F-Bogen für Wiener Horn von PETERSIK Instruments


Our F-crooks for YAMAHA and JUNGWIRTH Vienna horns, which were developed in close cooperation with professional musicians, are characterized by excellent response and more ease in the high register. The development goal was to give Vienna horn players more precision and control over their instrument without changing the unique Viennese horn sound. This new generation of F-crooks would not have been possible without the dedication, expertise and experience of Thomas Jöbstl, horn player of the Vienna State Opera and Vienna Philharmonic. With his profound knowledge of the instrument and his passion for the sound of the Vienna horn, he has been instrumental in achieving improved playability.



Material and scale

You have the choice between two selected brass alloys in wall thicknesses from 0.35 to 0.5 mm. The scale curves are optimized for Yamaha or Jungwirth horns.

Where and how can I test the F-crooks?

You have the possibility to test our F-crooks in our workshop with a personal consultation. Additionally, some Austrian instrument makers have our crooks in stock. We also organize selections for instance at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna or regularly participate in exhibitions in Austria. If you prefer, we can also send you a selection of 3-5 crooks to try out at home after a short phone consultation. Contact us for more information!
