Description

This delightful little piston horn is in lovely condition and unusually is a 2 valve model. A great addition to the collection of anyone interested in the development of the horn – the lack of a 3rd valve keeps it light and surprisingly can be very successfully worked around with trick fingerings.

They were often made for the military in this configuration – the powers that be deeming the extra valve to be a concert hall luxury!

With F crook. Sold without case.

From the collection of the esteemed ex 4th horn of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Chris Larkin
