A superb, lightweight, free-blowing horn with Medium bell taper, hand made in Germany by skilled crafts-persons using top quality materials and parts made in the Finke workshop.  I know, because I visited Johannes Finke’s workshop in 2016 and saw it 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.

 A totally beautiful horn in every way.

Case: not included in the price, but a selection is usually available or can be ordered.
