All Holton French Horns, including the single and double models, feature valve rotors that are tapered. This is so that as the valve wears, it automatically seats itself. This includes the bearing surfaces axles on each end of the valve and the bearing plates. All Holton French Horn bells are made with overlapped seams. This is much more durable than one made with a butt seam. It also produces a better tone and timbre. This is one of the outstanding characteristics on which Holton USA French Horns developed its reputation.
Wear & Tear Observations: This instrument is in a fair/well used condition, and is showing a lot of lacquer wear. It has denting and scratching to be expected of a used instrument. The valves work well, smoothly and quietly and all tuning slides move smoothly.
