Hi,
a friend of mine is looking for an affordable pro level alto horn.
in german ebay you can find this Borgani alto:

Buyer says:bought new 6-7years ago, barely used, pro level horn.
it had a general overhaul not long ago.
no dings or dongs, no leaks!laquer like new.
The price 6 years ago was 2.495,00 Euro.
no informations about the model or serialnumber.
your opinions are well appreciated!!!
Thanks
Thomas

You would expect someone from SAXony to have access to all SAXes! Just a joke!
I think this is a great pice for a great horn. We have a number of Borgani lovers here.

Not really.........it looks a bit like this Borgani Jubilee pink brass (if it is a Jubilee it is a steal!) , it should say Jubilee somewhere if it is

Pics are crappy and I don't read German. It's hard to tell. I'd asked the seller for more detailed pics and a serial number. If it has a "J" in the in the serial number it's a Jubilee. It appears to a pre-jubille. It could be a Ponzol model. I believe that the Ponzols were the pre-jubilee offerings. There's lots of info on them in the SOTW archives (hint: search button...). Or, it could be the model just before the Ponzol.

I had a pre-ponzol tenor for awhile that was kinda beat up. Yet, it still played great. Bright but broad and spread sounding. Sort of a cross between a Yamaha and a Keilwerth.
