OVERVIEW

Classic trombone design revisited and updated.

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.

    Comments about Conn 88HO Symphony Series F Attachment Trombone:

    I played an 88H in high school and college. About 12 years ago, I bought an 88HO from WWBW. The trombone plays as great today as it did when it was new. I love the way it plays and sounds.

    Amazing Sound

    Comments about Conn 88HO Symphony Series F Attachment Trombone:

    I've been playing trombone for a while and had to buy a new more professional bore model to accommodate my air and tone. I tried out about 6 different trombones and ended up narrowing it down between two models the Bach 42 and the Conn 88H. After several times playing the same thing on both instruments, I decided to go with the Conn. Its tone was much warmer than the Bach IMHO. Of course, this is my preference. To find out which you like better, you need to play 'em, But know that if you choose the Conn, you will NOT be disappointed.

    the 88HO

    By 

    from Northville, MI

    Comments about Conn 88HO Symphony Series F Attachment Trombone:

    i've had this horn for over a year and it is one of the best, if not the best production tenors on the market. you can get the perfect mile-wide sound that the rest of the section (mostly bach 42s) can't produce, but then again this horn can also handle orchestral textures very well. the rose brass bell can sound very rich, but still cut through as well as the yellow ones. it doesn't break up, and is very colorful. surprisingly great to fill in on 4th and 5th bass trombone in jazz band, as it can peel paint off walls. i have it with the standard weight rose brass bell and i'm not too fond of lightweight bells on my horns.

    Comments about Conn 88HO Symphony Series F Attachment Trombone:

    Dont get a Holton or King or Bach. i have played all the "so called best trombones" along with some of the best musicians in the world. the sound from any Conn 88H trombone will show itself its the best. its great to start out with and to end with. i got this as a gift from my father as child just starting. if you know what your talking about then get this Tbone you wont regret it. from the perfectly warmed tone to the sheer design of this horn. i love mine, im sure you'll love it also
