    I'm not aware Richard Smith does post horn's. WE play on a set of his chromatic fanfares and cornets, they are excellent.

    When my last band bought a set of Heralds off Richard Smith he brought a post horn to try.

    They're ok. I guess they blow nice but at the end of the day it's excess pipes thats been lying around the workshop made into a post horn! A bit over priced too, he quoted us £495 each.

    If you're looking around, try Rosehills and Rath, theyre pretty good. But nothing compares to the old Boosey and Hawkes, I got mine from a TA Military Band and its beautiful.
