  1. The Paxman 83 triple horn design is Paxmanís response to separate requests from two of Londonís top players. The requests were for a compensating double horn with a single story change valve. While designing this, we realised that we could incorporate this feature successfully into a new and more compact triple horn.

    The single change valve has enabled us to design a very free-blowing horn with a very long leadpipe, and to include a stopping valve on the Bb horn as standard, whilst retaining our unique dual mouthpipe system.

    The instrument is very compact for a triple horn as well as being more aesthetically pleasing. It is designed to operate standing in Bb as this is the most efficient way of operating three thumb levers, although it can be made to play standing in F on request.

    Available online to UK customers only.
