Sold: Howarth S30C English Horn

I surprised Suzy with this instrument, a Howarth S20C Grenadilla English Horn, for Christmas a while back. It took Kessler & Sons Music a while to find it but they got it just in time. Suzy plays clarinet, sax, flute, and oboe and our band needed an occasional English Horn solo covered. But after I purchased it for us we found out how many English Horn players there are in the Seattle area. Here is an English Horn solo for your consideration.

So I am offering it for sale at a significant discount from new. I will be listing it on eBay at a starting price of $3500 plus shipping. This is a lightly used instrument that many English Horn players would aspire to own. If you would like to forgo the eBay listing ping me now. Here are some pictures to whet your appetite:

The three reeds were made by a professor who’s name I have since forgotten. The end corks have wood caps, shown in picture. The bocal is a #2. Cheers.

Update: this is now listed on eBay at
