FS: Frank Holton Eb Helicon sold

Postby opus37 » Thu Oct 27, 2016 7:43 am

With some regret, I need to reduce my collection. I have for sale, a 1921 Frank Holton Eb Helicon. It is silver plate, 95% intact. (There are a few spot on the inside of the bell where the silver is missing.) The bell is 20 inches in diameter. It has one large patch on the outer wrap of the horn near the bottom. It has been plated over in silver so you don't see it and it does not affect the sound. It has been tuned to 440 by Lee Stofer. Valves are in great shape. I played this horn at Tuba Christmas and in parades. It has a great sound. I will send pictures to those with a serious inquiry. I'm asking $1700 (now $1500 plus shipping) (now $1100 plus shipping). If you are looking for a great helicon, here is a rare opportunity to own one. One final drop for spring now $750.

Sale in Progress.

I've lower the asking price to $1500 plus shipping. I think this would be hard to ship, so pick up would be preferred.

I had the pleasure of trying this instrument last week. I have never saw original valves from 1921 that look like they were never used. Very nice horn.

I have been trying to contact you to purchase your horn. It is just what I have been looking for. Please contact me if it is still available. I am more than willing to pay for the shipping to Northern California. My Email is tubapike@ gmail.com and phone number is 707-837-8815, cell 707-478-8448. Please let me know either way about the horn.
Thanks a lot
