The JP261D Rath Bb/F French Horn features a detachable bell. This enables the instrument to be more portable and packs away into a smaller case. Michael Rath is highly regarded for his trombone designs, but what is less well known is that he spent ten years working with Paxman’s making French Horns. Rath instruments are renowned for the build quality and high level of finish on their instruments and the JP261D Rath is no different.
Featuring an exclusively designed Rath leadpipe, the JP261D Rath incorporates many other sophisticated Rath design elements and draws on Michael's collective experience at Paxman and at Rath creating custom instruments for some of the world's more demanding players. The JP261D Rath has been well received within the industry and has received many positive reviews from players at a variety of levels.
