Gold, Yellow Brass
The Holton 281 full double horn utilises the same Kruspe wrap as other popular models such as the 178, 180 and 179, however this horn differs with its mix of different brasses. The main bell section of the instrument is made from a gold brass, or rose brass as it is referred to by Holton, which helps create a darker tone in the quiet passages and brassy when loud. The main bows and tuning slides are yellow brass .
This model has a large bell taper and a detachable bell.
In good condition overall this is a good solid instrument for the grade 5-8 aspiring player or adult player
