KRUSPE, nickel silver

Type:  F/Bb compensating double



Bell throat profile: Medium-Large


Alloy: unlacquered nickel silver


Bell flare: detachable


Valve compression: good


Visual/cosmetic condition: generally very good.


Further details: a lovely, lightweight horn dating from the

era when all high quality brass instruments were hand-

made by a single 'master craftsman'.


A very good player with a clear, well-defined high

register, slightly more free-blowing on the F side than

on many compensators, meaning that it can be used on

a low part almost as effectively as a full double.


 Although a 'memorable piece of horn history', it is a

practical, usable, characterful example, with a lot of

life left in it.


 Its 'sub-£2K' price qualifies it for a parallel

listing in the 'Intermediate' category, although it is 

a professional-quality horn.
