Farkas French

How much can I sell my used Holton French Horn for?

I have a used silver nickel double Holton Farkas French Horn I want to sell. It's the H179 model and was bought in 1970. That model is still manufactured today and sells new at MSRP $5515. My horn has some scratches and some of the lacquer is coming off, but after a trip to the music shop, some ultrasonic cleaning and grease and oil, everything is working well and sounds great. Other than the cosmetic defects (no dents, just scratches), it's in good condition. I'd like to sell this, but am looking for a ballpark figure of what a good starting price would be. Thanks.

check on hornsociety.org in the classifieds as well as on ebay. Look for other Holton 179s that are for sale. I think I usually see them going for $1700-2300 or so...given the age of your horn I would expect a little less though. Although it may not show cosmetically, a horn of that age probably has some wear in the valve section. (unless it has been unplayed in a closet for a while)
