French horn cups are combined with a relatively light blank to maintain the necessary tone.

Those for saxhorn have a slightly heavier blank to obtain a certain core of sound.

Good to know

The saxhorn is called “ALTO HORN” in the USA (Bach / Yamaha), “TENOR HORN” in the Anglo-Saxon countries (Alliance / Denis Wick), “ALTHORN” or “Eb Horn” in Germany.
It is called “Pichotte” in France.
We will use the term “Saxhorn” to avoid confusion.
