Clarity and mechanics

Articulations are clear and easy, and the small, efficient change-valve allows for liquid-smooth transitions between the F and Bb horn. 

What we think...
"Ricco Kühn horns have always been some of my favorites. They are easy to play with an open and clear sound. The W293 takes it up a notch by adding a bit more color and core. Overall this horn would be an excellent choice for a professional player who wishes to have an instrument that won't be overly taxing during long sessions."

-Dr. Derek J. Wright
