Click to enlarge


Maker:  HOLTON

Model:  H-378

Type: F/Bb full double

Bell throat profile: medium

Alloy: lacquered yellow brass

Bell flare: fixed

Lacquer: mostly good, with just a few very slight scuffs, but no major loss or deterioration.

Valve compression: very good

Weight: 2.5 kg / 5lb 8oz

Case: Holton original, heavy but very protective.

Overall condition: Mechanically and cosmetically very good, with a few slight blemishes noted above, but these have no effect on the horn’s fine playing qualities.

Further details:  An ‘acoustically excellent’ one-owner example of this long tried and tested Intermediate double horn, usually a first recommendation by a teacher advising an upgrade from a beginner or a mini horn.  It has a clean and even response over the whole range, with a particularly good high register.  

Its reasonable price reflects the very few visual issues rather than its playing qualities.
