    Fantastic instrument

    Comments about Holton H281 Professional Farkas French Horn:

    The Holton H281 with screw bell is a fantastic instrument. The tonality of the rose brass gives a perfect sound for either small ensemble, solo, or symphonic band playing. It is easy to move throughout the partials of the horn, making it have a smoother transition between notes. Also the rose brass bell greatly intensifies the dynamic contrast of the horn. The horn plays perfectly in a soft to "brassy" dynamics. Overall, this is one of the greatest horns.
