The wrap is based on a Geyer-style, which makes it a particularly free-blowing horn. The left hand position is adjustable by means of a movable thumb lever, to make it suitable for the younger player or adult.

Description

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.
