Finke Brendan and Americus Double Horns

Kruspe was already producing the first doublehorn in 1897 in a compensating form which was shortly followed by a full double horn. Up until today nothing has changed on the basic form. Different models only show a different valve arrangement. Meister Fritz Knopf's arrangement of valves is still well-liked today. Here all the valves are in a row with the change valve after the third valve. FINKE double horns are "Knopf"-models. In the 20's Karl Geyer from Chicago also took over this valve arrangement. His version allows long tuning-slides, a long mouthpipe and wide bends. We make the Knopf-Geyer-model in many different variations. The professional models are the Americus and the Brendan, both with the same wrap but different taper, their characteristics are described below. The instrument shown is in gold brass with detachable bell and options like garland, flipper and adjustable finger hook.
