Click to enlarge









Made in GDR, the former East Germany


Type: 5 valve compensating double in F/Bb/A+



Bore / Throat: medium

Alloy: unlacquered gold brass

Bell flare: detachable

Visual/cosmetic condition: very good

Weight: 2.39 kg

A lovely player with a superb high register and a

surprisingly full, rich, 'complex' sound.


In common with many East German-made horns with a 5th valve (A+), 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.


Case: Thomann, lightweight, with backpack straps.



This horn is currently with its owner in Brecon, Wales, UK.
