• Bb-Horn · Model 97

    The single Bb horn offers the same advantage of lightness than the single F horn. Single Bb horns are highly appreciated by “high” hornists because they can make challenges in opera or concert that much easier. Typically, single Bb horns will be found in chamber music and solo situations.

    The sound of Bb horns is lean and supple. The notes in the low register below low Bb can be successfully played on Model 97 due to an extra fourth extension.
