Holton Farkas H179 - Full Double French Horn (559379)

SKU: CH179-559379

Product Information

The Holton H179 Farkas Series Fixed Bell Double Horn is praised by professional musicians and by academics for its truly centered tone. With a centered tone, even the most difficult passages become easier to play. 

This particular pre-owned H179 is in nice clean condition throughout. An instrument designed for the “big horn” artist, the H179 has a dark, rich sound. Its velvety tone is complemented by a slight ringing overtone. The large tapered tubing and grand throat on the instrument enhance the dark tone and make it bigger and fuller. The H179 features a .468” bore, a 12-1/4” hand-hammered nickel silver bell, and a large throated .310 nickel silver venture.

Noiseless string action creates an easy, quiet playing experience. The instrument also has solid nickel silver slides inside and outside along with tapered hand-lapped brass valve rotors. In solid nickel silver, the Holton H179 Farkas Series Fixed Bell Double Horn has even greater depth and projection making it a truly trusted professional horn.
