Kuhlohorn for sale - no limit
My Kuhlohorn, made pre-1930 by Clemens August Glier in Markneukirchen, has been living an extremely undisturbed life in my trumpet cabinet... I simply don't have the gigs for it, now that the Vienna Klezmer Orchestra has folded. But it is too good to just stand and wait - it needs to be played. So I am letting it go to anyone who promises to play it.
It's in play-at-once shape, all valves move fast and have good compression, the slides pop nicely. Several small dings on the upper side, but nothing serious (see pictures). Last serviced July 2021 by Votruba in Vienna.
Takes normal trumpet shank mouthpieces, sounds best with deep trumpet cups. Intonation as good as it gets for a Kuhlohorn.
Any offers accepted, + $70 international postage and packing. Highest offer before 1 January wins!!

What does it sound like?
@administrator Like a Kuhlohorn ;)... somewhere between a very, VERY wide cornet and a narrow flugel. It certainly is an elegant sound. In the Vienna Klezmer Orchestra, a big flugel would have had difficulties because of the multitude of clarinets (five clarinet parts and up to eight players each!), but the Kuhlohorn easily dominated the clarinets without being trumpety.
Is it a good fit for jazz & blues?
@jamusu Quite a few jazz people have used kuhlohorns.
Instrument is now sold.
