Reviews:

"The Conn-Selmer DSS-180 Curved Soprano delivers on the quality and playability expected from its prestigious name. The horn has a tangible quality that makes it a joy to pick up and play. With regards to curved sopranos, one sometimes finds the bend in the horn makes the intonation slightly tricksy, but after spending some time with the horn you soon find where to place your notes and then you’re firing on all cylinders on a sweet and versatile sounding horn that packs a punch thanks to the flared bell!

I would recommend this horn to students as a first curved soprano with no reservation, as well as hobbyists and enthusiasts looking for a great, affordable curved soprano. However, if you’re looking to take the next step in your soprano playing career I wouldn’t advise this for you, as although this is a fantastic entry level piece, it is still an entry level piece." - Michael (Sax.co.uk)
