My collection is up for sale..

Postby DBO » Sun Jan 14, 2018 3:52 am

FIRST AND FOREMOST - These horns are all located on the east coast of Australia. Due to the huge expense in shipping, my preference is therefore to sell to an Australian collector. I will of course consider offers from U.S. buyers but please keep the shipping situation in mind.

As is often the case, priorities change in life and apart from my first Nathan's, I've resigned myself to reluctantly sell the remainder of my limited collection. I haven't been active here in quite some time and my collection is gathering dust because we downsized to a smaller property (limited opportunity to sound the horns unless I go drive for hours).

Anyway, the horns will not be to everyone's liking because they are not reflecting original paints or finishes but they have all been lovingly cared for, so I hope they can find a good home where they will be valued by a collector or enthusiast for the wonderful chimes they are. Let's just say that fleabay will be my last resort!

The Leslies were purchased from a board member here over 4 years ago and I've hand finished both horns. The RS5 has been taken back to bare metal by soda blasting and all chambers were then hand polished to a fine finish. Internally and out, they are in perfect shape with new bolts and gaskets. The diaphragms are showing some age on the fine edges but are otherwise fine.

The RS3 was paint finished in blue and white, with raised lettering buffed back to highlight in metal. Again the chambers were hand finished to chrome like polish. The 25 bell has a slight dent in the flute. It had a quite pronounced crease originally and I've manged to get some of it out, but a minor depression remains.

The K5LLA was purchased from Luke at realtrainhorns and are as bought, finished in a silver/chrome powder coat. I've never opened the chambers to inspect rubbers since I was told they were replaced and the sound never raised doubt in my mind.

Photos attached - plus there's some on an old thread here:

PM me if you have questions, need more photos or want to discuss offers.

Can't believe that mongrel stole my photos! No, they've never been listed on eBay. I would suggest anyone who sees that link to stay clear of it - that's a con!

That’s what I thought. I reported him. He sent me this message after I did so. What an idiot.
