The H280 is the same as the H180 but features extra-long main and Bb tuning slides, detachable bell and flat case.

Free-blowing horn with rich and resonant intonation. Bell and branch are made of a special brass alloy for a slightly darker coloring of tone. Good projection. Model H180 is an excellent orchestral horn with dark sound and bright overtones.

  • Love this Horn
  • February 27, 2017

I love that Holton finally got onboard with mass-marketing their screw bell instruments. It makes the horn so much more portable and less of a pain on the day-to-day. This will probably be the last horn I ever have to buy. It plays amazingly well in every respect and I can't think of a better instrument off the top of my head.
