excellent!

Comments about Holton H378 Intermediate French Horn:

I bought this horn two years ago, and I have never been upset with it. It has a beautiful tone. It is a very comfortable instrument. The valves are unbelievably SMOOTH when oiled (I use the Holton oil that comes with it!). The instrument sounds as great as it looks. I've play-tested a few different brands before, and I was uncomfortable with all of them except this one. I just think Holton horns are magnificent.

I Love It

By Nina

from Ft. Myers, FL USA

Comments about Holton H378 Intermediate French Horn:

Many music writers for bands and symphonies give the French horns solos or other parts to be heard well over the rest of the symphony or band. When that happens, the horn needs to give a full and rich sound. The Holton 378 did that well for me. The instrument gives off a mellifluous sound. It is very clear as long as the water is emptied. The valves and slides move very smoothly. The instrument can get scratched up easily, but if you're careful, it shouldn't be a trouble. The Holton 378 is definitely worth its price for someone who plans to continue studying the French horn.

Great instrument

By holton

from Malaysia

Comments about Holton H378 Intermediate French Horn:

I bought this instrument last month. It is very reasonably priced compared to its outstanding quality. The horn has perfect intonation, very tight, fast action lightweight valves. It has very bright and singing sound. Besides the horn is very in tune. It has excellent low notes and easy to sound. It is an ideal student horn.

Tough Stuff

By Unknown*

from Chicago

Comments about Holton H378 Intermediate French Horn:

The Holton Horn is awesome. I have had one for about 1 year and a half, which means I only played a single horn for about half a year. But switching over to a Holton Double Horn was more than I expected. It was even better than playing a single horn. It was like joy.It's great. It's tone quality is good which means my own tone quality has gotten better over time. The Holton Horn is good for students that have progressed quickly over the single horn. It will really show you a way to play the French Horn.

Good horn for pre-teen/ teen students!!

Comments about Holton H378 Intermediate French Horn:

I just purchased this horn for my 11 year old after doing much research. This horn was highly recommended for young students being that it is affordable and the metal is stronger than that of imports. My daughter could not be more thrilled with this horn and says the sound quality is good and that Holton is known for the high quality of it's valves (she researches too). Her teacher was very pleased and a local music store said that this horn is very good quality. If you are not looking to spend a lot but want a quality horn that can handle what a young person may put it through, this is the one. I believe this horn will take her through high school.
