B & S 'Sonora' compensator

This German-made F/Bb compensating horn


by 'B & S' was made in the Hoyer workshop, so it is


essentially  a Hans Hoyer horn, mass- produced in


order to keep the price down.


 It comes with a Dennis Wick # 5 mouthpiece and a good,

solid hard case.  Its 4th valve lever is rather more

conveniently placed for a small young player's left hand

than that of e.g. an Anborg compensator.


There is some evidence of repairs,  but the horn plays very

well despite its looks.  It falls into a 'midway category'

between 'Beginner' and 'Intermediate'. 





The photos can be viewed in greater detail
