(If you would like to purchase this horn please contact us directly so we can accurately quote you a shipping price)
This horn is believed to be a Conn New Era 58B #1 Bore (0.438")
Serial Number in the 288,XXX puts this as being manufactured around 1932
The horn is presented in good playing condition.
- Top and bottom caps show signs of being forced off at some time in the horn's 80 year history.
- A few dings and pings across the horn - no serious damage.
- Leadpipe may have had some receiver repairs in the past - but looks good.
- Bell has a small 1/2 inch crease where it looks like it may have come in contact with a stand (cosmetic only)
- Front connecting brace to the bell looks to have been re-soldered in the past
- Silver Plate is around 85% - there is some silver polish applied to contact points on the valve block, and the 3rd slide
- Mpc receiver end looks a little knarled but seats a mpc no problem
- Valves are good - quick action, clean and really hold compression
- Engraving is crisp and clear
Having said all the above - the horn plays really quite well. Lower pricing reflects the cosmetics and that we purchased this for a good price.
