Used Sautermeister Natural horn in raw brass. Instrument was manufactured in Lyon, France c.1809-1833.

Instrument come with 9 crooks that change the tonal center to the following pitches; Ute, Mi, Fa, La, Cib, RE, Sol, Mib, Si
The instrument comes with original case that houses the bell section, all the crooks and the sheet brass mouthpiece. There are dings, scratches and dents throughout bell flare and tuning crooks. The crooks have the following issues; an unsoldered brace on the Ute Crook, a missing brace on the FA crook, a crack in the brass on the La crook, the Re Crook is missing a brace, the Sol crook is bent near the mouthpiece receiver and is missing a brace, the Mib crook has been twisted where it fits to the bell section and there is a sizable dent just after the leadpipe, and the Si crook has a crack next to the solder joint that is about 5/8". The bell flare is in decent condition but has dent and dings and paint is chipped and flaking. The instrument is 200 years old instrument and it does have some obvious wear and tear, so it is being sold as is. This is a unique instrument and relic of brass history.
