Model Description

The THEIN French Horn Bb / high F is a full double horn. This French Horn is preferred by „high“ horn players. It can be expanded to low F with a 6th valve.

Its unusual shape is based on the idea of partially shifting the weight of the horn to the right hand, in order to relieve the left shoulder. At the same time, this design leads to easier drainage of the instrument.

The long, open lead pipe and the craftsmanship guarantee for the player, the evenness of the sound and a light and strong feeling, without losing the resistance.

The resistance can be adjusted individually by choosing an appropriate lead pipe.

For this French Horn we offer a wide variety of bell ends in different materials, wall thicknesses and processing methods.
