The new triple horn design is Paxman’s response to separate requests from two of London’s top players. The requests were for a compensating double horn with a single storey change valve. While designing this, we realised that we could incorporate this feature successfully into a new and more compact triple horn.

The single change valve has enabled us to design a very free-blowing horn with a very long leadpipe, and to include a stopping valve on the Bb horn as standard, whilst retaining our unique dual mouthpipe system.

The instrument is very compact for a triple horn as well as being more aesthetically pleasing. It is designed to operate standing in Bb as this is the most efficient way of operating three thumb levers, athough it can be made to play standing in F on request.
