My sone is 13 and in need of a double horn. We have looked at a bunch had he likes the Yamaha YHR-567 and/or Bach 1102. However, I am not too crazy about buying him a +$3000 horn just quite yet. His single which we turned in on the lease, looked like a tornado hit it.
So we are trying to locate a used one. If anyone has one of these horns mentioned in good or better condition, or knows of one, please send me a PM.

There are lots of good used horns out there, but you have to spend some time. I have shopped at great local places like San Carlos' Hornucopia (no web presence sorry), online, and privately. My everyday horn is a 900 buck used Meister Karl Dressel that plays better than almost any other horn I've tried, and I have 2 pre-1982 Paxman custom horns. If you have anywhere within a couple hundred miles that has a good used selection, I just recommend doing that. Horns like the Kruspe compensator will last him forever and probably better than most anything in the 3-5k range if not more. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ed-Kruspe-Erfurt-Compensating-Double-French-Horn-Model-Gumbert-Kruspe-/332162122254?hash=item4d5667c20e:g:mxYAAOSwtfhYoNbR

Another amazingly great maker was Walter Monnig. I've never run into a bad one. Here's one on ebay right now http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Meister-Walter-Monnig-Professional-Double-French-Horn-60s-East-Germany-/252880209408?hash=item3ae0d5c600:g:m~0AAOSwVm5Y96Bh

Another kruspe is up on ebay. This would definitely be considered a pro horn. Lovely thing too. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ed-Kruspe-Erfurt-Compensating-Double-French-Horn-Model-Gumbert-Kruspe/232339953346?_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D72fb47772ab943048d4fd4e8707e4fc9%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D182574167463&_trkparms=pageci%253Ab15a3649-3e29-11e7-b5c9-74dbd180409b%257Cparentrq%253A2b33f68d15c0ac8033320d94fffeba4c%257Ciid%253A1
