Synonymous with Brass Bands, tenor horns are pitched in Eb and have a conical bore.
Tenor horns are usually only found within brass bands and look very similar to a baritone hone, albeit slightly smaller. All tenor horns are similar in structure with tubing following a similar pattern. The key differences between student models versus much more expensive ones tend to be found in the quality of materials used (yellow brass or high grade 80:20), the standard of components or the leadpipe design.
JP Sterling models such as the JP372 Sterling Tenor Horn are the result of a special collaboration with Paul Riggett of Sterling Musical Instruments and feature exclusive Sterling components such as a unique leadpipe. These collaboration instruments offer an unrivalled performance for their price.

The best practice mutes
Whatever standard you are, a practice mute is an essential accessory for all brass musicians. The aim of a practice mute is to silence the instrument as much as possible whilst also maintaining accurate pitch and resistance. Ideally, you want it to feel as natural as possible because it is a practising tool. However it will create a little resistance.
