The H378 has similar playing characteristics to those of the H178 with a bright, compact feel and outstanding tonal beauty. Medium throat bell provides a singing tone with fine legato characteristics. Yellow brass produces a higher tone color and clearer projection. Independent Bb main tuning slide allows for increased tuning flexibility.
The Holton H379 Intermediate French Horn offers the quality and elegance of a truly artistic instrument while remaining a great value for the amateur or aspiring musician. The dark sound and excellent projection of the H379 sets it apart from the similar H179 Farkas French Horn. The hard nickel silver of the instrument gives it a bright sound and makes it a highly responsive instrument. Hand-fitted rotary valves create quick and smooth playing.
