F/Bb- double horn, compensating version
Unfortunately, compensation horns almost disappeared from the market completely.
But very interesting is the fact that the model W 253 is based on the well-known Kruspe "Wendler" model which was also built in a similar version by Reissmann/ Börner.
The current W 253 has the same corpus as the model 293 and is as usable as a regular double horn. With a lot of development effort we optimized especially the difficult F part.
All in all the W 253 is a very interesting horn for musicians who do not need a full double horn. And its advantages are clear: It is lighter, has a fantastic Bb part and nearly the same low range as a full double horn.
