OVERVIEW

An uncompromising orchestral horn.

The Holton H177 Professional Farkas French Horn is an adaptable instrument for the professional or dedicated amateur musician. Equally well-suited for the marching band or the orchestra, the H177 delivers a full, bright sound. It features a .446 bore and a 12-1/4 medium throat, hand-hammered, nickel-silver bell. The use of corrosion-resistant nickel silver throughout the instrument adds to the horns longevity and durability. Nickel silver also composes the branches, bows, and ferrules and solid nickel silver makes up the slides. This horn also has a compact feel with comfortable additions like a change lever to fit the thumb in a natural position. Its tapered hand-fitted rotary valve system and string linkage promises easy, smooth playing. Whether played at the symphony or on the football field, the Holton H177 Professional Farkas French Horn is prepared to deliver its bright, beautiful sound.

Reliability in a nut-shell.

Comments about Holton H177 Professional Farkas French Horn:

While I find that the sound does get pinched at very loud volumes. However, I notice that it doesn't have a defined 'bad note' that Holton's are famous for. (Mine, at least). I generally get a dark tone quality, and I find it hard to produce a bright, brassy, march-like sound on the H177 as opposed to the H179. However, the H177 overlay is what I prefer. It has a better feel, for me personally at least, and I feel that it fits my body better. It is a reliable horn that is definitely worth the price. It's definitely under-rated more often than not.
