The 871DU uses a traditional Geyer-style wrap with a medium-size bell and thicker rim wire. A new gold brass leadpipe design contributes to consistent tone and playing feel throughout the instrument’s range. This model features a .476″ bore size that maximizes its performance potential. The inner tubes of all slides are made of gold brass to enhance the horn’s tonal clarity and depth and the main tuning slide also has a rounded shape that provides ideal resistance for this class of instrument. The valve casing is made of nickel silver for improved response and durability while a hollow 4th rotor makes notable contributions to response and tone. Engraved brass valve caps and a nickel silver bell screw enhance response, providing cleaner articulation and a well defined core.
