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


Designed to be an instrument that provides great volume and sonorous tone without sacrificing control in the upper register. The large throat rose brass bell produces a full rich sound that retains its core and timbral qualities. The dual bore configuration helps with high range accuracy. The H176 comes standard with an adjustable finger hook and heavyweight valve caps. The independent Bb main tuning slide allows for incerased tuning flexibility.
