This is a Conn 8D Horn with a McCracken lead pipe. I believe it was manufactured in 1952.S/N - 398208
My parents bought this instrument for me years ago when I was in high school.I will admit that it has been sitting around for a while, butI recently oiled it and the keys seem to move smoothly and the valves came out fine.My parents bought it through my horn teacher and we were told that it has been professionally played: by someone in the New York Philharmonic, the Norwalk Symphony, and by Philip Farkas! I do not have any way of backing up any of that, though.The horn is almost 60 years old, so it is not in perfect condition. The nickel plating is gone in places and there is a dent on the horn right underneath where your left hand sits - but it is not on the lead pipe, it is on the bell. A photo of the dent has been included. I think the horn is in very good condition considering it's age.The case is in good condition and there is a gold mouthpiece for it.
I am setting the return policy to "Returns not accepted for this item". I do not mean to be shady, but I am moving overseas and do not have enough time left to put it up for offer again if there is a return.
