This excellent GBMS ‘Scherzo’ Mini single Bb horn is exactly the right size for a small young player.

About 65% the size of a normal, full-size horn, it is angled appropriately to encourage a correct posture, embouchure and right hand position. The young student no longer has to "reach", stretch or strain the body to place the mouthpiece on the lips. 
The ‘Scherzo’ Mini horn produces an amazingly free, big sound just like a full-size horn.

Unlike various similar models which tend to play flat, this one has been tweaked and professionally adjusted to give very good intonation. With its 28 cm/11 inch bell diameter and small throat, a beginner’s right hand fits comfortably and correctly into the bell throat. An added advantage is that the young player can learn to play ‘stopped’ horn earlier. 

Maker’s specifications, summarised:

3 rotary valves.
Tubing bore: 11.60mm, smaller than that of a full-size horn, requiring less physical effort.
Case: lightweight, very protective, with side pocket and back-packstraps. 

Alloy / Finish: lacquered yellow brass with nickel silver outer slide legs for extra strength and durability, plus a gold-brass corrosion-resistant leadpipe / mouthpipe.

Thumb rest (so that the young player can get used to the thumb resting on a 4th valve lever) and adjustable finger hook. 

Silver-plated mouthpiece included.
