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: 

This descant has a beautiful tone! It is fairly easy to play and responds well in all registers. Descant are not usually made with Nickel-Silver, so this is a unique find! This horn comes with an F attachment and has an extra large bell.

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.
