Eventually got around to replacing the broken spring so it is now complete! However I don't have the time to do an overhaul on this one so it's a little project for someone else.
Pads all look good but could do with a clean up, one small ding in the bow (see photos) but otherwise straight as far as I can see. Some tarnishing and missing lacquer.
One cork (palm key), possibly more, needs replacing. Neck cork could do with replacing as it's a little thin.
It does play, with difficulty, but needs some spring adjustment, pad cup tweaking, and regulating.
Orsi's seem to have their admirers so someone could well end up with a sweet playing vintage horn when finished.
Comes in good condition Bundy case, with Rico MP and a ligature. Champagne cork neck stopper.
Priced to sell at £111.00 collected (5 mins J1 M6 or J20 M1) so you can inspect, or can courier for £16.00 insured (1-2 days).
Bank transfer please, if I'm posting it.
5% of sale price to Pete's charity. May be withdrawn without notice if it sells elsewhere.
