Comments about Holton H105 Professional French Horn:
I am going to be a french horn performance major at University of North Texas so my senior year I went out looking for the perfect horn. I found a 3 year old Holton H105 on hornplayer.net and never thought about it twice. This is the best horn i have ever had the privlege of playing on. It is practically impossible to over-blow the horn, it creates an amazing warm tone and is so easy to play! I highly highly reccomend trying out the H105 if you are considering a professional french horn career. In addition to its technical qualities, the horn is just beautiful! You can be sure that you will turn heads and stand out on stage :)Please, feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions or comments.
