Compensating double horns are a cool idea. Basically they are a single Bb horn with F extensions, which means that when you play on the F side of the horn the air passes through the rotors twice. The reason for this design is to create a much lighter horn which still has the full range of a standard double horn. Because the air passes through the valves twice the compression needs to be extra tight and in this horn it is fabulous, with a reading of 0.9. This is amazing because this horn probably dates to the 1920's or 30's. It is made of unlacquered brass and has been in storage for a long time, evident by the discoloring. There is no apparent dezyncification though there is one tiny patch at the far end of the leadpipe. Overall it is in good condition with lots of little dings around the rim of the bell.
Own a useful piece of playable history. This horn can still be used in any modern setting.
No case is included.
