The jHorn from Nuvo

Victoria Wasylak • Band & Orchestra • October 4, 2019

The jHorn is the latest addition to Nuvo’s expanding range of innovative pre-band instruments. Designed specifically to suit young students trying out brass for the first time, the jHorn is compact, lightweight, and durable. With standard horn fingerings, the jHorn plays the same register as a baritone horn or euphonium but has a unique multi-cup mouthpiece to allow students to experiment with low, middle, and high brass embouchures. It can also be played with a standard trumpet, alto horn or small bore trombone mouthpiece.

With piston-type actuators, the patented rotary face valves are low maintenance and require no valve oil. The whole instrument can be flushed out frequently and quickly with hot soapy water. The jHorn is tuned in the key of B♭, but has a set of C tuning slides. This means it can be converted to play in concert pitch to play along with the other instruments in Nuvo’s pre-band program, WindStars.
