Model LDx5 / Boston


Product number: Modell LDx5 / Boston.176
Manufacturer DürkHorns
The LDx5 came into being through the collaboration of two experts in their fields – Master Craftsman Steven W. Lewis and Dietmar Dürk. Masterful workmanship, in combination with the best of materials and years of experience, has brought fantastic results. The horn is traditional in design, but the concept behind its construction is an innovative one. The tools and production techniques were developed in-house and specifically for this project, supporting traditional handicraft and assuring the quality, consistent standard and series identity of each individual horn. The gentle, careful handling of materials during construction insures a minimum of material stress, resulting in a horn that speaks freely, responds quickly, and resonates with an open and clear sound from the very first note.

The LDx5 is also available as a Boston model. The slides and the lead pipe are also made of brass. Versatile timbres from light to blaring. But also soft and elegant.
