FS: Conn 8H - 1970's *SOLD*

Post by snieckarz » Fri Nov 08, 2019 9:54 am

Hello hello,

This is a horn I forgot I had. I don't play it, so no need to keep it. Conn 8H from the 1970's (serial GK4700**). Comes in a mint 6H case with the keys still attached to the handle. The bell block was removed to fit the 8H, but is with the case if you want to use it as a 6H case again. Throwing in also a vintage Conn 4 mouthpiece.

As you'll see in the photos, misc. small pings in the bell. Just some light lacquer loss in two small areas. On the inner stockings two tiny spots of wear. The slide moves freely and very playable as is. There is a small ping midway down the outer slide.

Playability, this is a very responsive 8H. Good range throughout. Has a sweet, brighter tone versus an Elkhart 8H. Jazz horn? Sure! Small ensemble playing? Cool! Big gigantic symphonic music like Bruckner symphonies? Probably not. Mozart or Brahms would work!

Price is $850 USD with shipping in the lower 48 States included, payment by Paypal. I will sell internationally but would need to calculate shipping before final price. Message with questions or interests. Thanks!
