Description

This is a compensating descant horn, built around high F with added B flat side. It sounds really nice and warm in the upper register and has great compression, which is very important on compensating horns.

I think it was built in the late 1960s or early 70s, I’m basing this on the mechanical S shaped linkages, which preceded the ball and socket design.

This horn has a pretty cool background that I’ll be happy to discuss with the interested parties. 

Thank you!
