Descant horns - Design for the discerning.
The inspiration for this instrument came from Richard Todd, principal horn of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and Professor at the University of Miami. Richard Todd paid special attention to the L.A. specific horn sound, originally established by his teacher, Vincent De Rosa.
The horn is quite versatile and serves Richard Todd well in both his classical, studio, and jazz performances. The horn is made of very thin brass, which ensures quick response and accuracy. The bell is a single-seamed bell in German size. The horn is available in yellow or gold brass, with either string (RT92) or 3B mechanical linkage (RT91).
