The Tenor Horn (also known as the alto horn) is a popular brass instrument most commonly played in Brass Bands.
The tenor horn sits in the middle of the band. There are usually three of them and they can play solos / the tune, or accompaniment. It's the highest pitched instrument in the band that is played upright; they're designed like this so that the sound can blend before reaching the audience, a quality that is especially useful for accompaniment playing.
All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. It’s hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the ‘wants’ of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.
Featuring a gorgeous, gleaming silver plated brass body, offset with polished brass gold lacquered valve caps, water keys and tuning slide ends, the exquisite Odyssey Premiere 'Eb' Tenor Horn is luxurious in every detail, within sculpted design, masterful technology and performs as graceful as it looks.
With its generous 8"/203mm diameter bell the Odyssey Premiere 'Eb' Tenor Horn is ideally suited as one of the principal instruments within brass bands and military bands, offering superb projection, sonic flexibility and agility.
The Odyssey Premiere 'Eb' Tenor Horn is a popular choice with solo players.
Luxurious appointments also include a Denis Wick mouthpiece, regarded by musicians as arguably the worlds finest, hand-built to an extremely high standard, with meticulous attention paid to the mouthpiece rim for comfort and consistency.
