We are excited to announce that we will be adding 2 new brands to our new horn line up. 

Ed. Kruspe, Germany

From the Kruspe website: In 1897 the first "true" double horn with dual level valves was designed and built. The Kruspe company patented the invention in its own name on October 05th 1897.Later, minor technical improvements were made to this model, particularly by Professor Wendler. Nothing was changed in terms of the basic design. It is still made today under the name: compensating doublehorn; model: "Professor Wendler".

In 1904, in close cooperation with the well-known horn player Anton Horner, Philadelphia, a double horn with separate F and Bb horn was developed and built. This "Horner"- model is also still in production today. Horn players in orchestras enjoy playing it.

Besides "Wendler" and "Horner" models, the firm produces further instruments, ranging from the simple three valves Bb frenchhorn to the large five valves doublehorn, all with the proven Kruspe quality.

Further instruments will be developed.

Now under new ownership, Ed. Kruspe horns look to reintroduce their historically relevant instruments with the addition of newer models being developed. We currently have the Anton Horner model in nickel silver, and their new model HR-24 in stock for trials and purchase. The horns will be on display at the IHS LA 2015 as well.

Andreas Jungwirth, Austria

In 1987, Andreas engaged in the reproduction of historical brass instruments. The first baroque trumpets were supplemented by natural horns, and soon also by Vienna horns. During which time he balanced teaching with his handwork skills. After several relocations the workshop was eventually located in the Waldviertel, a region northwest of Vienna. The vicinity to Vienna, and yet the privacy of a small village (Freischling) has proven ideal for his business. All current employees have been trained by Andreas himself in the production shop. Special to note is the new double horn with Vienna style tapers, traditional bell manufacture, and unique diamond shaped valve design. Soon to come is a triple horn (fall 2015) and further development will be announced.

We (Siegfried's Call) will have the new double horn on display at the IHS LA 2015. Please stop by our table and have a look.
