Holton Merker Matic H289 horn

Comments about Holton Merker Matic Series Double French Horn:

This horn produces a fantastic, rich resonant sound in all registers. I have been playing it for over 5 years. I am especially happy with the mid to high notes on the Bb side. The smaller bore on the Bb side seems to provide me with more control and flexibility than on my former instrument, without sacrificing projection and sound quality in any way. The other hornists in my group all play Conn 8D. I can blend with them easily, but when I want to soar above the section, no problem. My only issue is that the valves tend to be a little bit noisier than the Conn's. This wasn't true at first, and may be a simple matter for the shop tech to address. Others in my section also use a Bach #3, so the mouthpiece is not a contributor to the differences.
