A modified Geyer-style intermediate model double French horn in F/Bb.
In 2008, the Paxman Academy full double and compensating double horns were launched. This release was preceded by an intense period of testing and design. The Academy line offers a comprehensive selection of instruments that are both high-quality and competitively priced, spanning the range from beginner to professional models.
This full double horn is the mainstay of the Paxman Academy range, and it has quickly established itself as one of the most popular horns at this level. Responsive and lightweight, the Academy double provides the capacity for fluent technique and a rich, warm tone.
With an adjustable finger hook and thumb lever, the left hand position can be made comfortable for almost any player—no matter the age.
