Other Details: This is a Conn "Vintage" 8D with Screw Bell (V8DS) in very good cosmetic and mechanical condition. This V8D plays well and is being offered at a bargain price compared to most other "Vintage" 8D models listed, not to mention brand new ones. It served me well throughout high school and I've gotten a new one for studying music performance in college. This horn features two Amado-style water keys and an adjustable pinky hook. There is scuffing in mostly normal places, such as on the bottom of the bell pipe and on the screw ring as a result of pulling out the third Bb valve slide, but the lacquer is still at ≈95%. There are also a few minor scratches (including one on the inside of the bell flare) and small stains from solder repairs. The horn could potentially benefit from a professional cleaning on the inside and on some of the slides. It includes Conn's V8D Screw Bell Case which is a great added value.
