Amati Kraslice BBb- NEW PHOTOS AND PRICE DROP

I am selling my 1978 Czach Amati Kraslice BBb horn. When I bought it I put about $1500 in repairs and refurbishments into. Replaced all the original corkage and relinked the horn, fixed all of the valves, gave it a serious deep clean and gave it a great overall regrease and cleanup. The horn plays beautifully, has good action and is, besides a few dents, in really great condition.

Here are pics before the fixes. I can send some closeups of the new corkage etc, as well as some better photos.

Hi!

Yes, you commented on my original thread a year ago- I bought it a while before that. The repairs went super well. We didn't bother with some of the smaller cosmetic wrinkles or dents- it certainly is a thin horn, but the other repairs went like a dream. The new rubber corks and the fixed linkages are terrific and they fixed the 5% air spill from the spitvalves. It really plays well. I have a 6-month-old, and I sadly don't play it as much as I used to and need some diapers! I am keeping my C horn and my pocket horn as I play those a lot more often.

I have the CC version of this and it's an amazing player. I bought it because of who it belonged to never expecting to play as well as it does. They are smaller in size but very beefy, with a fairly large bore (around .800 if I remember correctly).

I was surprised when I first played her. She has such a full sound for what feels like a relatively normal sized horn. My upstairs neighbors LOVE when I am playing pedal tones.

Oh I remember now, yes back in August of 2016 you wrote up a thread. Too bad you have to sell it, but diapers are more important (they don't change themselves) hehe! Good luck Al! 8)
