Corno da Caccia in Bb/A
There is nearly no recent brass instrument, which is being more discussed with regard to tonal requirements than the Corno da Caccia.
Certainly various opinions are solid related to a particular era of the historic Corno or the desired usage in todays music.
The new model C 311 allows to serve nearly all sound styles if blown with according leadpipe and mouthpiece.
It can be blown very soft and horn-like with the standard leadpipe and a flugelhorn mouthpiece but also like a historic Corno when a different leadpipe and a trumpet mouthpiece are being used. In addition to model C 311 other variants are available.
If equipped with an A crook the C 311 can be played in A tuning.
