The H281 is the same as the H181 but features extra-long main and Bb tuning slides and has a detachable bell flare with a flat case.

Model H181 features a bronze bell that produces a darker sound. Capable of a wide range of dynamics, it can be played loud without a brassy edge to the sound.

  • Good Playing French Horn
  • February 27, 2017
  • By: Jesus Y.

This instrument plays very very well. It blends in a section perfectly and can drive sound out and above the ensemble during solo sections. The fit and finish quality is professional-grade. It's a wonderful instrument and I love playing it. Definitely much better than my old worn out 8D; It's worth it to get into a modern horn when the old vintage instruments wear out. Hard to part with an old friend, but I feel that the precision of a new instrument is a good choice.
