Secondhand Double Horn

C.G CONN *8D ‘Vintage’ Series

This instrument arrived at Artisan Horns in good condition, however it was lacking in the famous CONN 8D full and dark sound, with issues in the upper register, where some notes were not slotting into place.

The horn was subsequently customised and fitted with Artisan Horns AH1 mouth pipe, which not only opened out the sound to the expected 8D tone; the upper register notes now slot precisely. The lower middle and lower registers are also more open, but with a more focused front, allowing for clear piano and full bodies fortissimo sounds to be played with ease.

The horn is un-laquered and in excellent condition. Valves were serviced at the point of customisation.
