F/Bb- full double horn, model “Reißmann”


The model W 293 is a real best seller of Ricco Kühn horns. In our opinion this traditional Reißmann model is the most beautiful one in relation to the design. This is also coursed by the F extension without those tied bows and by the corpus which is maybe the most similar double horn to the natural horn.


All in all this horn was improved continuously and corresponds to the current state of knowledge. It is especially convincing with it’s continuously response over the complete range and its beautiful sound from piano to fortissimo with perfect articulation.

The small switch valve has complete air passing and enables smooth bindings without disturbing noises when switching between Bb and F.
