£590.00

 

 

 

Maker: MEISTER HANS HOYER


 

Made in GDR, the former East Germany


 

Type: Single Bb/A+, fairly similar (but not identical)

to an Alexander Model 90.

 

Bore / Throat: medium


 

Alloy: yellow brass


 

Bell flare: fixed


 

Visual/cosmetic condition: fairly good all round; there is

lacquer wear in the usual places and also where

braces have been repaired. A few small dings and

knocks are merely cosmetic issues with no effect on

the horn's playing qualities. These small blemishes

are reflected in the very reasonable price.


 

Weight: 1.93 kg


 

A fluent player over the whole range, surprisingly light in weight. In common with many East German-made Bb/A+ horns, its stopping 'H-piece' is slightly too long for well-tuned stopped notes. However, with good, tight, right hand technique, without the H-piece, the A slide pulled a long way out gives excellent stopped notes.

 

NB: although a professional-quality horn, it is also listed in the Intermediate category on account of its sub-£2K price.
