Seeking advice & trial on a King "Eroica" horn [posted 10/6/20, still seeking advice 5/18/21] Betsy Olson is an adult horn player without a horn who might be interested in purchasing a King “Eroica” model. However, she’s never tried one and is wondering if any of us has one that she might try for a few minutes (meet up with her somewhere in the ‘Cities and she’ll bring her own mouthpiece). Contact Betsy at e.noel.olson@gmail.com 
1950’s Kruspe (Horner model) in top shape with excellent compression for sale - asking $3,900 if you're a local buyer! [still available 5/17/21] Paul Smith writes, “I am selling my lovely 1950’s Kruspe (Horner model) and would like to give our Twin Cities Horn Club members the first opportunity to buy it before I list it on the IHS site. I bought it from the original owner who purchased it in New York. This horn is in top shape with excellent compression. I’ve enjoyed how it produces a glorious rich sound especially in the lower register but is also able to sing brightly. I will be listing it for $5,500 on the IHS website but am hoping this fine horn will go a local hornist, for whom the price would be $3,900! A newer horn case is included.” Contact Paul at psonline@me.com or 651.442.8590 
Reynolds Contempora FE 03 double horn for sale - $995 (formerly $1,475), case included. [still available 5/17/21] Jenna McBride-Harris is selling a gently used full double horn (a Reynolds Contempora c. mid 1970's) that was carefully cleaned and refurbished recently by Jason Bystrom at Red Wing Music. This Reynolds horn has a lovely sound, slots beautifully (especially on the F horn slide) and would be an instrument that she would heartily recommend to a young serious student. If you are seriously considering the horn, Jenna can offer a trial period. Contact jennamchorn@gmail.com for more info, photos, etc. 
Conn 8D E series for sale. Asking $4,000. Marcus B.8 case also available for $275. [posted 5/17/21] Bruce McLellan describes his horn: "I am selling my E series 8D because I have stopped playing. I played and owned many 8Ds during my career. I believe this is the best letter series horn I have played. I have owned this instrument for about 12 years. My wish is that this horn go to someone who appreciates this instrument and will play it in a setting it deserves. The valves were done when I got the horn. All work since I have owned this horn has been done by Chuck Ward. This includes cutting the bell and installing an Alex/Lawson ring set, converting the thumb lever to a string action, stripping the lacquer, and replacing the lead pipe with a new 8D pipe that is the same as used on the New Vintage 8D. Chuck stamped the pipe "CW8D." I also have the original pipe. At some point in the horn's life there were a few small dents in the bell tail. They have been removed well and are hardly visible. Otherwise the horn is dent free. The horn has never had a serious injury. I am sure the horn needs a cleaning, particularly on the outside of the bell."
