Here for sale is a vintage 1927-8 (serial number 208xxx) Conn Bb valve trombone. This trombone is in good shape functionally and cosmetically. The valves work smoothly with no hang-ups or dragging. One valve button is a replacement (still vintage) button.
The tuning slide adjusts in and out like it should. An extra tuning slide is included. Please tap on the "Show More" button if you'd like to read more description and see all 24 photos of this trombone.
Vintage 1927/8 CONN Valve Trombone w/ Original Case. Possibly the two slides allow for "high" or "low" pitch intonation, but I don't know for sure. Cosmetically there are some minor dings here and there that are visible in the pictures. There is remarkably little play wear through the original satin silver finish. The engraving is very well defined and beautiful.
The finish is a polished silver on the upper part of the bell where the engraving is, and a satin silver finish on the rest of the horn. A neat feature that speaks to the quality and care that went into making this instrument. Most of the original gold wash on the inside of the bell is still here. The worst of the dents by far are on the left side of the flair before the bell and one close to the lyre mount. The dents are pretty shallow and would be an easy repair for an experienced tech.Please check out all the photos. I made a lot of them to show both the condition of the finish and the overall fine integrity of this Conn valve trombone.
I did not polish the finish except in the area where the engraving is. The rest is as found. There are no damaged parts (outside of the dents mentioned previously) or repairs I could find anywhere on the horn. It is straight and fits together like it should. This is a finely made beautiful sounding instrument that will provide years of enjoyment.
It has been well loved and cared for. Included with the horn is an unmarked mouthpiece that was with the horn when I got it. I believe it is original to the horn. Also included is the original hard case that is in fair shape with the hing and all the latches working and handle intact.
