  1. The Alexander Model 503 has been chosen twice as the winner of the German Musical Instrument Awards (1995 & 2005). With its change valve at a 90 degree angle, this horn featured reduced interference when changing sides.

    The 503 has many features and build qualities found in its older brother, the 1103. With a simpler minibal construction for the lever action, the 503 provides a more economical alternative whilst still providing the traditional Alexander sound.

    Each Alex 503 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 503 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.
