I have an Olds double french horn Bb and F# I'm trying to sell it immediately and I was wondering how much it might go for? It's model number is 441198, it's in great condition was previously used in an orchestra. Please answer asap.

Answer
Hi, it's not a double horn, it's a single F horn. Serial dates it to around 1963.

There's not a huge demand for single F horns these days as a lot of students start on a double straight away. So there are a lot of these on the market. But it would be an ideal horn for a smallish beginner. Probably sells in the region of $150-200.

Hope this helps
