Model S English horn

The Fossati S English horn has a bore with a small cone. Its bell has a pronounced pear shape. The tone holes have a very small diameter with a bell shaped under cut. The combination of these factors gives the Fossati S English horn a greater range of sound. The homogeneous timbre and the stable intonation give the Fossati S English horn a supple, present sound.
