Farkas mouthpieces offer the extra range, power and tonal color that have made them the single most popular French horn mouth-pieces in the world. Whether for intricately played symphonic work or beginner development, there's a Farkas to meet the challenge.

DC: Produces very clean attacks and a large resonant, velvety tone. Popular with both high and low horn players because it plays well in all registers.

MC: Round, ringing tone with a touch of velvet in all registers. Well suited for all-around symphony or solo playing.

MDC: Sensitive yet comfortable. Good response across entire range. For players who desire a slightly darker tone.

SC: Extremely clear high register with clean attacks. Ringing tone but not shrill. Excellent for high baroque music or extremely high technical passages.

VDC: Large, Teutonic tone. Very helpful for the player who has a too-bright tone since it mellows the tone significantly. For the robust mature player. Extremely deep cup and very large bore.

XDC: Superior mouthpiece for the player who wishes to play in the grand manner of the "Helden" horn players. Also produces a soft and mellow tone for the player who might have a naturally bright or shrill tone.

Good beginner mouthpiece


from Michigan

Comments about Holton Farkas Series French Horn Mouthpiece in Silver:

The first mouthpiece I ever played on was a Holton Farkas MC. It is a great mouthpiece for learning how to play, and is well-rounded. I later switched to a MDC, and found that its tone was much better. Holton Farkas mouthpieces are decent, but I would really like to see a bit more variety besides cup size. The rim contour is a bit too rounded for my liking, but otherwise, a good mouthpiece.
