:whistle:
Why so much american hornplayers prefer Conn- or Holton-Horns????
Sorry, but a lot of other horns are much more better. Is it tradition, do they really like the "Hollywood-sound" or do they buy it, because those Horns are cheap? Whats the reason?
Please, dont be angry for this question.......

Regards, Martin

I'm just a student, but as far as I know the prevalence of Conns is due to tradition, different sound concepts, and in my case familiarity and availability - the euro exchange rate isn't very favourable :unsure: Opportunities to try out different horns are somewhat limited for younger students - usually the only horns readily available are school-owned student-line Conns or Yamahas. (Taking a quick trip to Mainz to try out Alexanders or London to try Paxmans, for example, isn't really an option for most). I'm fortunate to be at a large school where there a few more opportunities. A handful of students here seem to favour Schmidts, allthough there are a few Lawsons, Hans Hoyers, and Paxmans floating around, in addition to several Conns, Yamahas, and Holtons.

Dear SEA,

of course, a trip to Mainz or London is not cheap an an Alexander isnt "the best in World".
In Germany a Holton Farkas or Merker is between 4000,- and 4500,- €. Thats "cheap", if you look to the prices of Schmid, Alex, Dürk or Hans Hoyer. The Hoyer DK 121 is arround 4200,- € if it is a "super value". A lot of Horns are to expensive for the value they offer! In Germany, Ricco Kühn Horns are one of the best offer you can buy! But all the Conns and Holtons are not easy to play - thats my experience. They need a lot of air, the intonation of the Bb-side is only good in its high register (a construction problem of all Kruspe/Horner models) and the workmanship is not the best. How much is e.g. a Holton Farkas in the States? And how much a Hoyer double?

I got a Conn because it was a good horn that didn't cost more than I wanted to pay and the sound is good. But then again I haven't really tried many horns but Conns are good horns.
