Accessories & Extras
Alexander-Instruments are supplied with extensive accessories included. Numerous optional extras are additionally available upon request.
All instruments are delivered with a soldered-on nickel silver handguard (except models 88, 93 and 503), a waterkey on the leadpipe (if required, we can leave this off), a standard Alexander mouthpiece and an additional leather handguard. Free materials for the maintenance of your instrument include: Slide grease, bearing & linkage oil, valve oil and a smooth polishing cloth.
With all Alexander double horns you are able to change the position of the change valve from Bb/F to F/Bb or vice versa at any time yourself. With the turn of a screw the thumb lever of the change valve of models 200, 503 and 1103 can be adjusted to fit any size or favorite position of your hand. All French Horns can be equipped with an adjustable finger hook which can be moved into a position where it better fits the little finger of a large or a small hand. Another optional extra to balance the weight is the so-called “Flipper”. It is an easy adjustable handrest that can be “flipped” in or out for transport inside a case. A Flipper transfers some of the weight of the horn to a position between the thumb and pointer finger of the left hand. Several other extras are available upon request to ensure that each instrument meets the individual preferences of the musician.
