Finke Bb/f Double Descant Horn
Helmut Finke patented on 3.7.1975 the basic idea of two separate mouthpipes- one for each horn section. It was first used on a Bb-F alto descant-horn, then transferred to the triple horn and now onto this new design.The major advantage of this design are: a) independable tuning of the two horn sides, b) better matching sound, a regular long lead pipe for the Bb side of the instrument.
Recommended taper size of bell-flare on this instrument is the Brendan taper, also available as "Americus". The horn can optionally be fitted with an descant Eb-crook and a low F extension for the A-valve, which allows to play the F harmonics. .
Metal: Nickel Silver or Yellow Brass or Gold Brass
