Model:  EUROPA  (Model 63)

Type:  F/Bb or Bb/F full double, ‘Geyer-Knopf’

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 yellow brass, gold brass leadpipe, nickel silver tuning slide legs.

Bell flare: detachable

Water key: conventional type, on the leadpipe.

A lovely lightweight horn, hand made in Germany by skilled craftsmen using top quality materials and parts made in the Finke workshop.  I know, because last year I visited Johannes Finke’s workshop and saw it for myself!

Weight: 2.30 kg / 5 lb 2 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 are both absolutely 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. This is not the same horn advertised in http://halsteadmusic.co.uk/shop/full-double-horns/finke-model-63, it is a different brand new instrument. 

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!
