Introducing the new WX double horns by Ricco Kuhn.
Why tamper with success? Ricco took this foundation and, through further testing and development, single horn in bb slight changes while leaving the general proportions between the bell and mouthpipe unchanged.
This design has proven to be quite successful from the single Bb horns - through the double horns. Kuhn horns have been made to the highest manufacturing and playing standards. With a fluidity throughout all registers and a big noble sound from the softest pianissimos to the loudest fortes horn players have been extremely eager to play these horns.
While creating the new triple horn it became clear that the tapered parts needed to be recalculated - particularly the leadpipe and the bell. How are the X series different than single horn in bb standard, models? The change valve has been moved so that it is at a ninety degree angle from the 3rd valve.
This also allows the valve section to be moved farther away from the hands a typical problem with Geyer or Knopf wrap horns is that the valves are too close to the hands.
