Further details: it is generally recognised that the finest Elkhart Conn 8Ds (apart from the 'pre-alphabet' ones) were the series E and H. This 'series H' horn was totally refurbished and re-lacquered quite recently in the Walter Lawson workshop, USA.

It plays superbly across the entire range, not just the low and middle registers! Also, it is very light in weight compared to a typical modern Conn 8D.

NNB: Price comparison: the lowest brand-new UK discount price for this horn is currently £5,198.
