The wait period for a Cantesanu Double is approximately 5 months as of October 1’st, 2018. Each additional order adds up to 2 months to the wait period. The current price for a horn is $12,500 USD. Included as standard options are: a detachable bell, an adjustable thumb lever & finger hook, an Amado water-key on the leadpipe and a custom leather hand guard. The horn comes, as designed, with a Regular (spun) Meinl bell. A Hand Hammered bell is optional (this will add $300 to the order). A case is not included, however the Cantesanu Horns edition MB-7 case is offered at a discounted rate when ordered with a horn.
A deposit of $2,500 is required for placing an order. Receipt of the deposit will put your name on the list for the next available horn and locks in the current price. The deposit is considered a commitment to purchase the instrument once completed, and is used to acquire all the materials needed and so it is not refundable. The remaining balance is due upon completion, at pick-up or before shipping. Alternatively, the whole sum can be accepted at the time of order. There are no returns, however you can rest assured the quality of the horn you will receive is every bit the same as every other horn I've made. I take pride in my work, consistency and quality are my top priorities, and know that every instrument I make is carrying my shop's reputation into the world.
As with everything the shop offers, students receive a 10% discount on instruments as well.
