I want to play horn but I’m banned from all schools in my county.

My band took a trip to Chicago last Thursday and it took us 12 hours to get there, during that time the school decided to cancel our trip and we ended up spending less than a day there (which was supposed to last 4 days). Well, on our way back they decided we weren’t allowed to enter any school in the county until April 6th. My horn was still in the building along with some other things I’d definitely have; but, never the less, I can’t get to it.

I Want To Learn The French Horn...

I’ve been wanting to play the French horn for a few years now. I’ve been playing piano for 3 years and is on RCM lvl 3. I am really good at the clarinet, and is mostly self-thought. My dad was a semi-professional trumpet player before we immigrated to Canada. I found a cheap piccolo French horn online that costs less than $300. I also attend cadets, which means I have access to summer training and can learn to play there. How should I learn? Should I play the piccolo French horn? Any advice helps. Thanks in advance.

P.S. my mom hasn’t taken well to the idea of buying another instrument. What can I do to convince her?

Help determining french horn specifics with serial number?

Hi all -

I am in the early stages of listing my used french horn (CONN 8D) for sale online. Very quickly I've realized that the world of french horn valuation and specifically the history of manufacture of CONN 8Ds is way more nuanced than I anticipated...so now for a few hours I've been reading article after article about it, and I've been looking at several lists of serial numbers to figure out what year/where my instrument was manufactured in order to determine its value. The serial number on my horn seems to be missing from all of these lists, so now I'm just confused...

Can someone help me determine the year of manufacture of my CONN 8D french horn with the serial number? The serial number is 157088.

Thank you!

Looking for a French Horn

Hi there. Some back story: I'm currently a college freshman in my second semester. I'm not a music major but rather a Microbiology major. I played French horn for 5 years and Violin for 7 years all through senior year of high school. When I moved away for college I left my instruments behind. Lately I've felt like part of me is missing. I miss being a musician so bad it hurts. I joined my University choir last semester buts it's just not the same. I wanna play French horn again. I have my own violin but since I rented my horn through my high school I don't have one. I want to try to rent a horn on my own but I've never shopped for one before.

TL; DR I want to play the French horn again but I don't know how to shop for one. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Is it possible that my horn is defective?

I recently got back into playing horn after six years and my family bought me a brand new horn (yeah I know poor financial choice). It's been coming back to me really fast but no matter what I do, I'm sharp. I can hear the correct note in my head, sing the note correctly, then even buzz the note correctly but then when I play it through the horn, even with the tuning slide pulled out ridiculously far, I'm still sharp. My teacher checked my embouchure and I don't seem to be doing anything strange, but he still recommended that I practice with a drone, trying to change my embouchure by opening it up. I feel like I'm opening every part of my mouth and body as far as I possibly can and it's still an absolute fight to get the notes anywhere close to in tune.

Am I going crazy or is there something wrong with this horn?

Edit: also, we switched to a larger mouthpiece and no dice. The horn is a Yamaha YHR-567. New mouthpiece is a farkus MDC

Advice: How long should a beginner horn dedicate their time to practicing?

Hi, it's me again. I admit I have been just starting out and after burnt out finals week. I realized I haven't been practicing much, taking a huge troll on everything I have learnt.

I have band for 45 minutes mon-fri. And I have homework to do but since it's after the big semester tests, and all, I'm finally free now. So Im trying to get a practice schedule in which I will improve. So far I practice an hour on weekends but I haven't this week cause of family related stuff.

May I ask for tips and advice for beginning horn players practicing schedule? I'm trying to put myself on one. Also I'm my abilities to learn is very slow. But I'm willing to do it for band.

Possibly buying a new horn, need advice!

I've always heard about the "legendary" Conn 8d's from Elkhart. I got to play a 900 series about a year ago at my local music shop, but it was an employee's personal horn and not for sale. Loved the way it played and sounded. Anyway, an opportunity arose on eBay, a supposed 1967 Conn 8d, k series (k35xxx).

I don't know much about the k series. The one in question is listed for "buy it now" 2800, but the lacquer is in pretty rough condition and from the pictures, only a few small dents are noticed. Are the k series still as "legendary" as people make them seem? Would it be worth the cost to buy it, given it might need more repairs other than a re-lacquer? I'm awaiting more info about any other damage. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

How can I make an old horn shiny again?

My school is going to give me a double horn in a few weeks(I’ve been renting a single horn) and the horn they’re going to give me is old and not very shiny anymore. It works okay, just needs a little oil on the valves, but it isn’t very shiny, and I’m not really sure how to make it shinier without damaging it. I’ve only been playing horn for a few months, so I’m not well versed on how to care for it and such. Any advice would be much appreciated!

The Sergeant physically attacks SO on Christmas Eve. Meanwhile, I Grow Horns and Hooves.

TW: Violence and threats of animal harm

Backstory For those who haven't read my previous posts, Sergeant Shitty is my FMIL who flipped out on me during my SO's Air Force graduation, called my SO's Srgt. to tattle on him for not spending enough time with mommy, has been online stalking me and convinced herself we had a secret wedding (we didn't).

This post is long (apologies) so tl;dr is at the bottom. I meant to post after what happened on Christmas (it was a doozy) but life happened. So I’m going to post what happened at Christmas today and then post the aftermath later this week. I’m open to advice/feedback on this post, and will DEFINITELY be asking for advice on the next one.

French Horn Eb Extension. How Does It Work?

About a year ago, I decided that I wanted to try to play another instrument for my school band along with clarinet. I picked up French Horn and have made a lot of progress with it so far. I recently looked in my case and saw the extension. I looked up what it was for and from what I'm able to tell, it changes the instruments tuning from F to Eb. My teacher thinks it tunes the instrument down a perfect fourth. Can anyone give some insight on how to use this extension? Do the fingerings change or am I only switching my embouchure?

Roles of a French Horn?

Recently I've really been getting into arranging for small band settings (usually Alto Sax, French Horn in F, Trumpet, Marimba, and Drum set), as I know people who would probably enjoy playing the songs I arrange, but that's a different story. I was wondering what the role of a French horn would be in this situation? I've looked at the scores for some district level pieces and it seems like they're mostly supporting instruments, but will they work as a 'bass' and support the whole group? If I need to, I will add an electric bass part, but I wanted to see what you guys think. If there's anything else I should know when arranging with horns? Any feedback would be appreciated!

Beater horn for teaching lessons

Hi Fam, thinking about buying a beater horn to teach lessons with. Starting to not feel so great about my custom geyer being around the un aware small ones. Any suggestions?

An horns that caught my eye:

  1. Conn 6D: same bore as my geyer, and a medium bell throat. It is a Schmidt inspired wrap. I found a 1963 Elkhart 6ds for 1500.
  2. King petelliar: always wanted a schmidt style horn. Draw back is the piston valve, I dont use a piston valve professionally so I think it might be a hindrance. I love the sound and the weight. Kinda a collector item more than anything. Found one for 1500.

I will def cut the bell if it is not cut. I have an extra meinl hand hammered medium bell not in use that will go on any of these horns.

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Dents in my horn

Ok it wasn’t me. I have a conn 6d from Elkhart and when I got it it had a few minor dents. The biggest one is a dent where the left hand sits on the pipe. My case the decided to stop working leading to a few more dents in the bell before I realized and got a new case. There are minor dents along the lead pipe and the pipe to the bell as well. I am wondering how easy it will be for me to get these fixed and how much it changes the sound (how urgent it is). Thanks!

(Spoilers published) I am sure this has already been asked but why wasn’t the Horn of Joramun stashed south of the wall? That seems like it would make it much harder for an Other to tootly toot the horn.

Looking to purchase a Horn for my son. Can someone shoot me some suggestions?

My son is in the 10th grade and currently plays on a school owned horn. It is a King 2278 "Fidelio". I know it is an older instrument, but I do not know if it is an intermediate level or pro level horn. Are horns of comparable or higher quality available in the $1000-$2000 range? Any suggestions you have would be appreciated!
