Some of us ask how we identify the age of this horn. We figured it is made in East Lake, OH. IT IS NOT AN ABILENE, TX MADE HORN. The 37 prefix puts it at 1987. Abilene production ended in 1986. Refer to this link for the age. Inquire for other attributes of the East Lake horns that identify the 8D we have here.
