This one is not in playing condition and has all of the problems Graftons usually do, but it is complete and might be of interest to someone who needs parts or is handy with these. I bought this in Melbourne OZ back in the early nineties and have never done anything with it. If you are interested I will send you more pictures.

Perhaps I should clarify, this is not an offer to give away this horn, I am not attempting to sell it or I would have posted it for sale. Yet, if anyone really wants or needs it I might be persuaded to part with it. In the future I will try to be more precise with my wording.....

Yes, the photo is of my horn. Here are a few more...

If it were not for the fussy little springs and the poorly designed method of attaching the key work to the horn, these would be awesome players. This one has not been regulated well enough to play since I have had it, but the notes you can get out of it sound really good and the instrument looks like it is made out of ivory rather than plastic. If you were able to repair the two main mounting tabs and work with those springs I am pretty sure this horn could be made playable with a little work.
