This superb Hoyer horn was designed

collaboratively by two legendary USA players,

Myron Bloom and Vince de Rosa, as a worthy

(and in many ways superior) successor to the

much-sought-after 'Elkhart' Conn 8D.


NB: if this were my horn I would definitely

have a water key (or better still, a JOY-KEY or

two) fitted. I find it inexplicable that a

professional-quality horn such as this doesn't

have this very necessary performance aid

already installed as a standard feature.
