Heavy Valve Caps
Heavy valve caps contribute to rich timbre and resonance.
Hard German silver inner and outer tuning slide tubes
The use of hard German silver reduces decay while achieving fast response.
MS Size Bell
A narrow MS size bell plays an important role in producing this horn’s lively sound.
Adjustable Pinky Hook
Can be adjusted to match the size of the player’s hand for ideally positioned, fatigue-free holding.
High-precision bearings enhance the instrument’s lever action response, while phosphor bronze bearings in the brass valve casing maximize overall durability.
Bb Tuning Slide
