Conn 6D Intermediate French Horn - yellow brass and nickel silver
The story of the Conn 6D begins in the early 1920s with the introduction of the original "6-D" model. Equipped with a piston change valve in the "Schmidt" style, this 6-D was Conn’s first double horn. The 6D was revised in 1935 with a rotary change valve to much acclaim, quickly becoming "…the favorite of big symphony players."
The next generation 6D takes the critical mouthpipe, first branch, and bell tapers of the historic 6D and pairs them with the chassis of the iconic Conn 8D. The switch to the durable nickel-silver Kruspe-wrap chassis of the 8D brings many of the construction advances to the 6D, including revised manufacturing processes, acoustic enhancements, and ergonomic improvements.
