THEIN "Tristan" - Wood Trumpet

Model Information

These instruments usually built with a wooden cladding. For a “Tristan” production, the Thein Brothers carried out an experiment in using a pure wooden bell which far better represents the sound expected by Wagner.
Wagner planned this instrument as an expansion to the sound of the English Horn, which we also approach by using the specially designed mouthpiece with a large bore.


  • Bell diameter: 132
  • Material: Lacquered maple with brass core
  • Bore: 11.50 mm / 0.453 in.
  • Recommended mouthpiece: MH1-E, natural horn material
