Description

  • The horn that I'm selling is in flawless condition.
    It's the same configuration as a Holton H179 (professional) but the metals are different. Particularly the rose brass bell.
    I really babied this horn!  It's super nice!!!   It's completely oiled and lubed, ready to play.
    The tone quality is very rich and full. 
                    
    New price is $6,200 from most places.
    I'm asking $4,575.
     
    Also included is a 
    • Holton-Farkas Medium cup mouthpiece
    • Hand guard that holds the weight of the horn instead of the pinky finger.
    Here's a description of the horn from the Conn-Selmer site:

    Holton horns offer an alternative in design that creates a great experience for the young or advanced players. The Farkas wrap offers independent tuning for convenience allowing the player to tune the Bb side of the horn separately from the F side.

    The H181 features a bronze bell that produces a darker sound. Capable of a wide range of dynamics, it can be played loud without a brassy edge to the sound.
