Introduced to the Paxman range in 1999, the model 23 was the result of a desire to build a more open, free-blowing instrument in the style of a Geyer of Knopf horn, but retaining the distinctive characteristics of a Paxman.

Unlike the true Geyer wrap, it incorporates the Merewether system, which allows the air to flow in the same direction through the valve block on both the F and Bb horns. This minimises disruption of the airflow, allowing smooth slurring and beautiful legato playing. It also features independent F and Bb tuning slides and a waterkey on the mouthpipe.

Like the models 20 and 25, it is available with a built in stopping valve (model 23st) and has a choice of bell tapers and alloys.

A compact valve section can be specified for no additional cost (please see the separate page for details).
