HANS HOYER Bb/A+ with built-in F extension

Click to enlarge








Made in GDR, the former East Germany

Type: Single Bb/A+/ F extension

         similar (but not identical) to an Alexander 97


Bore / Throat: medium

Alloy: unlacquered gold brass

Bell flare: fixed

Visual/cosmetic condition: there is some tarnished brass in the

'hard-to-reach' places on the back of the horn,  and a few minor


These purely cosmetic blemishes are the main reason for the

horn's very modest price.

Weight: 2.2 kg

A lovely player with a spectacular high register and a

surprisingly full, rich, 'complex' sound.


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.
