The Lídl family has been manufacturing brass instruments in the Czech Republic since 1892. We make trumpets, flugelhorns, french horns, tubas and tenor and baritone horns. All our instruments are handmade by experienced instrument makers and all parts are produced in our factory.

We use only the best materials to make our instruments. Our trumpets, flugelhorns and French horns have a clear tone and are easy to play. Our tubas and tenor/baritone horns have a rich, full sound. We offer high quality brass instruments at an affordable price for students, amateurs and professionals alike.

The Student model series (children's horn) has been tailored precisely to the needs of young horn players. The Josef Lídl factory was the first manufacturer of this compactly dimensioned horn. A low weight and a smaller body characterise these full-sized French horns.


The French horns of the Josef Lídl manufacture are characterised by very good workmanship and intonation as well as their warm horn sound. Double French horns from Josef Lídl are offered in various model series. From the entry-level model in Bb or F to the fully developed double French horn LHR 860 Filharmonik. Furthermore, we are always working on the further development of the model range in cooperation with renowned horn players. All Josef Lídl double French horns can be converted from F/Bb to Bb/F on request.
