also has the expected left hand F, F resonance key, banana key, split d, and both trill keys.

The unmarked silver bocal measures as a #1 length and suits the instrument well.

The original Loree hard shell double case and fitted shearling lined cover are in good condition. There is a slight odor of age, as might be expected in a 48 year old case.
