The Paxman Model 20

The Paxman Model 20, is the flagship of the Paxman range and it belonged to David Cooper. This is rare pre-85 horn. Radovan Vladkovic and Alessio Alegrini are known for playing this model horn. It is a completely original and unique design that is built around the Merewether system which allows the air to flow through the valve section in the same direction on both the F and Bb sides of the instrument. This minimizes airflow disruption from the turning rotor and enables characteristic smooth slurring and legato playing on both the F and Bb horns, and when changing between them.

This horn is in 8/10 cosmetically with perfect compression. The horn will arrive fully polished. Great legendary Paxman sound, easy to play. Comes with fix bell Marcus Bonna case in fair condition. Our customers have 2 weeks after receiving the horn to test it, keep it or return. If returned in the same condition the customer will receive 100% refund minus the FedEx ground shipping charge.

We are available for Facetime/Zoom to present this horn live, text us at 530 774 6871.
