Working together with Sheona White, we analyzed and re-evaluated every part and component to create an instrument that delivers richer resonance and more expressive depth. It produces a graceful tone that enhances the alto horn’s presence while delivering the tone color, volume, resistance, and accurate pitch that brass band performers and soloists demand in an instrument.
The two-piece yellow brass bell features a larger diameter to deliver a wider dynamic range.
The first branch features a new design that offers improved pitch and greater tone color. The main tuning slide is designed with a new taper and wider bow that produces greater tone color, a freer feel, more accurate pitch, and greater dynamic range.
A new, heavier valve casing design produces a richer, more authoritative tone.
The mouthpiece receiver and brace design produces a moderate amount of resistance and thicker sound when playing, delivering greater projection and expressiveness.
Hard case AHC-803 with strap.
