The Fox Renard Model 555 student English horn combines exceptional playability with a robust build, ideal for beginners and advancing students. Modified conservatory keywork crafted from silver-plated keys allows musicians to explore an array of techniques, while a durable high-quality plastic resin body provides a resonant sound comparable to wooden instruments. Resistant to damage from environmental factors as well as normal wear, the Fox 555 requires little maintenance and will serve dedicated students well for years to come. Several thoughtful design elements, including cork and bladder pads, two XL bocals, Teflon-tipped stainless steel screws and an included case and accessories, round out this exemplary student English horn.
Modified Key System Opens Doors to New RepertoireThe Fox 555 leverages a modified conservatory key system, equipped with silver-plated keys and numerous enhancements enabling advancing technique. Split plate half hole, left-hand F, F resonance mechanism, F# key tab, B tab, articulated C# mechanism, open-hole A, E and D keys and an array of trill keys provide access to an expansive range of fingering options. Musicians can explore new repertoire with confidence in the Fox 555's capability and responsiveness.
Durable yet Resonant Body Mimics GrenadillaWhile highly durable, the Fox 555's plastic resin body produces a warm, rich tone comparable to wood. Resistant to damage from temperature changes, humidity and minor impacts, the plastic resin requires little maintenance yet exhibits a resonant quality ideal for student instruments. Cork pads on select keys and a bladder pad on the low B key further enhance the Fox 555's tonal qualities and playability.
Premium Components and Thoughtful DesignFrom silver plated keys to stainless steel springs and screws, no detail was overlooked in the crafting of the Fox 555. XL bocals in lengths 2 and 3 provide a range of tonal options, while a comfortable thumb rest with strap ring reduces fatigue over long practice sessions. An included case, reed case, reeds, silk swab and cork grease provide everything needed to begin playing immediately.
