Thread: FS: Conn 5-Valve Double-Bell with 2 Curved Bells - NICE

  1. #1

    Thumbs up FS: Conn 5-Valve Double-Bell with 2 Curved Bells - NICE

    This db euphonium look very nice! Not much lacquer wear and the dents I see are not serious and they are countable (vs. being part of a "field of dents" like many old horns have). The 5 valves appear to be standard action (not short action), and I'm guessing no case is include. There is a soft bag shown in the first photo. No serial number is given, but the design appears to be in the more recent decades of the db world, so I expect it would be pitched at 440. Current bid is $800. This seller seems to have no musical instrument experience, so it's possible it will sell for a price that is reasonable.

    SOLD FOR $1,225 - WOW!!

  2. Nice looking Double Bell.
    The general shape is like my 1936 30I.
    Agree it is a standard action.
    The one pic showing a valve casing bottom does not match the 30I short action bottom.
    Suspect it it may be a 60I.
    The 30I is labeled 30I on the mouthpiece receiver.

    1960s 4 valve and 1971 3 valve Besson New Standards (Denis Wick 6BM) for regular playing
    1936 Conn 5 valve 30I Double Bell (Bach 6-1/2AL) General Purpose Back -Up
    1924 Buescher 5 valve (the Denis Wick is close) and 1940 Holton 5 valve (Bach 6-1/2AL) Double Bells for kicks.
    1860s OTS Saxhorn when history is required (the Denis Wick fits)

  3. The horn was relisted.
    The description includes this: "I 09 in the mouthpiece stalk."
    I suspect that the seller is reading "60I" upside down on the receiver.
    The Conn Loyalist places serial number 223195 in 1925 production.

    Looks like it was relisted and ended. No indication if it was "sold" or not.

    Will - thanks for decoding that! I couldn't figure out what it meant. 60I.

    tonewheeler - thanks for that update, I have fixed the link in the original.

    This one sold for a rock-bottom price! I hope someone on the forum snapped it up.
