Comments about 8DS CONNstellation Series Double Horn:

I've had the 8DS for about a year now and I have loved every minute of playing it. It has a clear tone and speaks well in all registers, except for the low G - Bb range. Other issues I have are that my valves are rather slow, but oiling every single part, including the springs helps quite a bit. Also, the slides tend to dry and get stuck quickly, but weekly/bi-weekly applications of slide grease again clear up the problem. All in all, I believe this is a great horn for a great price that I would recommend to everyone, beginner, intermediate, proficient, or even professional.
