This 1982 model C Loree English horn plays easily, with a rich projecting but sensitive tone.
We just cleaned, oiled, adjusted, and play tested this English horn here in our shop and it’s ready to play in every way. This pro-level instrument has not been used extensively but kept in excellent condition throughout its life.
The beautiful grenadilla wood body is in excellent condition with no cracks. Gorgeous hints of the underlying grain can be seen most clearly on the bell. It’s really stunning to see.
The full conservatory, full plateau silver plated keywork system is in clean, shiny, excellent condition. It has the expected amount of wear, but no damage. It has some new pads and excellent condition pads throughout.
This instrument has left hand F, F resonance key, banana key, and both trill keys.
It comes with a silver Loree # 1 bocal and a Lickman/Dallas #7 goldbrass bocal, both in excellent condition with new corks. The Loree double case is in good condition. The exterior has scuffs and marks as would be expected, the front locks are solid but a little fussy, the interior is in excellent condition.
