Used Holton H-179 Double French Horn in Nickel-Silver, Made in the USA; serial #345030



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 H179 has especially good center and projection. This free-blowing horn features a rich, dark sound designed especially for the “big horn” artist; the tapered tubing and throat of the bell are larger for a bigger, darker tone. The bell flare produces a mellow, velvety tone plus a little overtone of a ringing quality. Hard nickel silver responds quickly and sounds brighter up close. The most popular Farkas model.


This horn came to us in great shape, with little worked needing to be done to it. Minor dents have been removed and the horn has been thoroughly cleaned. 

Set Includes: Original Case, Holton Farkas MDC Mouthpiece


MAP Price on a new one is $6,201.00, this one is a best buy at $3,650.00
