Product Information

The Holton H379 Intermediate French Horn offers the quality and elegance of a truly artistic instrument while remaining a great value for the amateur or aspiring musician. The dark sound and excellent projection of the H379 sets it apart from the similar H179 Farkas French Horn. The hard nickel silver of the instrument gives it a bright sound and makes it a highly responsive instrument. Hand-fitted rotary valves create quick and smooth playing. The Holton H379 also features a Kruspe wrap, a .468” bore, and a 12-1/4” large throat bell. Silver inner and outer slides are also key components of this horn. Enjoy the deep, dark sounds of the Holton H3790 Intermediate French Horn in a nickel silver finish. Mouthpiece and case included.

The Holton H379 Intermediate Double French Horn has a good center and projection. It has hard nickel silver material which responds quickly together with a large throatproviding an open, dark sound. Hand-fitted rotary valves are manufactured to precise tolerances to provide quick and effortless response.

All Holton French Horns, including the single and double models, feature valve rotors that are tapered. This is so that as the valve wears, it automatically seats itself. This includes the bearing surfaces axles on each end of the valve and the bearing plates.

All Holton French Horn bells are made with overlapped seams. This is much more durable than one made with a butt seam. It also produces a better tone and timbre. This is one of the outstanding characteristics on which Holton USA French Horns developed its reputation.

Specifications:

Key of F/Bb, .468 /11.89mm bore, 12.25 large throat bell, nickel silver, tapered rotors and bearings, solid nickel silver inner and outer slides, supplied in hard shaped case.
