Holton’s flagship model.
The world’s finest French horn just got better; the new H105 replaces Holton’s previous H104 flagship model.
The pursuit of perfection has yielded a new-generation French horn of superior performance and superb intonation. The H105’s technological and acoustical flexibility enables the artist to perform in a wide variety of playing situations. Its 2 interchangeable mouthpipes with newly developed tapers make it easy to switch between work in small chamber ensembles and large symphony orchestras. The specially tempered red brass bell produces a rich, dark sound capable of great volume without getting brassy.
Holton horns offer an alternative in design that creates a great experience for the young or advanced players. This kruspe model is the top model that holton makes offering a sound like no other with its bronze construction and interchangeable mouthpipe mechanism.
This Farkas Wrap horn offers a large throat bronze bell and branch with a nickel silver body. In addition, it has an interchangeable leadpipe system for orchestral or chamber brass settings. Holton horns also feature tapered rotors which create longevity for the instrument.
