Question
Is this serial number a Holton serial number. 704388 on the third valve of a Double French Horn.  I am looking to buy it, if it is a Holton, and don't know how to tell if it is, or what the numbers mean.

Thank-you Cindy

Answer
Hi, Holtons do have the serial on the 3rd valve and this would be a pretty recent one, made in about 2006-2007. There should be a model number, H and 3 digits, on the leadpipe. For a more positive identification send me a photo or a link to one...
