Standard F/Bb French Horn

Countless band programs now start students on a double horn because it affords players greater accuracy and improved stability in the upper register. Designed for the beginning student, the BFH1297 is responsive with excellent intonation and versatility in tonal color, which is critical for the developing hornist. The Geyer Wrap provides a freer blowing instrument which allows for a bigger sound. In the Blessing tradition, the BFH1297 offers maximum playability at an affordable price.
