Based on the 1937-1957 design of the Elkhart 8D, the Vintage 8D offers custom stress free assembly and vintage design to create a versatile instrument throughout all registers. The lightweight, annealed bell provides response and tone charactarisitcs similar to that of Elkhart-built 8D's - large, dark orchestral sound and quick response. These qualities are further enhanced by the annealed mouthpipe and first branch. Parts are assembled as "stress-free" as possible by focusing attention on component fit. This process is aided with the use of multiple-piece bracing that ensures precise fit while at the same time, minimizes tension. Other classic elements include soldered-on bead rings and vintage style rotor caps that help distinguish this horn.
