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.
