Holton horns offer an alternative in design that creates a great experience for the young or advanced players. This Farkas model offers independent tuning for convenience allowing the player to tune the Bb side of the horn seperately from the F side.
The H279 has especially good center and projection. The larger tapers of the bell and branches produce a big, dark, rich tone. Nickel silver bell material responds quickly and the independent Bb main tuning slide allows for incerased tuning flexibility. Detachable bell.
