Conn 11DES Osmun Blueprinted Double Horn

Conn Selmer

Call for Pricing 978-823-0580

The Conn 11DES with Osmun Blueprinting is a union of two great traditions. The Conn french horns have been a dependable choice of instrument for decades and Osmun Music has been a trusted source of repairing horns since the 1980's. We have taken our Blueprinting service that has been popular with Bach trumpets and brought it over to the french horn world.

The 11DE has a medium throat which provides control and focus of sound which helps in chamber, solo, and orchestral settings.  It is slightly more open playing than the 10DE version.  This horn features a Geyer style wrap with a more open style F branch which helps open up the sound.  An adjustable finger hook helps the performer be comfortable while performing.  This horn also features vintage style valve caps and dual water keys.

Case and mouthpiece included.

Made in the USA.

What is Blueprinting? 

Blueprinting is a process that we have developed to enhance each instrument that we work on to perform as the highest example of its make and model. Most instruments today are built in factories that use assembly lines to keep costs low. This can lead to small oversights in the finish product and creating deviations from one instrument to the next. Our Blueprinting service puts the extra labor and time into an instrument to make it the best it can be as it was initially designed. Much like when a guitar player brings a newly purchased guitar to his trusted luthier to set up, Blueprinting assures our customers that they bought a great instrument that will give them peak performance.

Here is a partial list of things included in a french horn Blueprinting:

-Check solder joints and remove excess solder

-Adjust rotor end play

-Add water key to mouthpipe

-Adjust mouthpiece receiver engagement

-Adjust slide action

-Drill oil ports in the stop plates

-Measure and adjust slide lengths

FAQ: Can Blueprinting be done to my existing horn? -Yes it can! Call or email us for pricing anytime.
