What kind of French Horn should I get?

I'm in the market for a new Double Horn. I am a Sophomore in college majoring in French Horn Performance. For the past 7.5 years I've been playing a Holton H181 and I think it's time for an upgrade.

What I want out of my new horn:
Clear, accurate high register
Meaty low range
The wrap type doesn't matter to me.
Dark tone, so probably yellow, gold or rose brass parts.
Screw bell

Brands I don't want.
Yamaha
Conn

Any makers from Holton to Schmid are open to considerations except the ones named above.

Would like to keep the price under 9000.

I will take any and all suggestions.

Thanks everyone!

I am going to be rather blunt with this. It sounds like you want the horn to do the work for you. All of the things you mentioned can be done on just about any professional level horn. Some will make them easier than others, but you are likely to find that each horn will make some things easier but others harder. I recommend that you get to a regional or international workshop (which you should be doing as a performance major anyway) and play lots of different horns. Also talk to your teacher. He/she knows your playing and should be able to help you identify what instruments are well suited to you. Also don't discount Conn and Yamaha. Plenty of professionals play on both instruments (and with good reason). Familiarize yourself with ALL of the models each makes. Conn makes 2 geyer wrap horns, not something most people associate with Conn. Yamaha has the 667 and 668 which are wildly different instruments. Before you spend up to 9K on a new horn, ask yourself if you really need it. Are there specific things about your horn are just unacceptable or do you just want a new horn because you have had the Holton for 7.5 years? If you decide a new horn is for you investigate all of these. I can't recommend any one model because I don't know how you play or what you really want out of the horn
