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 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.
