A superb lightweight free-blowing horn with Medium bell taper, hand made in Germany by skilled craftspersons 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 model is more innovative than the older Model 63, the 69's wide F horn tuning slide embracing the main slide rather like Alexander’s 200 model.

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 immense potential range of tonal shading is awesome.

 A totally beautiful horn in every way.

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

 

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