The Holton H281 Farkas Double French Horn features a detachable bronze bell for easy transportation and storage.
The bronze bell produces a rich, dark tonal colour. Ideal the for the young or advanced players, this horn features the independent Bb main tuning slide which allows for increased tuning flexibility.
All Holton French Horns, including the single and double models, feature valve rotors that are tapered. This is so that as the valve wears, it automatically seats itself. This includes the bearing surfaces axles on each end of the valve and the bearing plates.
