French Horn/Accent HR 781L

Question
You wrote in 2011 that you bought an Accent French Horn. How did you like it? I found one for sale, I'm not sure of the model, they want $1000 for it but I've been unable to find very much info on them.  How did you like it?  Thanks

Answer
Hi, it was one of my correspondents who bought the Accent horn, he thought it was better built than some of the other Chinese-made instruments he had tried (he buys a lot of horns...) but couldn't compare in sound and ease of response to a "proper" horn like a Holton or Yamaha. Personally I'd save my $1000 and look for something not made in China.
