Rhenus C

The modern classic

The Rhenus convinces with its multifaceted tone and distinctive core. Due to its easy response and good tone separation it creates a very controlled feeling. This comes – as a by-product – with an easy upper register. Galileo-typical are an excellent intonation and balanced centering in all registers. All this makes it a true allround instrument that can be used in any setting, even beyond solo and orchestral work.

  • Hand-hammered brass bell with diameter 122 mm made of one-piece, wall thickness 0.55 mm
  • Mainz rim
  • Valve section in brass with stainless steel valves
  • Valve buttons with mother-of-pearl inserts
  • Bore: 11.7 mm
  • Reversed leadpipe

The Rhenus Series

With the Rhenus, we have broken new ground in search of a universally applicable, yet characteristic timbre. The usual great intonation and responsiveness of a Galileo was combined with the wonderfully coloured and under-the-skin sound of well-known vintage models. Thus, the traditional appearance was enriched with fresh influences. New bell shapes were oriented after vintage models. This was combined with a reversed leadpipe architecture for good airflow. Turned outer slide legs give a traditional mass distribution, but without the inherent stresses of soldered flanges. The Rhenus series is the modern classic at Galileo.
