  1. The Holton H176 is a professional double French horn, one of several models produced during the 1990s through the collaboration of the manufacturer with renowned horn player Ethel Merker (19232012). The H176 was one of the most popular of the so-called Merker-Matic series.

    This horn overall is in very good condition. There is very little in the way of lacquer wear. There are a few cosmetic dents here and there with some scratching on the bell spout. Otherwise, this would make an ideal horn for the aspiring player looking for a largeer sound with more projection.

  2. All our second hand instruments receive a full service before being put up for sale. The work carried out on this Hotlon 176 is guaranteed for 60 days.
