This horn is an excellent option for those in the market for a Kruspe wrap. The valve compression reads at 0.1 (perfect, like new) and the horn has all original Conn parts. except for 2 Amado water keys installed on the leadpipe and F tuning slide. Cosmetically, the lacquered nickel silver is in near perfect condition with only a couple of light scratches inside the detachable bell (where nobody but you will see anyway). It has very good response in all ranges and at varying dynamics, which is contradictory to some of the common issues hornists have with 8Ds. Try this one out today! Comes with a Conn detachable bell horn case.
