Sterling Virtuoso Tenor Horn

Sterling hornSterling Musical Instruments have been manufacturing in the UK since 1987, producing brass instruments specifically aimed at the British style brass band. By employing several Boosey & Hawkes craftsmen, the company was able to rapidly establish itself in the brass band market, producing hand built quality instruments.
The next stage of development was to recognise the growing demand by musicians, that not everyone wanted the standard ‘off the shelf’ instrument. This has resulted in the development of the new ‘Sterling Virtuoso Range’, which allows musicians to design an instrument that best suits their needs and demands.
The founder and sole owner of Sterling, Paul Riggett (himself an accomplished brass musician), was previously Manufacturing Manager for Boosey & Hawkes Ltd before creating Sterling, and as such, he has unequalled experience in the manufacture and design of professional brass instruments.
The Sterling Virtuoso Tenor Horn is a stunning new addition to the Sterling Virtuoso collection of hand-made instruments.
Designed in collaboration with top UK players, the layout of this horn is obviously influenced by traditional British instrument designs, but one of the more significant improvements is the position of the main tuning slide, which means no more accidental bumping of the slide (and also no need to move the slide to put the instrument in the case!)
