    The Connstellation will always be a major favorite of mine, and just by luck I happened to come across the pamphlet that he’d done for Conn, some time in the ‘60s I think, and being, as I am, a...

    I’ve always appreciated the 4th “water key” Guidocorona.

    Are there still to be 4 water keys on the newest version of the Festivo? I think I recall reading somewhere that there might be a change. ...

    My HS and college band training was in the era of parallel to the body, front valve Conns and Kings. By...

    Thank you for the thought.

    I’ve considered that very carefully, but have never had a chance to try one. I would certainly not rule out the idea. Isn’t there at least one other besides the...

    Has anyone actually played one of these?
