Conn 8D Elkhart – Serial #: 872393
Conn 8D horns have been a fixture in the horn world for decades as one of the most popular and most recorded horns in history. The Conn 8D maintains a design that makes the horn very responsive and free-blowing with excellent tonal balance. Its traditional large throat bell and all-nickel construction give a beautiful, dark sound with rich depth.
An Elkhart Conn 8D is the most sought-after 8D, as these horns were manufactured at the Elkhart, Indiana plant between 1937 and 1969 and are regarded as being made with the best quality and craftsmanship. One important distinction in the Elkhart 8Ds are their tapered rotors, which improve the longevity and overall performance of the valve.
“This 8D Elkhart is in great shape–plays exactly how I would expect a horn of this vintage to play. If you’re looking for the big, sweeping horn sound from the older movie soundtracks, this is the horn for you! Don’t miss out on owning your own Elkhart.”
