Single Horns

High G/F Single Horn

This instrument is especially designed for the high horn parts of the baroque music. With its smaller taper, the brighter sound better fits the needs to play with smaller baroque ensembles. As an option, the instrument can be fitted with a high-F lead pipe or/and with a high Eb pipe with a set of longer tuning crooks.

Bb Single Horn

Weighing only 1,7 kg this is a light weight horn ideal for solo work and chamber music. It can be supplied with an extra F-extension or be available with a fitted 5th valve. The extension is to be used instead of the stopping extension. A further possibility is the B/C-A where the C-valve is operated by a second thumb lever. (With the C-valve the single horn in Bb has an even better a” -(sounding d”)). The tone of our single Bb-horn can hardly be distinguished from that of a doublehorn. Its response and the lightly moving finger-levers give the hornplayer a feeling of effortless agility. The single Bb-horn can be ordered with bell-size Brendan, Europa and Americus.

TAPER OPTIONS 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. AMERICUS – this 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.

Compact Horns

This is not a student model where a lower price means many concessions. The compact Bb horn is like the other FINKE models only made of the best quality materials. Children and young people often play horn that weight 2 kg and more – too heavy for young arms!

The Bb horn from the Finke range is an improvement here. The compact Bb-Horn can be used without reservation by the youngest of horn players as it only weight 1.4 kg. And despite its small size a full round tone can be produced. Some of the standard features are the adjustable finger hook and the flipper to be flexible and supportive for growing hands. Not only children and young horn-players but amateurs and professional horn players will discover for themselves this small Bb horn as it is a high quality instrument. It also helps players to overcome orthopaedic and embouchure problems.It is ideal for chamber music where a small sized horn is preferable and a double horn not always necessary. During the holidays the same horn enables you to keep your lip in trim. With a detachable bell it weights a little more but in return fits in a small case. The compact Bb horn can even be modified with a set of tuning slides to a horn in F. Another option is the A/stop valve to support even further ambitions.

Natural Horn

This is a copy of an original 18th century Bohemian horn and is made of especially thin brass. The bell is attached with a brass garland, the braces are made out of small tubes like the original instrument. It can be supplied with a complete set of crooks from high C to C basso. A master crook and a very long tuning-slide allow extra tuning possibilities. Further crooks for a very low pitch can also be ordered.
