The new Paxman Series 5 is a professional level instrument from the same range as the highly successful Paxman Primo and Academy horns. Following the hugely popular introduction of the Series 4 at the end of 2008, Paxman decided that the next step was to produce a professional level instrument in this range.

The result is the Series 5, a horn with a yellow brass, detachable bell, professional quality valve section, hand guard, mouthpipe guard, water key and nickel silver valve casings. The bell has a similar profile to the Paxman medium bell and the leadpipe is designed to compliment this. The Series 5 is based on the UK built Paxman Model 20, with an independent Bb tuning slide. The playing style is a very responsive feel, with a rich, warm sound that is still capable of carrying to the back of the concert hall.

Supplied with a rucksack style case and mouthpiece.
