ABOUT THE FRENCH HORN
The French Horn was developed around 1650 in France and is a larger version of the small crescent-shaped horns
that had been redesigned with circularly coiled tubing. Over the following decades, "hand-stopping" techniques along
with additional lengths of tubing "crooks" were necessary for playing in many keys. (Modern players use hand-stopping to
affect intonation and tone color.) The invention of valves in the early 19th century revolutionized the French Horn,
allowing the player to alter the length of the tubing by the motion of a finger. The modern F horn has 3 valves,
circular coils of narrow tubing flaring at the one end to a wide bell, and a funnel-shaped mouthpiece that
accounts for the horn's soft, mellow tone.
Our single F French Horns are made with a lacquered brass
body and come equipped with a rose brass
mouthpiece and case. Mechanical features include tapered
rotary valves, nickel-sleeved outer tuning slides, a .472" bore and 11.9" bell.
