RT91/92 Bb/f Descant Horn
The Hoyer RT91/92 was suggested by Rick Todd, Principal Horn of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. The LA specific Horn sound, also influenced by Rick Todd's teacher Vincent DeRosa for more than five decades, is most important for this famous soloist.
This Horn is made of thin brass/gold brass material and guarantees a secure response especially in the high range. The bell is designed in German size and completely made of one piece sheet metal. The famous German rotary valves are equipped with the 3B (Bronze Ball Bearing) linkage system or alternatively with string mechanism.
For Rick Todd, who plays most of his jazz recordings with a Bb/high-f Descant Horn, the variability of the instrument is most important. Thanks to Rick's co-operation, Hans Hoyer managed to design an instrument that is capable of playing homogeneously throughout its entire register.
