Equip your aspiring horn player with a Conn 14D, a single horn that allows players to learn the F side of the horn before advancing to a standard double F/Bb horn. This horn is more lightweight and less complicated than its double horn counterparts, making it ideal for beginning students. Moreover, it offers excellent sound and balanced playability, and it will tolerate the rigors of daily use. The 14D's tapered leadpipe gives it outstanding response and intonation, and its wrap ensures comfortable hand positioning and ultra-smooth airflow. Similarly, this horn's tapered valves provide long-wearing performance without air leakage. The 14D's clear lacquer finish not only lends an enjoyable warmth to every note you play, but it also imbues this horn with a shiny, polished look that stands out during ensemble performances. If you're searching for a lightweight, easy-to-handle French horn, you can't go wrong with the Conn 14D.
