18-HHG10L1A-1-0, HANS HOYER FRENCH HORN, G10 GEYER STYLE , CLEAR LACQUER, DETACHABLE BELL, Bb/F
The Hans Hoyer model G10 is styled after the original instruments by Carl Geyer, who immigrated to the United States in 1903. The well balanced design is very similar to the originals of the 1950’s with rich tone colours and similar resistance. Careful attention was given to the positioning of the braces as well as on the ergonomic arrangement of the valve and thumb levers.
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.
