For sale is a very nice Conn 8D double French horn. This particular instrument stands out among the 8Ds in my shop when it comes to sound and playability. It has a very sweet, smooth, warm sound that projects well. Soft playing on this horn is very easy, but at the same time, this horn is capable of taking very powerful playing and not being overblown. The high register sings and is easily in tune and the low register is full, powerful, and clean. It sounds and plays like a classic 8D should.


While not an Elkhart-made horn, this Eastlake model plays much like an Elkhart. There have clearly been some modifications to the horn, such as an aftermarket cut bell and stripped lacquer. I'm confident, however, that this horn has undergone some other work making it far superior to similar 8Ds.


This horn comes with a 'duck foot' flipper installed. It is in very good condition, and provides comfort and ease while playing.


Included is a used, but very nice ProTec Screw bell case. No mouthpiece is included, but a standard, nice mouthpiece can be included with the purchase if requested.


Feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
