Vlotho-Exter, Germany


Model: 63

Type: Full-Double (‘Geyer-Knopf’) F/Bb or Bb/F

with quick change reversible 4th valve and multi-way

adjustable thumb lever.


Bell-throat profile: M-L (similar but not identical to Paxman E, ‘Europa’) 

Alloy: lacquered yellow brass, gold brass  leadpipe, nickel silver tuning slide inner and outer legs.

Rotors: carbon fibre, corrosion-resistant.

Bell flare: detachable

  • Weight: 2.32 kg

  • Water key: conventional type, on the leadpipe,

  • Finger hook: adjustable

Further details: a wonderful and versatile Geyer-style double horn, hand made in Germany using top quality materials and parts made in the Finke workshop: I visited Vlotho recently and saw their superb workmanship for myself.

Every pitch is exactly where it should be, the rotor action is smooth, light and positive, and the huge potential range of tonal shading is awesome. 

Case: airline-friendly lightweight compact case with backpack straps.

This horn is 1.5 years old and has had only very light use as a 'demonstration' instrument for several exhibitions and festivals.

It has a few very slight lacquer scratches but, other than that, it is, in effect, a new horn.

NB: Price information and comparison: an equivalent horn, with similar specification, made by one of the more well-known European horn makers e.g. Alexander, Paxman and Schmid, would cost at least 45% more.
