Single F

F crook


Stop valve

Early 20th  Century

Out of stock



This Kruspe was built in the early 20th Century between 1905 and 1918. It is an unlacquered single F instrument with a crook and rotary valves,including a stop valve. It has the Ed Kruspe/Eagle carrying a horn spout engraving and is marked “Hoflieferant”, meaning purveyor to the court.

The horn currently plays very sharp A=446, however there may be various options should it be required to play at A=440.

Currently it can be played as an F single with the stop valve pressed!

The crook could be replaced with a longer one to create an A440 horn with stop valve. Or it could be used with the thumb valve acting as a C valve…!
