Conn 8D, 1961, Elkhart Nickel Silver French Horn & Case in Fort Wayne, Indiana

You
are bidding on a well used 1961 (Elkhart) Conn 8D French Horn with a Conn hard
case.  It is currently professionally
being played. Its serial number is 910269, it has the mechanical change valve,
tapered rotors and the bell is engraved “C.G. CONN LTD. ELKHART-IND.USA.”.These
are all attributes of an Elkhart built horn.

 This
horn has seen much use which is obvious in its appearance. The original lacquer finish
has many defects as would be expected for an over 60 year old horn. It has some
dents and dings, which every effort has been taken to show in the attached photos.

The
horn does have a bell patch at the bell brace. Also there is a small crack at
the same location on the opposite side of the patch.  (See Photos for details) These do not at all affect the playability of
the horn. All valves and slides move freely. The horn plays easy in all
registers.

 Included
is a Conn hard case, that is in very good condition, and a generic mouthpiece.Please carefully look at all photos.
 Continental U.S shipping
only via USPS. No shipping outside of the continental U.S. on this item.
 Good
luck and thank you very much for bidding.
