Hand made ‘Hand horn’ crook couplers – made to customer specifications


Artisan Horns are specialists in building and repairing French Horns, however occasionally we are asked to make ‘something different’!


A friend of the company is a solo violinist and having experienced numerous issues with mass produced “off the shelf” products, they approached us to make something bespoke, to fit their instrument and playing posture exactly.

The result was inspired by an old wooden bridge design originally created by E R VOIGT and Sons Ltd. which are no longer produced.

Further to the delight and success of our design, these shoulder rests can be ordered directly from us, as bespoke items.
