Overview

The Holton H279 Farkas Professional French Horn is the same as model H179, but with a detachable bell. Farkas models are regarded among working professionals and leading academics as the flagships of the Holton fleet. These French Horns produce the truly centered tone sought by all, and its true temper makes it a delight to fly over even the most difficult passages. The solid nickel silver edition model H279 has especially good center and projection. This free-blowing horn features a rich, dark sound designed for the "big horn" artist. The tapered tubing and throat of the bell are larger for a bigger, darker tone. The H279 French Horn's 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.
