Linton, where did it come from?
« on: September 21, 2020, 07:18:42 PM »
OK so following on the success of my last post......
I have had in my possession for the past few weeks(in my garage hiding it from the wife) a Linton horn. I had read a little that they were made by various manufacturers. Don't know if I have that right or not. I did a quick search here and it didn't turn up much except that it may have a barrel insert. Wasn't really expecting that but I looked and to my surprise it was. It has a small bore 14.75.
The instrument itself looks barely used. Only problem i had was the bottom of the mouthpiece (3/8" abouts) had broken off in the barrel. I pulled it out and abs cemented it back on the mp. I doubt I'm going to use it but hey whatever. Funny, pads hardly looked used, some don't even have hole impressions. Seating of the pads looks horrible if indication of the impressions on the pads them self loon unbalanced. Otherwise everything looks to be sound.
Question is who made it, if not Linton, and what sort of time frame am i looking at. Malerne, sml?
