    - How long have you use it?
    For about six months, before I played on a Courtois 400 Prestige Symphony for ten years.
    - What is so special that you like most and least?
    The first quality that comes to mind is her without hesitation. Indeed, the big bore coupled to copper pink flag gives it a warm and round throughout the range. In addition copper pink flag and outer branches of the slide, brass circuit F and the different parts silver gives it a unique look, class! As for the negatives, nothing to report at this time except that the varnish from the tip of the valve is very quickly attacked by sweating, a trifle ...

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    I tried several models, including Bach 42 and Yamaha Xeno series but I must say I had a crush on the 88 H.
    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    At about 2000 euros, it starts to do! However, the quality is indeed the appointment and it is a pleasure to play such an instrument.
    - With experience, you do again this choice?
    Without hesitation, yes!

    Conn 88h-oPublished on 08/23/11 at 13:31
    The Conn 88h 0 is a great Trombone, Conn has always put out a quality instrument. This Trombone feels and looks beautiful. Has a really nice feel to it when you are holding it in play position, the slider feels great and is very easy to slide and still has some weight to it. The downside of this Trombone from Conn is that the price is high. No one likes high prices on any equipment but sometimes you have to put money out in order to get the quality instrumental that you need and that you deserve to have. I suggest saving the money up for this on rather than settling for a lower model or off brand Trombone that isn’t going to be as stable as this one is.

    The sound that the Conn 88h O produces is a beautiful horn low end sound. Its perfect harmony! Not a marching band Trombone sound, but more like a orchestral Trombone that you would hear on stage. It sounds the best when its played in an auditorium rather than outside, just because of the way sound travels. The thing that I like the most about this Trombone from Conn is the feel of it, it has a nice solid brass feel that is very light but still has some solid weight to it, and the slider has the perfect feel to it so you can reach all of the notes you are playing quickly with such a solid slider.

    Overall the Conn 88H 0 Trombone is the way to go, this horn will last you for a long time and you will be able to polish your skills. They say that this isn’t for the beginners, only reason is because of the price. I say you can get the money together for this Trombone get it! No matter what your playing level is.

    This is a phenomenal trombone. It is made by Conn, who are a great trombone manufacturer. They've been making quality trombones for intermediate to professional players for a long time and have a great reputation. This is a tenor trombone that has a great sound. One of my favorite features of this trombone is that it isn't too heavy on the low end. Thus, you tend to not get the extremely brassy, low end sound that is the common idea of a trombone. This instrument is great for players with a lot of technique and range. It sounds great for long legato passages, has a very smooth glissando, and the slide operates like a dream, assuming you keep it in shape. Tone wise It actually tends to stray…

One of my favorite features of this trombone is that it isn't too heavy on the low end. Thus, you tend to not get the extremely brassy, low end sound that is the common idea of a trombone. This instrument is great for players with a lot of technique and range. It sounds great for long legato passages, has a very smooth glissando, and the slide operates like a dream, assuming you keep it in shape. Tone wise It actually tends to stray away from the abrasive, unless you deliberately are trying to accentuate that aspect of the instrument. For the most part, assuming the player knows what they are doing, the horn is smooth and rich, sounding pleasant and melodic without getting too much noise. I found that playing parts for concert band and a jazz big band on this trombone were equally impressive. This demonstrates the enormous range of the instrument. I didn't want to put this down the first time I started playing it, mainly because it was so superior to my original trombone. The only issue I found with this trombone was the price, even though I saw it on sale, it was over two thousand dollars. I would almost always opt for buying it used if possible, it'll still be really expensive but I think that the quality will still be the same and it's the best way to afford this instrument. I don't know who is buying new trombones these days (except for maybe schools and institutions of that nature) but I certainly can't. If you can realistically afford this, definitely look into it, it's a high quality instrument.
