Get Inspired By Tradition With The Paxman Model 27MYDC French Horn

The Model 27MYDC is the result of Paxman being frequently asked if they would design and build a Paxman horn in the style of a traditional Geyer/Knopf wrap instruments. The result is the model 27, which is a true Geyer/Knopf wrapped horn, an instrument which retains many Paxman characteristics whilst satisfying the needs of those looking to play this style of horn.

After much experimentation and testing, both in the Paxman workshop and in the 'real world' of professional orchestras, a combination of a custom made mouthpipe and either of the ever popular M or ML bells was found to be the most suitable for this horn. This gives it an open feel, whilst retaining a warmth to the sound that does not break up, even at fortissimo levels. The compact valve section and resulting fast valve action make this model feel precise and centered, whilst retaining the free blowing aspects of the wrap that make it so popular.

The bells are the standard Paxman bells with the same bend and hoop size, keeping the model 27 compact in the hand, well balanced and smaller than many other Geyer style horns. All of the cylindrical tubing is the traditional 12mm Paxman diameter, with the rotor ports slightly enlarged to make for smoother slurring and ease of change between the F and Bb sides of the horn.

Whilst the model 27 represents a change from the traditional Paxman double horn, it retains the characteristic warmth and power of our other instruments. We have developed this horn in order to offer players who would not have previously considered Paxman the chance to play the wrap of their choice and to experience the many benefits of playing Paxman horns.
