VERUS: (Latin) True; truthful; genuine; actual; real; just.

The new Verus Model V is capturing the attention of horn players everywhere. This professional model instrument features a modified Knopf-style wrap that is inspired by contemporary German design. This free-flowing layout with centralized main and F tuning slides yields optimal balance, both aesthetically and acoustically. The horn produces a rich, buttery sound with European flair, and it offers incredible value at its current price point.

Model Variants

In order to better suit a variety of players, the Verus Model V is available in two variants: V and VG. The V is made in yellow brass with a corrosion-resistant nickel silver leadpipe, which gives maximum life and complexity to its sound. Its unlacquered finish will develop a natural patina over time.

Choice, Protection and Assurance

Every Verus V/VG is sold with its own flight case. This durable luxury case is guaranteed to fit the body of the instrument precisely, while providing excellent protection. Features include an ample music pouch, mouthpiece and accessory storage, backpack straps and shoulder strap, and an ABS plastic interior shell with ballistic nylon cover and soft foam interior. Houghton Horns stands behind all Verus model horns by including a five-year limited mechanical warranty, allowing you to invest with peace of mind.

  1. David Wick

    The horn has all the features one would expect with a custom horn costing much more. Workmanship is first rate and completely dispels the typical “made in China” reputation.
    I’ve played it a couple of hours and am amazed how well this instrument plays – it compares favorably with my Yamaha 871, and Rauch No. 308 I played for many years.

    And yes, it will still require practicing!
