The Frunting Horn has finally arrived. What a long wait! Just about two years, I reckon. Anyway, it’s lovely. Nice and light, quite horn-like in its sound but not in its articulation, which is smoother and more vocal thanks to piston, rather than rotary valves.
Actually if feels more like a low cornet than a horn. Interestingly, the top C (concert F) only works when you play it loud. When quiet the note isn’t really there. Bummer. However, I might be able to fix that by putting a false hand or something like that in the bell.
It might look stupid but it may be worth it.
Hell, what am I saying? It will look stupid! I’d better not go too high on it.
