Rose Brass Bell And Slide

Much of the Conn 88H Trombone has been made from Rose Brass, which is a metal that gives a deeper and richer sound that it counterpart yellow brass. Once finished in a clear lacquer, the resultant sound is extremely symphonic and almost horn like. This makes the instrument great for blending in to an orchestra.

Large Bore and Bell Diameter

The large 0.547" bore on the Conn 8H makes the instrument very easy to blow and there is very little resistance in the instrument. This is perfect for creating large amounts of volume through the instrument. The large 8.5" bell makes the instrument sound mellow and dark, but with a very clear tone.

Closed Wrap F Attachment

The F attachment is extremely useful to the professional standard player. Not only does it give scope for the pedal notes of the instrument, but it also makes the notorious 6th and 7th position on the slide easy with the push of the trigger. This helps with intonation and faster passages. The closed wrap design also gives more resistance, which is generally preferred on the attachment, and also is less prone to damage than its counterpart open system.

Included Accessories

The Conn 88H Trombone also comes with a hard wooden frame case which provides excellent protection for the instrument and makes transporting the trombone to concerts and rehearsals extremely easy. The Conn 8H also comes with a 5G mouthpiece that has been made specifically for the instrument.


"The Conn 88H is the best trombone made." York Born Ian Bousfield, Principal Trombone, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

"The Conn 88H is a good sounding, flexible, easy-to-play horn. The slide action is better than ever and the trigger range speaks well. Conn has recreated a classic." Bill Reichenbach, Los Angeles Stage and Studio Artist
