Each consignment horn that we sell is thoroughly tested by our staff to ensure that you are receiving a quality product. These are the thoughts that were shared by our staff:
Descant horns are typically built as double horns that stand in Bb with an F alto side that is shorter than the F side of a standard double horn. They are ideal for playing high, light literature.
This horn was used by James Thatcher on one cue of James Horner's score to the blockbuster film, "Titanic". It has a beautiful sound that can blend well in both small ensembles and large ensembles. The horn has great compression and plays very well. We do have a signed document from James Thatcher detailing some of the history of the horn.
