Among our most special instruments, we offer two true-to-original baroque horn replicas in one key respectively. One in the key of D after Michael Leichamschneider, the other one in the key of F after Johannes Leichamschneider.
In the case of original baroque horns, a continuously conical bore can be found from the mouthpiece to the bell. The bells are therefore of different size, depending on the length of the instrument. This greatly improves the bendability of the tones.
Due to the continuously conical bore, there is a better acoustic support for playing without hand stopping technique, which is why it can also be played well without this technique.
The replica of these two originals was initiated by and in collaboration with Martin Mürner, hornist and restorer for historical brass instruments.
