Conn Elkhart 4d K Series French Horn
I found 4d engraved near the mouth piece and serial number K68898 engraved around the rotor valves. I think one of the strings on the rotor valves is broken, but the other two appear to work fine. Included is a Vincent Bach 7 mouth piece. The case is included in this auction. The horn has some scratches here and there and maybe a couple of shallow dents. Overall it appears to be in excellent condition, but does show signs of normal use. The case does have some scratches and what looks to be white paint on the outside. I do not play an instrument so I cannot tell you the tone or verify how it sounds.
Here is some information I found on the web about a horn that looks a lot like this one (I cannot guarantee this information is accurate): If you know anything different please let me know.
