The LDx6 is the newest brainchild born of the Lewis & Dürk collaboration. This double Bb/high F descant horn is known for its exceptional response and intonation. The special valve configuration allows the Bb lead pipe to be extra long, enabling a rich and full tone quality throughout the registers. The high F side features a separate mouth pipe that helps align its timbre with that of the Bb horn, making the two sides interact in a homogenous way. Another of the great advantages of this model is the separate slide for tuning the high F side. In addition, an F extension that lengthens the A stop valve is available, making it possible to play the natural tones of the low F horn.
