Invention Horn

HISTORICAL HORNS

All of our horns are built according to traditional methods. The garland is engraved. All tubes as well as the bell of the instrument are soldered from hammered brass sheets and therefore show a soldering seam. The instruments are burnished by hand according to historical methods before they are polished. The use of these methods produces horns acoustically closer to original instruments, especially where tone colour is concerned.

INVENTION HORNS

Key notations refer to a1 = 442 Hz. Pitch a1 = 430 Hz and a1 = 415 Hz can be achieved by using the tuning slides 2 or 3 respectively 4.

The crooks of the Courtois horn are also required for the Raoux and the Eichentopf horn.
