Kuhlohorn

With our kuhlohorn, we honor the past while creating something new. The instrument is inspired by old designs from Johannes Kuhlo’s times, but has some modern touches, such as a trigger as standard equipment and the option to add a fourth valve and a flipper for better handling. After meticulous development work, we are now able to provide state-of-the-art intonation, and the exchangeable leadpipes mean that the horn can be tailored to your personal taste.
