Conn 6D Double French Horn

Nearly new, Perfect for the advancing student or recreational player

For your consideration I offer this 6D French horn Made by C.G. Conn Ltd. Key of F/Bb. Brass with nickel-silver trim. Original clear-lacquer finish. Bore size is .468". 12" small-throat yellow brass bell. Tapered rotors and bearings. I estimate that it was built within the last few years.

CONDITION: This instrument is in superb physical condition, nearly new. It shows few signs of being played. There are a few scratches and small dings from use, but no significant dents. I've done my best to show the dings in the pictures. The original clear-lacquer finish is 100% intact. Everything works as it's supposed to--all slides and caps are free, rotors are fast and tight. This is the perfect instrument for an advancing student player. It is sold AS-IS with no warranties. See pictures.

PLAYING QUALITIES: It plays very well. It speaks easily with a warm, compact tone. Intonation is very good--this is a proven design that has been in continuous production since the 1930s. I wouldn't hesitate to take it on a gig. NOTE that I make no representations made about its suitability for your intended use. WYSIWYG.

ACCESSORIES: Sold with original case, and Yamaha 29C4 mouthpiece. See pictures; WYSIWYG.

THE STRAIGHT DOPE: This nearly-new Conn 6D would be perfect for a recreational player, advancing horn student, or school music program. These will cost you about $3,400 new; you can own this beautiful example for less than 60% of that price. All sales FINAL, cash and carry, IN PERSON. I'll be happy to answer any questions about the instrument itself.

ATTENTION SCAMMERS: I've seen it all. NO bank drafts; NO "agents"; NO meeting you at some parking lot; NO text messages; NO blind Gmail addresses. I may have been born at night, but it wasn't LAST NIGHT.

All you nice honest folks out there in Craigslistland, please contact me if you have an interest in this instrument. I'll be glad to email/text more pics and details. Thanks for looking!
