What makes Atkinson-Geyer´s play better than the others? Crisp articulation with punctuated staccatos and the sound is unique from bright to dark in color with an ergonomic design for improved response giving you that special edge needed to succeed. Polished to jewelry standard excellence. Presenting this model in traditional Geyer style bell or new European and Cantata bells. Many people ask what is the difference in these 3 bells. Here is a brief explanation.
Traditional Bell: Produces a clear singing quality of sound which is somewhat brighter with great staccatos and smooth legatos. Superb for orchestra and a marvelous solo Horn.
European Bell: A slightly darker sound quality with more lows in the overtones creating a stronger bottom to the sound and the steps between notes are wider consequently this instrument is preferred by those who are coming off of big belled Horns.
Cantata bell: For players who prefer the darker sound with great high register and an easily hand stopped bell with a penetrating center. ALL of our fabulous Geyer Horns have incredible registers and a rich beautiful sound that will not only please you the player but give that WOW factor needed in today´s competitive symphonic auditions.
