The Cantesanu Horns shop offers custom main tuning slides for Schmid Double and Triple horns. The slides are handcrafted with the same style and quality as the Model C custom horn.
Both Bb and F slides feature a single radius crook and are completely made out of brass. The design provides simplicity, less weight, improved air flow and better response compared to the original components.
Using the custom slides the sound becomes richer and warmer. Top professional musicians found them to have an even bigger impact on the sound than using a different bell.
Horn players from orchestras like The Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, National Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Cincinnati Symphony, Dallas Symphony, Vancouver Symphony and other professional hornists are enjoying the benefits of using these custom slides.
Each slide is hand-made in the Cantesanu Horns shop after an order has been received and usually ships within 1-2 business days. We recommend using the custom Bb and F slides as a pair for even playability throughout all registers.
