Used Holton H-177 "Phil Farkas model" Double French Horn in Nickel-Silver, Fixed Bell Flare; serial #695,441


Holton horns offer an alternative in design that creates a great experience for the young or advanced players. The Farkas wrap offers independent tuning for convenience allowing the player to tune the Bb side of the horn separately from the F side.


The H-177 is a free-blowing horn with rich and resonant intonation and good projection.


The H-177 is the same model that Phil Farkas played in his last few years in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.  We got the information direct from Phil....not from a salesman.


The original valves on this horn are still tight , with 99% of original lacquer.


This one is a late H-177 that has never been school owned and has come to us in close to pristine original condition. 


Good player, not expensive!




  • New Case
  • New Holton Farkas Mouthpiece


This one looks and plays like new!
