A Farkas Mouthpiece with a Heroic Tone

Developed in cooperation with acclaimed player Philip Farkas, the Holton Farkas XDC yields extended range and power, along with a gorgeous tonal color. This French horn mouthpiece offers excellent embouchure development for beginners, as well as the easy playability pro-level players need for intricate symphony work. The XDC features an extra-deep cup, a 16.94mm diameter, and a 5.23mm throat; it boasts a medium-narrow rim, producing a rich, heroic sound reminiscent of the "Helden" horn players. What's more, this mouthpiece is the perfect antidote for a player with too-bright tone.

Since its founding in 1896 by Frank Holton in Chicago, the Holton brand has become the choice of top professionals all over the world. Frank, an accomplished trombonist, started his business by selling his own proprietary slide oil, which then evolved into the production of brass instruments. After moving his factory to Elkhorn, Wisconsin, in 1917, Frank Holton & Company continued to produce high-end brass instruments, and then later expanded into student-level horns. Upon retiring, Frank sold the company to employee William Kull. The company was later acquired by Leblanc, then by Conn-Selmer in 2004, which continues Holton's tradition of creating outstanding brass instruments and accessories.
