Wichita Band Instrument Company
Wichita, Kansas

The instrument comes from the Courtois-Paris workshops, and is engraved "Gaudet et Deslaurier, Successeurs", which dates the instrument as post-1921.

The piston valves are fairly tight, and do not yet need to be rebuilt. Included are two removable mouthpipes, F and Eb, with some dents/dings to the F crook (Refer to photos). This horn is not the "ascending third valve" construction.


Questions? We're happy to correspond with horn players, collectors, museums or anybody else who's interested.
