Farkas french horn mouthpiece

By 

from Northeast PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Holton Farkas Series French Horn Mouthpiece in Silver:

I bought this mouthpiece for a school-owned Farkas french horn that was purchased with my daughter in mind. She loved this double horn and it served her well in her high school years. She was able to place at PMEA district and regional band and orchestra and to play for several college bands and orchestras in addition to high school concerts. Her senior year was spent at a private boarding school, where she held the principal horn chair, and so she was expected to give a senior recital performance. Her best mouthpiece went missing just before her recital. She called me and asked me if I could get her a new one in the next three days. I tried the regional music store and they did not have it in stock. I called Woodwinds/Brasswinds, and the brass specialist checked out various mouthpieces and chose this one. He set up expedited shipping and said that it would get there the morning of her concert. It did, and she was greatly pleased with the performance of this mouthpiece and how much better her horn sounded utilizing this. She chose her college partly because of the horn professor and horn studio, and because the school's band and orchestra director was an expert on the natural horn. We live in PA and the college is in Iowa, so she took a plane to school, and only brought this mouthpiece, as she did not have a quality horn of her own. She showed up for her audition with only this mouthpiece. The conductor had said that they could provide a horn for her audition. She used her own mouthpiece on the professional quality Farkas horn he provided. She said that she had never sounded so good. Her audition was a success, and she is now principal horn for band and orchestra. Also, her previous horn teacher had suggested a more expensive mouthpiece to improve her embouchure. After trying out the pricier mouthpiece, she decided that her sound was better with this one. I cannot state how pleased I am with this purchase. Your brass service person is to be commended, and the shipping took less than estimated, leaving her time to practice.

A "Renaissance Mouthpiece"

By

Comments about Holton Farkas Series French Horn Mouthpiece in Silver:

The Holton Farkas French horn mouthpiece is a great mouthpiece for all ranges. As any player knows, some mouthpieces work well for some but badly for others so I can't say this mouthpiece works for anybody. But I can say that it produces a big dark tone in both high and low registers. I personally play a Holton H177 Double Horn so the mouthpiece is very complimentary to the horn. I play one with a Medium-Deep cup and it seems to work fine for me. I have tested it against several other brands of mouthpieces. And it seems to work well in most all registers of the horn. I highly recommend this mouthpiece for nearly all players who prefer a smaller diameter with a deeper cup.
