Lowell Greer High Bb Descant Horn w Bb Extension #56

Available

$900.00

*This instrument is part of Lowell Greer’s Collection and not located at Hampson Horns. Please allow ample time for instrument to be shipped.*

A unique Lowell Greer creation!

High Bb soprano descant horn with low Bb thumb valve, made from parts of different instruments. Bell is from a Boosey instrument, possibly from a ballad horn. Lowell was trying to make a “corno da caccia” which is a modern 3 or 4 valve high Bb instrument meant for the high baroque and classical repertoire.

This instrument plays very high to A=440, almost in B. Being sold as more of a unique Lowell creation than a functioning instrument, although one could get it fixed up with a new leadpipe to play at A=440.

*All sales are final for items in Lowell Greer’s Collection. No returns accepted. Thank you for understanding.*
