Alexander 103 French Horn

RRP $14995 Enquire
Description

The world famous Alexander 103 horn was designed in 1907 with the valve system patented in 1909. The most popular Alexander horn, and one of the most popular double horns of all time can be heard throughout the world, including the Berliner Philharmoniker. All Alexander horns are hand-made in Mainz, Germany with flawless workmanship.

The 103 has a light, compact sound, considered the characteristic ‘Alexander sound’. The thumb valve turns only 60° resulting in a short thumb action. The combination of full Bb and F horn offers the musician great flexibility in intonation and tone.  Only a screwdriver is needed to adjust the instrument to stand in either Bb or F. All rotors are activated by silent Minibal linkages, therefore no restringing will ever be needed!

Our Alexander horns are available in yellow or gold brass, and all feature hand-hammered detachable bells. Hand-hammered bells have more consistent metal thickness which improves response and projection. New horns come with an Alexander case, Alexander mouthpiece, set of Hetman oils/grease and pencil clip.

Yamaha 314 French Horn

RRP $3499 Enquire
Description

Yamaha’s student F single horn is a great choice for every young student looking to play the French horn. Being a single horn, it lacks much of the tubing of a standard double French Horn, making it much lighter and more approachable for a young student. The bell throat is also smaller than double horns of a similar standard, suiting it to smaller hands. The YHR-314II comes with a small, beginner’s mouthpiece (32C4), and Yamaha hard case to keep it safe at school. All Yamaha instruments come with a 36 month manufacturer’s warranty.
