Bright, compact feel and sound with outstanding tonal beauty. Bell proportions provide a dark but singing tone with fine legato characteristics. Yellow brass produces a higher tone color with more overtones and clearer projection. Capable of playing pianissimo staccato notes sensitively, clearly and evenly. Excellent horn for chamber orchestra. Available with attached bell or detachable bell.

This horn plays great and sounds great. It's built very well and sturdy. I like the tone, it's very full and round without being too boomy or brassy. It tunes well too. There's nothing not to like.
