Wanted:2 valve G mellophone


Recommended Posts

I am looking for 2 valve G mellophones. I prefer King, Kanstul, or Olds, but will consider all. I may even consider piston/rotor. Let me know what you have.

King mellos were all 2P. Although I built a 3P version last year, currently on loan to Bonnie Ott.

Kanstul mellos are all 3P, except for the 2P sets built for the USMC Commandant's Own.

Olds mellophones were all PR. One 2P prototype was shown at the 1977 DCI Congress.

I purchased it at a online auction. It is engraved with US MARINE DRUM AND BUGLE CORPS.

I don't have it in front of me right now, so I don't know exactly what it says.

Govliquidation.com had two Kanstul horns on auction about a month ago.
