18-HH6801G-1-0, HANS HOYER 6801 FRENCH HORN, HERITAGE SERIES, CLEAR LACQUER, GOLD BRASS, Bb/F
The Hans Hoya 6801 Heritage Series French Horns are for the advancing students and professionals who are looking for the large ‘studio’ sound, without compromising control. Made in Germany, the 6801 Heritage series were designed in close cooperation with some of the most influential and renowned artists in the world. The design of the ‘Kruspe Style’ French Horn dates back to 1897. But new innovations and improvements have made the instrument better all the time.
This instrument comes with the new trademarked 3B linkage system. 3B stands for “Bronze Ball Bearing”. Two steel balls are held within a bronze ball bearing for each valve. This optimises the transmission: one ball connects the valve action rod to the bottom of the lever, while the other one is connected to the stop arm. Additionally to this perfect gliding mechanism of steel and bronze, a spring on the connector to the valve action rod keeps the linkage in an optimal position to guarantee a perfectly smooth movement.
