Excellent horn for chamber orchestra.
Bright, compact feel and sound with outstanding tonal beauty. Bell proportions provide a dark but singing tone with fine legato characteristics. Yellow brass produces a higher tone color with more overtones and clearer projection. Capable of playing pianissimo staccato notes sensitively, clearly, and evenly.
An instrument that will inspire your music. Order today.

Comments about Holton H178 Professional Farkas French Horn:
I've had this horn for about 9 months and paired it with a Tony Holtstead, Pax mouthpiece. This horn produces a bright yet warm sound that sings and sails through phrases. If you're looking for a horn that is less wide in sound, this is a terrific choice. You won't be disappointed. The only improvement that could be made to this model is to replace the bumper plates to a more subtantial design which I have done. This is the only issue that keeps the rating lower than a 10. I purchased it new in 2003.
