A superb, lightweight free-blowing horn with Medium-Large bell taper, hand made in Germany by skilled crafts-persons using top quality materials and parts made in the Finke workshop.  I visited Vlotho recently and saw their superb workmanship for myself.


The design and general architecture of this, the most recent Finke model, is that of an original CARL GEYER double horn, with its wide hoop and small diameter change valve.

Further details: a really wonderful and 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 potential range of tonal colours is awesome.

Case: not included in the price, but several are usually available or can be ordered.


 A totally beautiful horn in every way.

NB: This horn is currently located in Buckinghamshire, UK; contact information can be provided on request.
