CONNstellation - F/Bb .468" (11.89mm) bore, 12-1/4" (311mm) large throat bell, all nickel silver, tapered rotors and bearings, fully mechanical change valve, adjustable levers, lacquer finish, 7BW mouthpiece, plastic hardshell case. Full five year warranty.

Through the early part of the 10th century, Conn instruments continued to be popular with professional orchestras. In the late 1930s, Conn developed a new French horn that has linked the Conn name with professional double horns to this day: the CONNstellation Model 8D.

The 8D is a large-throat, all-nickel horn designed in the Krüspe style, with the change valve positioned in front of the rotor cluster.

The CONNstellation 8D is the most listened-to horn in the world. It remains the horn of choice in the Los Angeles recording studios, a favored position it has held since the beginning of the modern movie industry. Its rich, full tone can be controlled even at dynamic extremes, one quality that continually makes the 8D the clear choice of leading orchestral horn players. It offers impeccable response, flexibility, reliability and undoubted professional status.

The Conn 8D has been in circulation for decades and decades, and it's obvious why it's still popular even to this day. It's got a classic and versatile french horn tone and it is built to last. Intonation is considered good by modern standards, and the fit and finish is very nice. Overall it's a great investment that will take a player far in their career.

There is no other horn that even compares to the Conn 8D! The sound is full and round and and the feel of this instrument in your hands is incredible. I am completely in love with the traditional all nickel-silver build and beautiful engravings. This is my forever horn!
