The main advantage of the Alexander 102 compensating double horn is the reduced weight. As the Bb horn is extended by the length of the F horn, less material is used for this model. Due to the special design of the horn, it is often supposed to have a high resistance which might be an advantage.
The 102 compensating double horn is also available with an additional stopping valve. By using the K-model construction, both models develop an almost full horn-sound on the f-horn as well.
Each Alex 102 horn includes a complimentary care package which contains an Alexander mouthpiece, a set of oils, cloth, pencil, hand guard and pencil holder. Alexander horn cases are also available and sold separately.
Custom 102 French horn models are available from Alexander at special request. If you wish for a particular option that isn't visible on our online store, please contact us at Paxmans for more information. Please note there will be several months build time on special orders.
Paxman Musical Instruments Limited give a two year warranty on the Alexander 102. This does not cover accidental damage or lacquer wear.
In addition to the provisions of UK Consumer Protection legislation we offer a 30 day money back guarantee.
