The Hans Hoyer 801 is an excellent German made instrument played by professionals and the advancing student alike. The 801 is in the Geyer style of French Horns and this model takes design cues from some of the original Carl Geyer horns. The well balanced design is very similar to the originals of the 1950’s with rich tone colors and similar resistance. Careful attention was given to the positioning of the braces as well as on the ergonomic arrangement of the valve and thumb levers.
As it has been built for decades, the Hans Hoyer model 801 continues to be the mainstay of the Hans Hoyer range. Through high-quality design, the model is suitable for beginners yet ideal for the aspiring professional. The 801 Geyer-style is available in both a fixed bell (801) and a screw bell (801A) model.
