Played in many international orchestras and by leading soloists, the Rigoutat English horn needs no introduction. This instrument has great precision and unparalleled tone. It is made from Mozambique ebony. The keys are silver-plated nickel. All our English horns come with two Rigoutat reeds.

What fans of the Professionnal English Horn have to say about it

Gildas Prado

English Horn Soloist for the Orchestre de Paris

For me, Rigoutat English horns are characterized by their lively tone. They are instruments that sing out, are expressive, and have a rich and colorful range of timbres. English horns are warm, voluptuous, melancholic instruments, close to the alto in an orchestra. As a tuner, I’m always on the lookout for a beautiful sound, suppleness, and consistency of tone over the whole register.

Claire Bagot

Principal Oboe of the Orchestre National de Lille

I fell in love with the English horn, it’s magnificent. I chose the Rigoutat English horn because I found it easier. It’s delicate, which I like because it represents the French English horn school well.
