Double F/Bb horn with 11.9" removable bell, lacquered brass body, rose brass leadpipe, 4 mechanical-link tapered rotary valves, Geyer wrap, .472 bore, and a wood-frame case (Kc-66). This double horn possesses the tonal color and transparency that is expected of a professional instrument. Its volume and resonance are its most astounding attributes, both of which contribute to its playability and enjoyability. Handsome and impeccably constructed, the 1100 will be a treasured companion forever.
The Hoyer 6800 series horns endeavor to emulate the now legendary Kruspe sound but with the added benefot of more modern manufacturing and consistency. The owner of Hans Hoyer, Gerhard Meinl, set out to make this Kruspe copy by working closely with regarded professionals including Myron Bloom and Vince DeRosa who play in the Krupse horn style. The result is a very well made horn that to many is a truer copy of the original Kruspe than even the best Conn 8Ds.
