88HO


About the Model 88HO
The story of the Conn 88H trombone ultimately begins in 1875 with the vision and determination of one man: Colonel C.G. Conn. Founding a band instrument manufacturing company in the small town of Elkhart, Indiana, Conn quickly became known for his innovative brass designs and became the largest producer of trombones in the United States and earned the lasting reputation as "America's trombone house." Carrying on this tradition, the 88H is recognized for its unique tone color and refusal to "break up" even at the most extreme dynamics making it one of the most widely used professional symphonic trombones in the world. The Conn 88H series. Trombones with a future as bright as their past.


Features
The Conn 88HO Symphony trombone features a .547" primary bore combined with a .562" bore open wrap F attachment that offers outstanding clarity and projection with an open feel. The chrome plated nickel silver inner handslide tubes provide the ideal surface for smooth and quick handslide action. The rose brass material used in the professional bell and handslide material produces a deep, warm resonant sound while the clear lacquer finish adds a subtle warmth overall. The Conn 88HO professional trombone is ideal for both symphonic and solo performance. Available in silver-plate finish as model 88HOSP.

Conn 6M Naked Lady Alto Saxophone - 1936

$1699.99

Conn 6M Alto Sax


Our Perspective:
This is very nice Conn 6M Naked Lady Alto Saxophone. The Serial #M275171A indicates that the saxophone was built in 1936. The original lacquer is in good shape., with wear, which is expected from an instrument this old. The original neck is in great shape with the “underslung” octave key mechanism. We believe the mouthpiece is original , but the cap and ligature are more recent. This Alto Sax is marked "L" for "Low Pitch".

We just serviced this sax at our shop for basic play condition. This saxophone can be played as is, but could use a complete overhaul/Repad, for perfect playability.

Consignment Sale, as such, All Sales Final!!


The Conn Artist ("Naked Lady") - (from the internet.)
There was some experimentation with different keyguards for the tenor and different microtuner-neck and over-the-top neck octave key designs for the alto, but the design of the 6/10/12M remained essentially the same from 1935 to 1959.

I have at least one example of the 6M model VIII, featured in the Gallery. This is supposed to be the best version of the 6M, as are horns produced with an "x" before or after the serial number. The former is a horn with a moderately modified neck design and is generally accepted as the best model of the 6M. The latter is generally considered to be an eXperimental design (additional keywork, or vents, bore, etc.). There are also horns that feature the standard "over the top" octave key design -- referred to as a "New York Style" neck.

ALL the same pitches that were available during the age of the New Wonder were available through the Artist years, excepting the Sarrusophone, C soprano and straight soprano, it seems (the F instruments and C melody were available up until the start of WWII in 1941). However, horns other than the alto, tenor and baritone were essentially "factory original" New Wonder horns with different engraving and possibly keywork modifications -- and were special order, only. I have, at least, seen the bass in some 1960's catalogs and advertisements.


"Naked Lady" Time Line
1935: The 6M design was finalized toward the end of the Transitional period and the 12M design was finalized even earlier -- though both horns did have minor keywork changes -- but the tenor wasn't finalized until about s/n 263xxx, when its bell keys were switched to the RH side of the horn. This change announced the coming of Conn's most famous series of horns: the M series or "Naked Lady" model (so named for the engraving of a nude female portrait in a pentagon on the bell). According to later Conn catalogs (after 1959), these horns are officially called the "Artist" or "Standard" model, but "Naked Lady" is the most commonly used name people use.

1935/6 (around s/n 270xxx): Coinciding with the introduction of the 26M, the underslung octave key on the 6M alto is discontinued. It is brought back the next year,1936. The "over-the-top" octave key ("New York Style Neck") appears to then remain a custom option throughout the life of the 6M.

CG Conn Victor Cornet - with original case - 1924

Victor Cornet


Our Perspective:
This beautiful cornet just came in from the original owners Daughter - its in immculate condition. We just had it completely cleaned and gone through at our Tech shop. We dated it from the serial # and looks like it was made in 1924. It comes with the original case and lyre, but the mouthpiece is missing! This is a well preserved cornet that is ready for the next 100 years!!

  • We believe this is a “Victor 80A” with the “opera glass tuning slide” 
  • Serial # - 213111
  • Other Markings - L.P. (I assume “Low Pitch”), LTD
  • Finish - Silver/Gold with Nickel appointments??

Consignment Sale, as such, All Sales Final!!

Weight - 2 lbs. 10 oz.

Info from the Internet:
Notice the micro-tuning mechanism just forward of the first valve. Also notice the "mechanism" attached to the first and third slides. This automatically adjusts all slides when the main tuning slide is pulled out to A. The 80A started out life as the "New Wonder", then the "Victor New Wonder" and finally simply as "Victor". If you compare the "New Wonder" specifications of 1914 with the "Victor" specifications of 1957 you will notice the Victor gained 7 ounces in weight compared to 1914. I don't know when that weight was added. The 80A New Wonder has a #2½ bore (0.484"). Also, this model 80A had top spring valves with adjustable spring strength, while the later version had bottom spring valves. A minor detail is the second slide which on this model is at a right angle to the body of the instrument, but on the later version angles back towards the player. Read the booklet Conn included with these instruments, entitled What you should know about this instrument for more on the "mechansim", the micro-tuning mechanism (a.k.a. opera glass tuning slide) and the adjustable spring strength. Production started no later than 1914, and possibly earlier. The 80A with mechanism was discontinued sometime around 1939.

I have learned that the third slide without the finger ring to adjust the pitch of a low D and C# is slightly longer than it is on modern instruments. On modern instruments the low Eb is in tune, but the low D and C# are quite sharp. On these older cornets with the longer third slide no finger ring the Eb is a bit flat and the D and C# are slightly sharp, but not as sharp as they are on later instruments. It was thought that the flat Eb and slightly sharp D and C# were within the abilities of the player to lip into tune.

As far as I can tell at this point, all Conn cornets built before 1958 take a short shank cornet mouthpiece as opposed to the 2¾" "Bach-style" long shank cornet mouthpiece. The long shank cornet mouthpieces won't properly fit a pre-1958 Conn cornet and won't give the proper intonation or playing characteristics of a short shank cornet mouthpiece. All of Conn's "Connstellation" cornet mouthpieces are long shank mouthpieces. The "Improved Precision" Conn mouthpieces such as the Conn 4 are long shank if there is a "ridge" halfway down the shank, and short shank if there is no ridge (in which case it is a "Precision" mouthpiece). All Conn cornet mouthpieces built before the "Improved Precision" series (ridge), such as the "Precision" series (no ridge) are short shank mouthpieces.

Specifications of the "New Wonder", about 1914:
Diameter of bell, 4 5/8". Length of valve casing: 6 1/16". Length of cornet, 17 inches. Weight: 2 lbs. 8 oz. The "New Wonder" Cornet is made in low pitch or high and low pitch, according to order.

What Conn said about the "Victor" in 1927:
Victor cornets are setting the standard for the cornet world. Easy speaking, marvelously flexible, perfect in intonation and possessing unsurpassed beauty of tone. It is not strange they are being played by more world artists than any other cornet in the world. Now available in two bores - the 4A Small bore and the 80A Large bore. One of these two is the cornet you've been whishing you could sometime possess; it all depends upon what your engagement demands of you, which one you choose.
