"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 may be one of the nicest used Holton H179 French horns we've had up for sale! Its finish is one of the most reflective we've seen, and it plays like a dream. Our professional brass technician gave the horn a thorough cleaning, and through that cleaning, just a bit of lacquer wear became evident on it's upper 3rd valve slide. Generally speaking, this horn is in absolutely beautiful shape. As is its original case, which is included.
Take some time to browse the photos, but also stop in to see this beauty for yourself! And bring your mouthpiece so you can play on it! But be careful. A horn this nice is easy to fall in love with. Which means it won't be here long. Don't delay and miss your shot! Stop by today!
