It's easy to Purchase a Double French Horn. Simply select quantity, any accessories you want, and click "Add To Cart"

The French Horn was developed around 1650 in France and is a larger version of the small crescent-shaped horns that had been redesigned with circularly coiled tubing. Over the following decades, "hand-stopping" techniques along with additional lengths of tubing "crooks" were necessary for playing in many keys. (Modern players use hand-stopping to affect intonation and tone color.) The invention of valves in the early 19th century revolutionized the French Horn, allowing the player to alter the length of the tubing by the motion of a finger. The modern F horn has 3 valves, circular coils of narrow tubing flaring at the one end to a wide bell, and a funnel-shaped mouthpiece that accounts for the horn's soft, mellow tone.

Our Andreas Eastman Double French Horns provide great flexibility in all registers, accurate intonation and comfort in your hands. The rotors used in our Eastman Double Horns are hand-lapped yellow brass tapered valves that assure long life, accurate intonation and a tight fit with smooth reliable action. The bell has a medium large throat and is constructed from hand-spun yellow brass with a wire rim and torch annealed bell tail. Mechanical features include a .468" bore size, 12.4" bell diameter & kruspe wrap.
