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 H180 utilizes the same tapers as the H179, however, the main components are yellow brass. This makes for a free-blowing horn with rich, resonant sound. The yellow brass components provide a slightly darker coloring of tone. The independent Bb main tuning slide allows for incerased tuning flexibility.
