Farkas mouthpieces offer the extra range, power and tonal color that have made them one of the most popular French horn mouthpieces in the world. Whether for intricately played symphonic work or beginner development, there's a Farkas to meet the challenge.

DC: Produces very clean attacks and a large resonant, velvety tone. Popular with both high and low horn players because it plays well in all registers.

MC: Round, ringing tone with a touch of velvet in all registers. Well suited for all-around symphony or solo playing.

MDC: Sensitive yet comfortable. Good response across entire range. For players who desire a slightly darker tone.

SC: Extremely clear high register with clean attacks. Ringing tone but not shrill. Excellent for high baroque music or extremely high technical passages.

VDC: Large, Teutonic tone. Very helpful for the player who has a too-bright tone since it mellows the tone significantly. For the robust mature player. Extremely deep cup and very large bore.

XDC: Superior mouthpiece for the player who wishes to play in the grand manner of the "Helden" horn players. Also produces a soft and mellow tone for the player who might have a naturally bright or shrill tone.
