Holton H179 Farkas Model - $2800 (Watkinsville, GA)


condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Holton Fremch Horn - Farkas
model name / number: H179/ Serial #666536

I am selling my extra horn! It is a professional model horn, but also a great horn for a student and budding horn player. This horn is particularly good as it plays in tune across the whole register of the horn and has an even tone throughout. It comes complete with case and mouthpiece. Normally, this horn costs around $4500. Let me know if you are interested and we can arrange a time to come and play it. I am also happy to liaise with a band teacher or private lesson instructor about the horn. It's serial number is 666 536.

"The Holton H179 Professional Farkas French Horn is regarded among working professionals and leading academics as the flagship of the Holton line. It produces the centered tone sought by all players. True temper makes it a delight to fly over even the most difficult passages. The solid nickel silver edition of the model H179 French Horn has especially good center and projection. This free-blowing Farkas 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."
