Triple Horn

Triple Horn Back sideFinke produces one of the lightest weight triple horns. The full triple only weights 2.7 kg with detachable bell. The well balanced horn allows it to be held in playing position over a long period without tiring. Apart from the mouthpiece receiver FINKE triple horns are the only ones with separate mouthpipes for the high and low horn sections. The intonation benefits from this design. Finke triple horns have a full tone, even in the low register. Thus professional musicians especially appreciate the high F section of their Finke horn. It has an astoundingly sonorous tone. Another feature of our outstanding design is the possibility to set the descant F section using a longer tuning slide into descant Eb.

Triple Horn detail view

BRENDAN – our Geyer-model, named after the Irish Saint who discovered the „New World" in the 11th century, captures the richest integrity of tone in the fortissimo range without the harshness found in most Geyer copies. It is possible that players used to a far larger throat will find the Brendan the perfect balance of response and power. The Brendan taper can be well combined with different bell flares, more about it on the Options page.

AMERICUS – our most popular instrument is perhaps our most unusual! How can an instrument with only a large throat provide the broadness of tone of the large Kruspe style instruments, yet be so easy to play ? With success the Americus has invaded the very bastion of the large, nickel hornplaying school, providing the player with all the power and aggression demanded but with far superior accuracy.

The descant f-horn has an independant tuning slide.

Eb crook
The descant f-horn tuning slide can be replaced with a descant Eb-crook.

The piston valve, located right after the mouthpiece receiver, switches between the Bb/F horn pipe and the descant horn pipe. The lead pipe for the Bb/F part is exchangeable, its length is the same as on the double horn models. The piston is made of stainless steel.

With use of modern technology, Finke reduced considerable the weight of the horns and with that improved the response.


For all our instruments various leadpipes are available, which change the tonal color and reaction of the horn to adjust it to the players` needs.
