A full, not compensating, double.
It requires no compromise of intonation on valve combination, as is the case with compensating designs. The fifth valve is a Bb-F rotor. The fourth valve is a muting valve that lowers the horn 3/4 step to bring stopped horn mutes into tune without intonation. Extra fourth slide puts Bb in the key of A, so written E horn parts do not have to be transposed.

Comments about Holton H200 Professional Descant French Horn:
The H200 is better in tune, more consistent sound in all registers, and is more responsive than the 12D. Plus it has a detachable bell. The case is cheap though. The H200 is a shameless copy of the original Paxman 40. Of course, you know about imitation and flattery!!!
