Comments about 8D CONNstellation Series Double Horn:

Ive been playing a Silver 8D in wind ensemble for 8 years and its never inhibited my growth as a musician. The silver one has a brighter sound then the other 2. The only problem Ive had with mine is the action on the B flat trigger is rather loud. I can play around with the screws to quiet it usually. it is a very responsive horn in all registers and works rather well in the high octave. This horn is a good buy for any level of player
