The Holton H278 Farkas model French Horn offers a right, compact feel and sound with outstanding tonal beauty. Bell proportions provide a dark but singing tone with fine legato characteristics. Yellow brass produces a higher tone color with more overtones and clearer projection. Capable of playing pianissimo staccato notes sensitively, clearly and evenly. Excellent horn for chamber orchestra. The 278 is designed after the widely popular 178 model, only with a detachable bell for easier transport. Includes flat hardshell case.
