Holton H179 Farkas Series Fixed Bell Double Horn


Buy from Woodwind and Brasswind

The Holton H179 is a high-quality French horn that is popular among professional musicians and music educators. It is known for producing a well-balanced, centered tone and being easy to play, even on challenging passages. The solid nickel silver version of the H179 is particularly noted for its good projection and rich, dark sound, which is especially well-suited for players who prefer a “big horn” sound. The tapered tubing and throat of the bell are larger than those on some other models, which contributes to the horn’s full, velvety tone and adds a hint of ringing overtones. The hard nickel silver material used in the construction of the horn is known for its quick response and bright sound when played up close.
