Description

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

A first glimpse reveals a traditional Geyer-style horn with a compact wrap, combining crisp, even response with a secure resistance. Nickel silver leadpipe, slide tubes, and ferrules come standard. Long solder joints and an attached Bb return loop provide unmistakable life and resonance. The positioning and location of the braces was thoughtfully determined over a period of several months. Elite players tested the Verus Model VII ‘Custom’ under a variety of conditions in order to refine the instrument’s overall performance and ensure optimal balance and ergonomic feel. Satin-finished engraved valve caps and brushed nickel levers complete the elegant Art Deco-inspired look.

Our Vision

The Verus Model VII ‘Custom’ is the result of an extensive research and design effort undertaken by Houghton Horns, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. This horn is the culmination of over thirty years of passion and expertise.

The goal? Design a factory-produced, professional-level instrument with features of today’s most successful premium horns at an accessible price point. There’s never been a horn quite like this one.

The Sound

The Verus Model VII ‘Custom’ produces a richly-colored, complex tonal spectrum. Its voice is versatile, malleable, and marketable. The instrument is equally at home in small chamber ensembles as it is in massive orchestras — and everywhere in between. This horn is your ally in the pit, onstage or behind the screen; it only awaits your signature touch.

Choice and Assurance 

A Protec IPAC compact case is also included with your Verus horn purchase.

Houghton Horns stands behind all Verus model horns by including a five-year limited mechanical warranty, allowing you to invest with peace of mind.
