French Horn/purchasing a horn

Question
I'm contacting you to ask you to look at the following links and give me your opinion on the horns and prices. I've read through your questions and answers and these seem to be the horns that you recommend for someone in my position: I'm returning to playing after many years, so I would like a horn and mouthpiece that would enhance my experience. Thank you for your help.

Answer
Hi, thanks for the question.

They're all good-looking horns, the last Yamaha is a trade seller but he seems to have a better price than the private ones... but any wouldn't disappoint. Looking for a mouthpiece is a bit tricky as well as there are so many, but I do remember answering that question a number of times... so probably you've already got my advice. If not, feel free to ask again...
