French Horns

French horns were developed in the early 1800s and have been for a long time a crucial part of orchestral and concert bands. Not initially used in jazz, the French horn has however taken up some prominent positions in the history of that form of music too, most notably with there being a French hornist in the pioneering nine-piece cool jazz band led by Miles Davis.

Tenor Horns

Tenor horns were created in the 1840s by the Belgian instrument creator Adolphe Sax, whose other designs included, unsurprisingly, our old friend the saxophone. The way that the instrument has developed, it is now larger than the original as set out in Sax’s specifications. No matter the slight shifts in the form though, the tenor horn has found its home for many years in the British brass band. This is its main residence, while it takes brief forays into the world of concert bands.
