The Nuvo jHorn has arrived! This revolutionary brass style instrument is suitable for all ages and abilities, right at home in primary classrooms whilst also a fun practice instrument for adult players.
Nuvo specialises in producing instruments which have the musical authenticity to make them suitable for learning combined with the look and instant aesthetic appeal which quite literally stops you in your tracks to find out more. In keeping with the Nuvo philosophy, the jHorn serves as an introduction to the world of brass playing whilst overcoming the technical and physical difficulties younger and smaller musicians face when looking to start on traditional material instruments.
Brass instrument fingerings are transferable, so the skills learned on the jHorn can be ported anywhere in the brass family. The jHorn occupies the same register as baritone horn, euphonium or trombone.
Supplied in Bb, the jHorn also comes with a set of C tubes which bring the instrument up to concert pitch alongside the rest of the Nuvo family. The jHorn joins the ranks of jSax, jFlute and Clarineo to form the basis of the 2nd phase of the Nuvo WindStars classroom curriculum – for more information please visit www.nuvo-windstars.com.
Made from durable ABS resin with Nuvo’s patented rotary face valves, the jHorn weighs just 0.7kg and measures 36cm x 30cm. As with all Nuvo instruments, it is completely waterproof which makes it very easy to keep clean – a quick dip in the washing up bowl or even the bath and it’s good to go again. You could even play outside in the rain!
The mouthpiece is supplied with a selection of silicone cups. This multi-cup set up replicates a range of brass mouthpiece profiles by altering the diameter, rim width and depth of the cups. You can also try using trumpet, cornet or tenor horn mouth pieces.
