JP261D RATH Bb/F French Horn

The JP261D RATH Bb/F French Horn is a variant of the JP261 RATH with the addition of a detachable bell. This enables the instrument to be more portable and packs away into a smaller case. With an extensive phase of research and development, the quality of sound produced by the JP261D RATH isn't compromised and is still at the high level that one would expect from a JP Rath instrument. Michael Rath is highly regarded for his trombone designs, but what is less well known is that he spent ten years working with Paxman’s making French Horns. Rath instruments are renowned for the build quality and high level of finish on their instruments and the JP261D RATH is no different. Featuring an exclusively designed Rath leadpipe, the JP261D RATH incorporates many other sophisticated Rath design elements and draws on Michael's collective experience at Paxman and at Rath creating custom instruments for some of the world's more demanding players. The JP261D RATH has been well received within the industry and has received many positive reviews from players at a variety of levels. Rob Harris, 3rd Horn in Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra complimented the instrument saying "I have great pleasure in recommending the JP261D Rath double Bb/F French horn as a fantastic instrument for the intermediate level horn player (grade 4-7). It is a remarkably free blowing instrument & the example I played had an excellent top register."

The JP261D RATH features the same level of specification as the JP261RATH but with the addition of a detachable bell and more compact case. The instrument is constructed from high grade 80:20 brass throughout and includes an exclusive Rath designed leadpipe. As you would expect from an instrument at this level, the JP261D RATH includes neoprene valve bumpers, a mechanical (ball & socket) linkage and bell ring. The JP261D RATH also includes an adjustable and reversible Bb/F lever for those who prefer the horn to stand in Bb rather than F.

    "I have great pleasure in recommending the JP261DRath double Bb/F French horn as a fantastic instrument for the intermediate level horn player (grade 4-7). It is a remarkably free blowing instrument & the example I played had an excellent top register. It has mechanical valves, so no strings to repair, and is robustly manufactured. The detachable bell model comes with a very user friendly 'back pack' case all at an extremely competitive price. Perfect for taking to school or youth orchestra. Definitely worth thinking about if you are looking for a first double horn."
