Comments about Conn Vintage 8D Series Double Horn:

The Conn 8D is truly a professional horn players horn. Whether you play it forte fortissimo are triple pianissimo (so quiet that I can no longer hear it), it will reward you with its beautiful, resonant tone.
If just starting out on this horn, you may be surprised that you can not hit your top 2 notes, as it has a large bore which you must fill with your bellows (lungs).As you adjust your breathing and practice more with it, you will again recover your range. This instrument for a double horn is quite light and as such take care not to dent your horn close to the bell. Forcefully pulling on valve tubes (while bracing against the bell) can cause the bell to collapse and form a wrinkle in the metal (guess how I know!).
Truly a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, this instrument will last you a lifetime if you take care of it (unlike so many electronic gadgets nowadays which have extended warranties).

Real Big Horn

By Dmitry-_Oyld

from Rostov, Rusisa

Comments about Conn Vintage 8D Series Double Horn:

I am playing for 10 years on Conn 8DR. Before it I had Hanz Hoyer. I am satisfied of my horn entirely- it has big wide singing sound. I play both Opera and Ballet, First and third parts. One thing- it takes a lot of breath. I spend an air like a jet fan and the horn never tells me "Enough!" and plays FFFF without flatter.

Conn gets it right.

By Michael-3bv1s

from Chicago IL

Comments about Conn Vintage 8D Series Double Horn:

Evidently, the folks at Conn finally got the message from the people buying Yamahas, Hoyers, Pattersons, etc., who were looking for a great Kruspe-wrap horn that simply played well out of the box. Now, instead of: spending thousands on an old 8D, then repairing it; or, spending thousands on a new 8D, then even more to get it to play well; you can just get this instrument and go to work. It has a great sound, terrific pitch, and a wide pallet of colors, plus, everything fits and works properly.
