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 know, because I visited Johannes Finke’s workshop in 2016 and saw it for myself! The design and general architecture of this model is more innovative than the 63, its 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 recent slight increase in bell flare thickness gives a more intense ‘core’ to the sound.

 A totally beautiful horn in every way.

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