Maker: JOHANNES FINKE

Made in: Vlotho-Exter, Germany

Model:   EUROPA 66 ('Geyer wrap') formerly known as 'Brendan' Model.

Type:  F/Bb or Bb/F full double

Age:  NEW

Bell throat profile: medium-large (similar but not identical to Paxman’s ‘Europa’ bell).

Bell diameter:  31 cm

Central tubing bore: 12.1 mm

Alloy: lacquered gold brass

Bell flare: detachable

Water key: conventional type, on the detachable leadpipe.

Ultra-lightweight rotors made of a ‘Hi-Tech’ polymer, as used in the aerospace industry. This horn, Model 66, has nickel silver rotor casings, whereas its slightly less expensive ‘cousin’, the 63, has brass rotor casings.

Weight: 2.33 kg / 5 lb 3 oz

Adjustable finger hook 

Adjustable position and angle of the thumb (4th valve) lever.

Further details: a really wonderful and versatile hand-made double horn. The build quality and craftsmanship is absolutely 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.

NB: Price information and comparison: an equivalent horn with similar specification, if made by one of several well-known European horn makers, would cost at least £3000 more than this one!
