Bb/F Compensating Horn from Paxman.

  • Bb/F compensating horn from Paxman.
  • Excellent student horn from prestige British maker.
  • Lighter than the full double horn.
  • Perfect for the progressing student.

We think:

A compensating french horn is the perfect compromise for a younger student whose progress requires a Bb and F horn but who may struggle with the bulk and weight of a full double instrument. The fourth rotor switches the instrument between Bb and F, enabling the instrument to span a greater pitch range and the student to learn the various fingering combinations facilitated by a two-sided horn.

The Paxman is our best-selling compensating instrument (sometimes known as a half-double) due to its quality construction, good intonation and well respected name.

Product Information:

  • Bb/F compensating horn.
  • 4 quality rotor valves.
  • Nickel silver outer slides.
  • Lacquer finish.
  • Supplied with quality case and mouthpiece.
