"Monster Sound!!!"

By Lauren-bTBIP

from Madison, Alabama

Comments about Holton H379 Intermediate French Horn:

I have had this model horn since fifth grade. Now I am in 11th, and it still plays as well as when it was new. Numerous directors have commented on the "monster sound and tone" that I have, and I attribute most of it to this wonderful horn. I know that it will continue to serve me well in this upcoming year as section leader for the symphonic band.

This French Horn is one of the Best, along with all of the other Conn French Horns there are. I have used this horn model since I was in the 6th grade. I have used it all my life and think that that it is the best! I have never, seen, heard or used a better french Horn. I promise you that you will be completely satisfied if you get this model.

Good intermediate

By Ben Reidhead

from Colorado

Comments about Holton H379 Intermediate French Horn:

For an intermediate level horn, it is good. However, after playing it for a year, I bought my own horn (the 379 was a school horn), and my teacher said that the 379 was holding me back. So in summary - this horn is good for your first 3-4 years of playing only. I would not recommend buying this new unless you are not planning to go to college as a musician. Beyond that, it is a very good deal, as is the 378, (which I liked better).

Terrific horn!

By Mike-6iskV

from Iowa

Comments about Holton H379 Intermediate French Horn:

I've had the horn about 5 or 6 months and I've played it in a school concert band, in a community orchestra, and at gigs. I've never had a problem with it. It always has a nice tone which is my favorite thing about the horn and I have never found anything not to like about it.

Warm tone, steady beautiful chords

By Zach-uAFIq

from Singapore

Comments about Holton H379 Intermediate French Horn:

I would personally say that this horn is very well crafted. The tone produced on any note is warm, steady and high notes are moderately easy to reach in my opinion. I strongly recommend this horn to intermediate players. The tone produced is loud and dynamics are easily achieved. Best horn I own.

Awesome Horn

By Ken-EDLi5

from Columbus, Ohio USA

Comments about Holton H379 Intermediate French Horn:

Having not played for years, I purchased a used F Horn to begin playing again. I have used that horn for a couple of years, but decided I wanted a double horn. The Holton H379 is an awesome instrument, from the ease of playing to the wonderful sound. I would recommend it to any one that enjoys the horn. My experience with WW&BW was outstanding and would use them again, price was equally outstanding.

Great horn

By Tim-UrhIt

Comments about Holton H379 Intermediate French Horn:

It's no wonder that this horn is the top seller. For a great price you can get a profesional horn with beautiful tone quality. If you can, check out you local music store to try out this horn and if you like it then buy it here for a better price.
