The French horn is one of the more well-known brass instruments; if not for its sound, then for its distinct shape and history. Interestingly enough, though called the French horn, the design for the instrument we generally see today was originally crafted in Germany. Regardless of its origin, these horns play an important role within brass bands and orchestras. There are a variety of French horn options available, so you’ll be able to find the one that is perfect for you. The most important thing to be aware of when looking for a French horn is the skill level of the musician who will be playing it. In general, these horns can be broken up into two categories: single horns and double horns. Single horns come in one of two keys (F and Bb) and include three rotary valves, while double horns are able to shift between keys and use a fourth rotary valve. More rare, but gaining a following, is the triple horn, which is similar to the double, but also provides easier access to the horns upper range. A single horn is generally ideal for younger and/or novice players, while the double and triple horns are better for bigger and more experienced players. It’s also worth noting that most horn players will eventually move on from single to double or triple horns, so that may also factor into your decision. Next, you’ll want to know where the horn will be used primarily. The French horn’s standard shape can make it difficult to play while standing, which is why there are certain horns specifically designed for use in marching bands. Horns such as the M551 Series Marching Bb French Horn from Dynasty or the YHR-302M Series Marching Bb French Horn from Yamaha feature a forward facing design and different valve system that retains much of the standard horn’s timbre. If the plan is to play in the marching band, you’ll definitely want to consider one of these horns. The French horn is an incredibly complex instrument that, like all instruments, requires care and practice. By taking the time to do better understand what it is you’re looking for, you’ll have a French horn that will provide you, your group, and your family beautiful music for years to come.
