OVERVIEW

A rose brass bell for an especially dark tone.

Key of F/Bb double; .468" bore; 12-1/4" large-throated, hand-hammered, red brass bell; .310 venturi of nickel silver; tapered, hand-lapped brass rotors; solid brass branches and bows with nickel silver ferrules; solid nickel silver slides inside and out.

Best Uses

    Comments about Holton H181 Professional Farkas French Horn:

    Beautiful range of tonal characteristics depending on mouth pieces used. Very warm cinematic sound at heart but can be bright when needed and if you need one all around horn to do the job then this it, especially if you can only afford one horn. I really miss her :(. Never loved an instrument as much as this one.
