This C.G. Conn 8D double french horn is in very good condition with 20% or less of its lacquered finish remaining. The only lacquer that is remaining on the horn is on the valve cluster, the rest of the horn is in a raw brass finish. This horn has had dent removal throughout the bow into the bell.  The bell has a metal patch next to the bell brace.  The bell brace has a patch as well.  The dent removal was quite successful. You can feel the dent removal in the bow but it looks great! The bell edge has just a very minor wave in it. Please see pictures for more details. The serial number on the french horn is “406312” making this a vintage 1952 horn.  The engraving on the bell reads “C.G. Conn LTD. U.S.A.”. This french horn comes in a good used condition case.  No mouthpiece is included.  This double french horn sits comfortably under the fingers.  The valves are nice and quiet with good action. It sounds great playing from top to bottom!
