Paxman 95.3 triple horn

In 1978, Paxman built the first of a new model which was to be designated the model 100. It was a compensating triple horn in F/Bb/Bb soprano, with various options including a stopping valve on the Bb horn and an ascending 3rd valve. Over the following eighteen years, a total of 34 of these instruments were built for players including Baumann, Clevinger and McWilliam.

In 2016, we had a request from a customer in the US for the same combination triple horn (F/Bb/Bb soprano), but as a full triple, rather than the compensating triple model 100. After much deliberation and thought about what was and wasn’t possible with our current valve sections, we agreed with one of our US dealers, Wichita Band Instrument Co, that we would build and supply them with a new model designated the model 95.3. This horn features a compact, triple bore valve section and this particular horn has a large bore nickel silver bell. Below are two photos of the horn as it developed on the workbench of John Turner and above shows its finished state before being shipped off to the US.
