Second Hand French Horns
We usually have a selection of second hand French Horns in stock. Ex-rental mini/junior horns are also often available.
French Horns are among the most confusing instruments to non-players! While the horn is pitched in F, Bb or both (compensating and double horns), the player always thinks and reads in F (except when transposing but that’s a whole other topic) using different fingerings depending on what pitch of horn is used. French horns have the second longest basic length of tubing (i.e not including valve slides) at approximately 12 feet, only the tuba is longer.
Most of our second hand instruments are being sold on behalf of our sister company Southwest Winds Ltd. Our second hand instruments are serviced before being offered for sale, and are subject to six months guarantee. This may not apply to instruments being sold on commission. VAT is not chargeable on our second hand instruments.
We are in the process of adding current second hand stock to this page. In the meantime our full list can be seen here.
