The THEIN Low F-Trumpet developed from the Baroque Trumpet in the 19th century. The addition of 3 valves made it possible to play chromatically, even in the lower range.
In the French area the piston valves were used, in the German-Austrian area the rotary valves. THEIN offers both versions of the Low F-Trumpet.
The Low F-Trumpet can be tuned to Bb, by using a conversion set.
