Holton brass instruments feature a high level of playability and sound quality that continuously make them a go-to choice amongst discerning musicians. In fact, Holton French horns and trombones have a rich history that dates back to the late 1800s when accomplished trombonist Frank Holton opened up a second-hand brass instrument shop in Chicago. Not too longer after, Holton's very own brass instruments were being praised by many of his peers, and his reputation for exceptional craftsmanship continues to this day, with many stunning examples throughout this catalog to prove it.
Holton trombones and French horns come to life through a team of passionate brass instrument makers, and the visual beauty of each one makes that obvious. Just take a look at the H105 Professional French Horn. Holton's flagship model, this horn sports a specially tempered red brass bell to produce a rich and dark tone with plenty of projection. Additionally, the two interchangeable mouthpipes boast newly developed tapers for easy switching between work in large symphony orchestras and small chamber ensembles. From its gorgeous appearance to its incredible flexibility, the H105 is just the horn you need to make your performance stand out on stage.
Or perhaps you're in the market for a new bass trombone... in which case, feast your eyes on the TR181 Series Bass Trombone. Containing a 10" hand-hammered red brass bell, a chrome-plated nickel-silver inner slide and nickel-silver outer slide, inline independent dual triggers with ball-and-socket linkage, and lacquer finish, to call TR181 a masterpiece would be an understatement. As a bonus, this attractive B-flat trombone comes with a mouthpiece, and a deluxe wood shell case to ensure it's well protected when it's not being played.
Along with the instruments themselves, Holton also offers many brass instrument accessories in this selection, including tone intensifiers, hand guards, slide oil, mouthpieces and more. If taking your brass skills to a professional level is what you're aiming to achieve, then you owe it to yourself to explore everything Holton has to offer. After all, Holton is considered by many to be responsible for the finest horns and mouthpieces in the world today.
