This is a very interesting instrument! With all the are an attention that goes into making an instrument from scratch in one place, this is a lovely Finke single Bb instrument. Unusually, this horn does not have a stopping valve or an F extension and therefore very light, but perhaps not particularly useful for a professional or advanced player in the average concert where the ability to hand stop or play lower than pedal C might be useful. This horn would suit an adult beginner who is going to learn on the Bb side only, or someone who is looking for an extremely light horn. Please note, this instrument has suffered somewhat from what is commonly known as red rot. In this instance it appears that a chemical reaction has started to encourage a broad de-zincification of the brass. This should only affect the brass in the very long term – not in the immediate future. It has plenty of life left in it! This horn comes with a fixed bell fiberglass case.
