Underslung Octave Key System: An underslung octave mechanism is considered to have a much quicker, more responsive action than the traditional overslung system, and combined with the Fluororesin Non-Stick Mechanism with a non-stick coating only furthers the reliability and smooth action.
Air-tight, Waterproof Pads: Extended pad life and precise seals on the tone holes.
Metal Pad Reflectors: Adds clarity to the tone and improves the response across the whole instrument.
White Shell Keys: Indented shell keys ensure optimal grip and increased comfort on the player's fingers and prevent slipping even in the most technically demanding passages.
Palm Key Plate: Now as standard on the WO series, the addition of the palm key plate delivers high range resonance, acoustic depth, added projection and added tonal stability.
Double Key Arms: Using double arms on the Bell Keys, helps to keep the tone holes fully sealed by removing the chances of twisting or distortion of the tone hole cup. This in turn helps ensure reliable performance and tonal integrity.
Blue Steel Springs: Offer enhanced key action vs. stainless steel, holding their tension more effectively.
Thumb Rest: Four small points of contact minimise the effect on the tone of the instrument, while still providing comfort and support.
Balanced Tri-Point Brace: Firm link between the body and bell of the horn, providing strong structural support.
