The difference between these two types is what I surmised to be the problem. An H179 is a nickel, large throat and would be comparable to the Conn 8D.

Oh I didn't mean to say H178, it's in fact a 177. But now having checked I realise that's also a medium bore horn. You're right I must have been thinking of the 179. Ugh model numbers can get confusing!
