Thread: Conn 219052 horn?--from LittleJimmy

  1. Conn 219052 horn?--from LittleJimmy

    Hello

    I have decided that my Yamaha 621YBH baritone is more horn than I need and I plan to sell it. I'm looking at a Conn #219052 silver on eBay and trying to figure out what Conn model it might be. I'd appreciate help. Thanks.

    A link to the listing might help. I don't think I know how to convert a serial number to a model number.

  3. The serial number helps date the horn to 1924-25, but we need a picture to tell you what model.

    Thanks, John!

    It looks like a decent horn as far as condition. For general band playing or similar uses, I suspect it would be fine. I have not played a Conn of this age, but mostly Conns have a very nice tone, and response & intonation that are good.

  6. This is a Conn 66I New Wonder bell up baritone. As long as it is not a high pitch, it might be useable in a community band context. Condition of valves and the "tuning/lead pipe" is paramount. Leaks here will be expensive.

    I've never played a lead-pipe tuner that had decent intonation...

    Just saying.
