Each consignment horn that we sell is thoroughly tested by our staff to ensure that you are receiving a quality product. These are the thoughts that were shared by our staff: 

This model 40 Paxman descant pre-dates the more standard design, but is very similar in construction. The instrument is free blowing and is easy to play. 

Descant horns are typically built as double horns that stand in Bb with an F alto side that is shorter than the F side of a standard double horn. They are ideal for playing high, light literature.
