This horn was unplayable in its original condition. The mouthpipe receiver was replaced and four mouthpipes were constructed for A and Bb. A third valve rotor assembly was also constructed to add notes needed in the low range. This design is more versatile than the four valve system allowing the player to remove the rotor when not needed for works such as the Brandenburg Concerto No. 2. This modified horn plays to high professional standards.
