The JP261 RATH is a full double Bb/F French Horn featuring an exclusively designed Rath leadpipe and Geyer style layout which results in an instrument which has very little resistance and is very freeblowing throughout the whole register. The thumb lever, finger hook and ducks foot can all be adjusted to ensure a comfortable hand position thus making it ideal for players looking for a full double horn.
