This distinctively wrapped brass instrument is found in concert bands and orchestras and is usually a Bb/F Double French Horn.
French Horns are popular with students and are available in a wide range of configurations. Many teachers are still divided on which model is ‘best’ for first time players. Whilst a Double French Horn is best, its physical size usually makes them difficult for younger players. As a result, smaller size single Bb and single F instruments are widely available. It is therefore very important to seek advice from your teacher before buying your first French Horn.
