This has been an exciting year for trombone design developments and Conn continued the trend this week with an introduction of their new 88HNV New Vintage large bore tenor trombone! We have been hearing about this model for a few years and were excited about the prospects but, now being able to experience it in person, it has exceeded our expectations!

As an homage to the vintage Conn 88H, the classic sound and feel of early Elkhart models were combined with modern-day features to create a stunning example of balance and beauty. The 88HNV rejuvenates the iconic vintage-era trombone starting with the traditional rose brass bell, which is modeled after the bell weight from Emory Remington's original 88H.  The unique valve wrap provides the balances and feel of traditional vintage models but utilizaes a modern approach to the open wrap design.  This helps to create an evenness throughout the entire range.  Other features include an updated valve lever and rosewood thumb paddle, creating a more ergonomic feel.  The stunning new engraving weaves through four eras of Conn history.  The chrome-plated nickel-silver handslide tubes in combination with the standard rose brass outer material provides a warm resonant sound and smooth action.  The 88HNV is coupled with a modern style lightweight case featuring a slim profile, elegant design, and stowaway backpack straps.  Made in the USA in Elkhart, Indiana.
