An intermediate double horn that borrows pro features for inspiring sound.

The CHR512 double horn brings professional-level tone and playability to advancing musicians. Featuring the same leadpipe and mouthpiece receiver as Conn's flagship 8D, the 512 produces a balanced, open sound that requires minimal effort to achieve. Its Kruspe-wrap design and small throat bell provide excellent pitch control and projection for nuanced performances.

Iconic Conn Leadpipe and Receiver

At the heart of the 512's impressive sound is the leadpipe and mouthpiece receiver from Conn's renowned 8D double horn. Machined with meticulous precision, these components create an unrestricted airflow for richness, warmth and tonal clarity. The leadpipe's tapered shape also promotes ideal balance and response, allowing you to play with poise and control.

Premium Rotary Valves for Smooth Action

The 512's string linkage rotary valves provide a light, quick action essential for rapid passages and trills. Their tapered shapes and close tolerances enable a seamless seal for accurate intonation and timbre. A mechanical fourth valve allows tuning to either F or Bb, adapting the horn to any performance needs.

Adjustable Finger Hook for Comfort

An adjustable finger hook gives you customized hand placement for reduced fatigue over long practice sessions and performances. Its articulating design can be set to the optimal position for your hand size and playing style. The security and comfort provided by the finger hook allows you to focus on your technique and expression.

Timeless Design with Modern Playability

With a lacquered brass body and fixed bell, the 512 exudes a classic double horn aesthetic while incorporating contemporary design elements for playability. Its medium-large throat and .476" bore strike a balance between tonal focus and free-blowing response. An ebony fingerboard provides a smooth surface for agile fingering. Whether you aspire to perform with a professional orchestra or in a concert band, the 512 will satisfy your artistic needs for years to come.
