Designed as an homage to the vintage Conn 88H, the classic sound and feel of early Elkhart models was combined with modern day features and design to create a stunning example of balance and beauty.
The 88HNV rejuvenates the classic vintage era trombone starting with the traditional rose brass bell, which is modeled after the bell weights from prime early examples. The unique valve wrap provides the balance and feel of traditional vintage models, but utilizes a modern approach to the open wrap design. This helps to create an even balance throughout the entire range. Other features include an updated valve lever and rosewood thumb paddle, creating a more ergonomic feel.
The stunning new engraving weaves through four eras of Conn history. The chrome plated nickel silver handslide tubes in combination with the standard rose brass outer material provide a warm resonant sound and smooth action.
