Patterson Triple

Eb Triple now available, in addition to our original high-f model!

Possibly the best Triple Horn available. Our design has few compromises as all 3 sides have proper tapered sections insuring excellent playability. This Triple Horn is a dramatic improvement over previous triple horn designs and deserves the consideration of any player in the market for such an instrument.

“the best evolution of the Triple Horn to date… I’ve enjoyed playing it and feeling “normal” in a way I haven’t felt for 18-19 years!” Erik Ralske, NY Met

Our Triple Horn plays independently well in F, Bb and F-alto. All three sides of the instrument play exceptionally smooth and with a great sound. The tone match between the 3 horns is excellent. The response and play-ability in both the low and high registers is superb.

“I’ve been playing triples for most of my career in the US and abroad. They’ve solved many issues, but always with some compromise. With Patterson, there finally is a triple horn that gives the player everything without sacrifice”. Orlando Pandolfi, Freelancer, New England Area
