The triple horn, a special masterpiece amongst the Dieter Otto models, has separate lead pipes and first branches on the B flat/low F and high F sides that combine all of the advantages of a double horn with a full sounding high F side. This particular horn has been professionally played in the National Symphony. Unlike many triples it has a very full and open sounding low register. The horn is also well-balanced leading to a comfortable feel in the hands. It’s a great horn for any player looking for the horn that can do it all!

*Raw brass, polished brass, and unlacquered instruments and mouthpieces will tarnish quickly and may not arrive with a flawless finish. This is a natural property of raw brass, which will develop a rich golden-brown patina over time.

:warning: California residents: See Prop 65 warning.
All brass instruments and brass instrument mouthpieces may contain lead, which is known to cause cancer and reproductive harm. –
