Double Tiger Horns of Dub

Horns of Dub is a high-grade blend of Trombone, Trumpet & Tenor Saxophone that together form the classic 1970s Reggae horn section featuring top New York session guys paying tribute to the harmonic, melodic and rhythmic styling’s of legendary Reggae horn players such as Dean Fraser, Felix (Deadly Headly) Bennett, Rico Rodriquez, Cedric Brooks and Dirty Harry.

There are 22 different themes with multiple melodies, harmonies, chord stab variations to choose from and also included both dry unaffected version and dubbed (effected) versions are available.
