C.G. Conn Model V8D 'Vintage 8D' Professional Double French Horn SN 000202
Here's a MINT Conn V8D Vintage 8D professional double French horn. WOW!
Designed after the legendary 'Elkhart' 8Ds of the 1950s and 1960s, the V8D returns to the original 8D design with a lightweight bell for greater resonance, string linkages, and exquisite attention to detail. Every single one of these instruments is handmade-to-order, and you are looking at a wait of months to get one as well as a price tag almost double my price. This particular instrument is in perfect condition. It is ostensibly a demo model, but I see no signs that it has ever been played (though there are a few scuffs on the case.)
C.G. Conn "Vintage" - Key of F/Bb, .468" bore, Kruspe wrap, 12-1/4" lightweight annealed large throat nickel silver bell, nickel silver branches and slide tubes, annealed first branch and mouthpipe, tapered rotors and bearings, all string linkages, hand lapped slides and rotors, extra long 2nd Bb slide pull ring, reconfigured 1st Bb slide crook, soldered-on outside tube bead rings, two push-button waterkeys, brass vintage style engraved rotor caps, clear lacquer finish.
