The Holton H179 Farkas Double French Horn is the most popular Farkas horn. It has particularly good centre and projection with a Krüspe wrap and solid nickel silver material which responds quickly along with the large throat bell and large free-blowing tubing providing an open, dark sound.

All Holton French Horns, including the single and double models, feature valve rotors that are tapered. This is so that as the valve wears, it automatically seats itself. This includes the bearing surfaces axles on each end of the valve and the bearing plates.

All Holton French Horn bells are made with overlapped seams. This is much more durable than one made with a butt seam. It also produces a better tone and timbre. This is one of the outstanding characteristics on which Holton USA French Horns developed its reputation.
