B & S is the maker of Meister Hans Hoyer horns,

 

so, in effect this 'Sonora' model is a Hoyer.

 

 

Although a little on the heavy side, (2.39 kg) its build-

 

quality is very good, as is its valve compression.

 

There is minimal lacquer wear, in a few places, and

 

several very small but non-invasive dings.

 

Its hard case is 'much used but absolutely OK',

 

however,  a good lightweight case can be supplied

 

for an extra £60.

 

 

This attractive horn has a medium-dark but ringing

 

tone quality, and an impressively even response over

 

the whole range.    Its F side is quite free-blowing

 

compared to some 'stuffier' horns.  It feels rather like

 

a Knopf or Kruspe! 

 

Generally, a good, inexpensive 4-valve compensator

 

that will take an 'improving' player up to Grade 8 and

 

even diploma standard.

 

Its 4th valve can be configured for F/Bb or Bb/F.

 

 

The photos can be viewed in greater detail

by opening and saving them.
