This Conn Schmidt model is great candidate for a student looking to buy their first horn. It is made of lacquered yellow brass and has many bonuses on it. There is a leather hand strap tied on, which in tandem with an adjustable duck foot and adjustable pinky hook provide a comfortable grip for players with all different sizes of left hands. There is an additional leather wrap on the "top" (see pictures) of the horn to help prevent lacquer deterioration. The levers have dimes soldered on for better grip, and the signature piston valve is both easy to reach and moves fluidly. The valve compression is at about 3.2.
The horn also comes with a plastic, detachable, jealousy-inducing pencil clip! Compatible with both wooden and mechanical pencils, this horn comes with the guarantee that no conductor can yell at you for not being able to mark in your music. The double-U (or "W") design has been engineered to provide the hornist with a writing utensil without affecting sound or intonation. Additional pencil clips could be added if desired, and are for sale on our website.
Also comes with a red, fixed bell Thompson Edition horn case.
