Paxman is proud to introduce the Model 27, their first full Geyer wrap horn. With its open layout, this horn features many qualities associated with Geyer horns, whilst maintaining the characteristics associated with the Paxman range. These include a full rich sound with excellent stability and resonance in the middle and upper registers, whilst providing the player with a well centered and strong low register.

Featuring Paxman’s new compact 2016 valve system as standard, the 27 features quick and nimble lever action and increased articulation. At the same time, the player benefits from significant weight reduction.

Paxman was established at the turn of the century by Harry Paxman, but did not start production of horns until 1945, when no more than twelve instruments a year were made. 1950 saw the arrival in England of Richard Merewether, a professional horn player who had been working on ideas of horn design for a number of years and had researched areas of physics which he thought to be fundamental to the successful design and manufacture of such instruments. Merewether approached Robert Paxman with these ideas, and the resulting instruments were so successful that Merewether and Paxman continued their association and went on to develop a range of over 50 models. Fifty years of research and development have produced the instruments that put Paxman at the forefront of horn manufacture. Instruments that are much sought after by players world-wide. Paxman Limited do not take their position as one of the world’s leading horn makers lightly, and are constantly making great efforts to maintain their innovative role. Players’ comments and opinions are actively sought, and there is continuous research and incorporation of advantageous modifications. Special requests are always undertaken where technically possible.
