This instrument, especially its bell, is modelled on a horn from a private collection (engraving: Franz Weckert – Prague). The design of the instrument is identical to that of the 511 model, with the exception of the 11.7 mm bore inspired by the 110 model. This instrument is made using authentic technologies, with lead-bent, hand-hammered parts in order to satisfy contemporary players' requirements for tone and intonation.
This horn was designed for the basic modern pitch of 440 Hz; however a set of slides allows for authentic interpretation of early music with a pitch of 430 and 415 Hz. The 280 mm (11.024”) diameter bell can be provided with or without a bell garland. Pitched in C-alto, Bb, A, G, F, E, Eb, D, C-basso, with a Bb adaptor, or accessory for C-basso. Gradually, our offer will be extended by separate crooks for 430 Hz, Es, and D.
The French bell allows for easier and more precise hand-stopping. The 510 natural horn is highly appreciated by players for its authentic sound, which fits perfectly into historical instrument ensembles.
The 510 model has become popular among modern orchestra players as it perfectly complements their habitual way of playing. The ease of tone creation makes the natural horn the preferred choice for practising, as compared to the modern double horn. Practising the natural horn gives the player new impulses, enables them to see their playing from a different perspective and expands the range of playing, enhancing their mastery of modern instruments.
