About This Listing

. The Holton H179 Professional Farkas French Horn is regarded among working professionals and leading academics as the flagship of the Holton line. It produces the centered tone sought by all players. True temper makes it a delight to fly over even the most difficult passages. The solid nickel silver edition of the model H179 French Horn has especially good center and projection. This free-blowing Farkas horn features a rich, dark sound designed especially for the “big horn” artist. The tapered tubing and throat of the bell are larger for a bigger, darker tone. The bell flare produces a mellow, velvety tone plus a little overtone of a ringing quality. Hard nickel silver responds quickly and sounds brighter up close.

This is one of Holton's flagship models, commonly used among highly successful high school bands, and quite possibly sets the bar for the college level french horn. This horn is known for its centered tone across all registers and is commonly used by players who need a versatile horn that plays just as well in the low register as it does the high. Melodee Music has a large stock of these french horns from school loan programs. Some have been played and have some marks and minor dings and dents (none serious). Some have not been played and are close to new condition. We will pick the best to ship as these are sold.
