Baroque hoorn
After a triple wound instrument by Johann Wilhelm Haas, Nuremberg (1725).
The original is in possession of the Germanisches National Museum in Nuremberg.
By replacing one turn by different crooks, without changing the typically baroque "mensur",
the instrument is suitable to play in G, F, E, E-flat, D and C.
Pitched in a=420 Hz for using the "Stopf-technik", or 415 Hz for open use.
Because of the lack of a tuning slide, tuning bits are available.
