Built in Eastlake, OH plant. Nickel Silver construction, lacquer finish. Includes hard shell case. This horn plays very nicely. The cosmetic condition is very good (some lacquer wear along back side of upper bell curve and leadpipe – see photo). Mechanical condition is excellent. Tapered rotors! Valve compression is very good at 2.5. There are only a few very minor dings – never any major damage. This was the owner’s backup horn, so has not been played much, but has been maintained.
The Conn 8D has been the go to workhorse for years in major orchestras and commercial recordings. The model has a big sound and offers good control and intonation.
