This 'Vintage' 8D (Conn V8D) is serial number 82. To list it as a 'used' horn is almost wrong. Don't get me wrong - it is used - but barely. There's not a dent on it. It's cherry! The Vintage series was created as a throw back to the Elkhart 8Ds of fame. If you're tired of trying out beat up Elkhart models - try this out.
