Full Double F/Bb
The Holton 181 full double horn utilises the same wrap and large bell taper as other popular models such as the 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/rose brass (for a warm tone), with the main bows and tuning slides made from yellow brass (to add a bit of brightness to the sound) .
This horn has some lacquer loss in the usual places form use and from its conversion to screw bell.
In good condition, overall this is a solid and versatile instrument for the grade 5+ player right through to professional level.
