The Series 4 is based on Paxman's highly successful Series 3 and shares many of its characteristics. It also incorporates several features usually only found on top level professional instruments. These include a detachable bell as standard, water key on the mouthpipe, protective nickel hand guard and nickel silver valve casings.
The bell is medium large bore, the optimum for this type of instrument, made in yellow brass for a characteristic warm, yet exciting sound. The wrap is based on a Geyer style, which makes it a particularly free blowing horn. .
This is, in our opinion, the premium intermediate level horn which enjoys many of the characteristics of Paxman professional model, at a very advantageous price.
