Holton Collegiate 3 Valve F Bell Front Alto Horn 1964 Serial #377522


Comes with Eb Tuning Slide Extenders and Mouthpiece!



This Holton Collegiate 3 valve F bell front alto horn is in good condition with 75-80% of the lacquered finish remaining. There is a dent in the bell just under the engraving and the bell edge does have a little bit of a wave to it.  The main tuning slide crook has some dings and is currently stuck inside the Eb tuning slide extenders.  This means the horn currently plays in Eb and will until the main tuning slide can be pulled.  Please see pictures. The serial number is “377522” making this a vintage 1964 horn. The engraving on the bell reads “Collegiate by Holton Elkhorn, Wis. U.S.A.”. It has its original Collegiate by Holton mouthpiece included in good used condition. It comes with its Eb tuning slide extenders so you can play in Eb as well as F. It comes in the original case in good used condition. The case does have some letters painted on it. This is a great playing little alto horn! The horn plays well and the valves are nice and quick. It plays with a nice big sound and really opens up in the upper register.
