The Capri 561 Double F/Bb French Horn is another masterful instrument in the Getzen line of fine brass instruments. The craftsmanship of this instrument is unbeatable. The 561 is made in Germany to Getzen's exacting specifications. The Geyer style wrap and medium bell throat makes this a free blowing horn, great for students moving up from their beginner instruments. The mechanical linkages and oil ports in the bearing plates make this horn extremely easy to maintain. The mouthpipe is constructed of gold brass, which will eliminate de-zincification and prolong the life of the instrument. Two interesting features also found on this horn are the adjustable finger hook to custom fit any hand and the open first Bb slide. These two options are usually found on more expensive instruments.
The Getzen Capri 561 comes complete with Pro-Tec case, slide lubricant, polishing cloth, and mouthpiece.
