  A superb, lightweight, free-blowing horn with Medium-Large bell taper, hand made in Germany by skilled craftspersons using top quality materials and parts made in the Finke workshop.   I know, from personal experience, because I visited Johannes Finke’s workshop and saw it for myself! 

    The design and general architecture of this model is more innovative than the Models 63 and 65, its wide F horn tuning slide embracing the main slide rather like that of Alexander’s 200 model.

    Further details: a really wonderful, versatile hand-made double horn. The build quality and craftsmanship are superb. Every pitch is exactly where you expect it to be, the rotor action is smooth, light and positive, and the immense  range of potential tonal shading is awesome.

 A totally beautiful horn in every way.

 

Case: PROTEC 'Propac' in excellent condition.
