The Best of Old and New

Play the Conn 88HNV New Vintage Professional Trombone, and you’ll notice a unique combination of old-school sensibility married with performance-minded contemporary design elements. The 88HNV pays homage to the earliest Conn 88H horns with its vintage-style lightweight bell thickness. The 8.5-inch rose brass bell and main slide deliver a wonderfully vibrant and balanced tone that’s perfect for symphonic applications. In addition, this professional trombone has an open wrap F attachment for even tonal balance and a free-blowing feel. Beyond the exceptional Elkhart craftsmanship, the 88HNV New Vintage trombone comes with a 1-piece mechanical valve lever, a rosewood paddle, and a gorgeous bell engraving that honors every era of Conn’s history. With the 88HNV, Conn sets a new standard for contemporary professional trombone design. The C.G. Conn 88HNV trombone is officially the new vintage, and it’s available right here at Sweetwater.

Elkhart is famous for its vintage brass instruments. With the 88HNV, Conn returns to the tried-and-true design elements to deliver a new classic trombone. The master brasswind designers at Conn modeled the lightweight 8.5-inch rose brass bell after the finest vintage Conn trombones. This thinner design provides extra brilliance and resonance with fast, clear articulation across all registers. Finally, the Conn 88HNV has a breathtaking bell engraving with design elements from all four eras of Conn design. Between its sound and good looks, each 88HNV is a vintage heirloom that you can buy today.

Redesigned F attachment

For the 88HNV, Conn reimagined the open-wrap F attachment. This model’s F attachment fits within the main bell yet retains the free-blowing feel and balance of a non-attachment horn. The Conn 88HNV has a 0.547-inch primary bore that widens to a roomy 0.562 inches in the F attachment. With its larger bore and open-wrap design, this trombone eliminates playing resistance. What results from the dual-bore design is a playing experience that few other symphonic trombones can hope to match. The C.G. Conn 88HNV has a tapered rotor valve with a 1-piece mechanical linkage for solid and reliable triggering throughout the instrument’s life.

About C.G. Conn

Since its founding in 1915 by Charles Gerald Conn in Elkhart, Indiana, the C.G. Conn brand has been synonymous with high-quality brass instruments. Even today, the company’s most popular models — the Conn 8D French horn, 88H trombone, 62H bass trombone, 52BSP trumpet, and 1FR flugelhorn — command respect. At Sweetwater, we stand behind Conn horns given their tremendous response, outstanding projection, and one-of-a-kind sonic qualities.
