Our B horn model D2 lives up to professional standards and is extremely versatile. Created with input from horn players in leading international orchestras, it is worthy of any concert hall and excellent for solo and chamber music, too. An F extension is available to lengthen the A stop valve so that the natural tones of the low F horn can be played.
