You are looking at a Holton Model 74 Single French Horn in the Key of Bb. This horn, made in 1955 in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, has been refinished in the not too distant past and is in good playing condition. It includes a hard case (not original) also in good condition. The Horn is very responsive, easy to play, plays well in tune, and provides a very pleasing smooth tone, surprisingly rich and full through all registers. All tuning slides and valves work well. Valve compression is not like new but quite adequate for well centered and stable play. The finish is good except for an area of dent repair where the lead tube brace attaches to the horn. The letters AISD are engraved on the main tuning slide. There are some minor scratches and dings and the lacquer finish is about 80% complete. All braces are perfectly secure and there are no loose joints. The horn has been fully cleaned and lubricated. Valve strings were recently replaced.
This horn is ready to play.
