Frank Holton Company and horn legend Ethel Merker joined forces to create this newest double French horn in the acclaimed Merker-Matic line.

Its tightly engineered mechanical linkage provides worry-free play and ease of adjustment. It is also available as a screw bell model.Model H183
This horn has the same features as the H175, except this is the yellow brass lacquer version of the popular Merker Matic horn. It is also available as a screw bell model.Model H189
Those hornists who want an instrument that provides great volume and sonorous tone without sacrificing control in the upper register need look no further. By combining an extra-large-throated bell and branch with the innovative Merker dual bore, the H189 offers the best of both worlds. It produces a tone that is exceptionally full, with rich depth that retains its core and timbral qualities. At the same time, it enables the artist to reach those difficult high notes with greater ease and accuracy. The horn also features the versatility of the independent Bb/F tuning system, as found on our finest Holton models, along with the adjustable finger hook and heavyweight valve caps that are a standard feature on all Merker-Matic horns. It is also available as a screw bell model.

Comments about Holton Merker Matic Series Double French Horn:
This is a professional horn - beautiful and full sounding with ease of playing. I have played it for church orchestra, community orchestra, community band and in a large wind symphony as well as with brass quintets and brass band. Great all round horn. You can't go wrong.
