I'm TRULY honored to list my horn for sale. If you know anything about Conns, you know how special this horn is--no matter the vintage. This just happens to be really old! 1956-57 Elkhart, IN, production, C.G. Conn LTD (see bell photos). SERIAL NUMBER 845599, confirms 1956 or 1957 production as per Conn's website.

I have Bachelor's degree in horn performance; I have been a private music instructor for over twenty years; this is my third Conn horn (10D, 10DR and this); I'm deeply reverent to the brand; I won't play or buy anything else. History known: I'm either the third or fourth owner. This is my playing horn; it has never just 'been on a shelf'.

The photos do what they can--please view them carefully and ask any questions. This is a major horn, a major investment; and therefore I'm only considering extremely serious inquiries, buyers or offers. Highly rare, highly valuable, highly cherished, extremely well-maintained, plays beautifully.

Case shown is NOT included.

Thank you for all serious interest. I am looking for its next, long-term caretaker as I am retired now from teaching and playing professionally. In another listing I am selling another gem, my 1923 Conn trumpet, if you have any interest in it. Also very rare, and my playing/teaching instrument.

Sale will be final; no returns.
