Design, Playability, and Aesthetics

The new Verus Model V horns are capturing the attention of players everywhere. These professional model instruments feature a modified Knopf-style wrap that is inspired by a contemporary German design. This free-flowing layout with centralized main and F tuning slides yields optimal balance, both aesthetically and acoustically. The horns produce a rich, buttery sound with European flair, and they offer incredible value at their current price point. 

Protection and Assurance

Every Verus V/VG is sold with its own flight case. This durable luxury case is guaranteed to fit the body of the instrument precisely, while providing excellent protection. Features include ample music pouch, mouthpiece and accessory storage, backpack straps and shoulder strap, ABS plastic interior shell with ballistic nylon cover and soft foam interior. 

Houghton Horns stands behind all Verus model horns by including a five-year limited mechanical warranty, allowing you to invest with peace-of-mind. 


The V is made in yellow brass with a corrosion-resistant nickel silver leadpipe, which gives maximum life and complexity to its sound. Its unlacquered finish will develop a natural patina over time.


The VG is made in gold brass with a corrosion-resistant gold brass leadpipe, giving it a dark,  mellow sound. A lacquered finish will keep it looking brand new for years.
