Conn 88HO Symphony Series F Attachment Trombone

The Conn 88HO Symphony Series trombone is part of the second generation of the pro classic Conn 88H Symphony Series.

The Conn 88HO Symphony Series F Attachment Trombone offers the pro level player an instrument designed for the demands of new literature. The 88HO Series features a .547-inch primary bore combined with a .562-inch bore, as does the original 88H Series, but with an open wrap F attachment plus a bell taper that continues to offer the same outstanding clarity and projection as its predecessor. The Conn 88HO Symphony Series F Attachment Trombone includes a case and mouthpiece and is available with standard rose brass bell (88HO), thin-wall rose brass bell (88HTO), yellow brass bell (88HYO), 9-inch Rose Brass bell (88HKO), Sterling silver bell (88HSO) and Sterling silver bell with silver finish and gold trim (88HOSGX).

After being introduced by C.G. Conn in 1954, the 88H has remained in continuous production since its introduction, a record that is unequaled by any other American symphonic trombone. In the 1990's, changes in musical tastes and literature requirements brought about the development of the second-generation 88H, the 88HO Symphonic Series. The 88HO offers an open wrap F attachment for a free blowing attachment with less resistance that the standard 88H. The 88HO also brought about the 88HKO, which offers a 9" bell compared to the 8.5" bells of the series. This larger throat bell offers the player additional resonance and projection for the demands of today's music.

Conn 88HO w/ Rose Brass Bell

By Tim B. from Portland, Maine on 1/31/2014 8:50:05 PM

This horn is just a joy to play. The sound is warm and round while still being clean. Paired with a Schilke 51 mouthpiece, it's hard to beat, and the projection is great. I've tried other symphonic trombones and there is just something about the Conn 88HO that gives it a distinctive sound that still blends well with others.

Excellent Horn for the Advanced H.S. and College Student

By Brien B. from Pikeville, NC on 4/18/2012 11:34:33 AM

I have owned my Horn now for 6 years and could not be happier with it. It produces a rich and mellow tone that is unmistakable. The F Attachment is adjustable. I have been playing now for close to 27 years and this is my best playing horn yet. I highly recommend it for the Advanced H.S. student and encourage those that plan on majoring in Music in college to get this horn. It will really open up your sound compared with the student model horns on the market.
