"Holton horns offer an alternative in design that creates a great experience for the young or advanced players. This Kruspe wrap model offers independent tuning for convenience allowing the player to tune the Bb side of the horn separately from the F side.
The Merker-Matic, the Ethel Merker model as is affectionately known, is a premium double French horn that offers the ultimate in craftsmanship and tonal splendor. Design features such as its newly designed 4th branch, dual bore, and mouthpipe tapers lead professionals to claim an ease of blowing in all registers as well as an exceptionally quick response and a smooth, precise legato.
Key of F/Bb double, .468″ bore; 12.25″ medium-throated, hand-hammered, yellow brass detachable bell; .310 venturi of yellow brass; tapered hand-lapped valve rotors; brass branches and bows with solid nickel-silver connecting ferrules; slides are solid nickel-silver inside and outside. Includes silver-plated mouthpiece and slimline wood shell case."
When this Holton H175 double horn arrived in our shop, our professional brass technician got to work right away. They gave the horn an ultrasonic cleaning, re-soldered a pair of braces, and took out some dents in the horn's bell. Overall, the horn is in great shape. It is showing a little bit of lacquer wear, but only as much as is common for a used double horn. This Holton H175 is ready to take home, so come and check it out before someone else snags it!
