Introducing the Verus KX. This Knopf wrap is the definitive picture of elegance, ergonomics and functional simplicity. The bell flare is handcrafted by German master bell-maker Bernd Sandner. This spun Sandner flare is acoustically matched to the exact weight, shape, and size of each of the other components. Finally, a proprietary lead pipe was designed in-house by Houghton Horns’ head craftsman, Dennis Houghton. The exact taper and characteristics of this pipe were created specifically for the KX.
