180KAL-JN-Munich Model Double French Horn (lacquered)

Designer: Dieter Otto


Add a note to encourage purchase

The newest model in the 2016 Dieter Otto French Horn line up is the Model 180KAL-JN-Munich. The Jeff Nelsen model has been a rock solid top performing instrument for many, and with the addition of the Munich model, we believe the change in feel for some will be very positive. The larger main valves offer a different feel with an open blow and super response. The depth of sound differs from the original JN model, and some may find this favorable.
