C.G. Conn 22B Trumpet
Up for auction is my 1933 C.G. Conn 22B Trumpet with original case (no mouthpiece). This vintage trumpet is in raw brass (only a few specks of laquer remain) and looks good for its age. No dents, but a few dings. It does have a couple patches on it (I tried to show them in the photos). The most noticable is on the leadpipe, there is also a small one on the second valve slide tube and on the end of the bell bow going into the 1st valve that were very well done and almost unnoticable. The engraving on the bell is light but readable, 'C.G. CONN LTD', 'USA', 'ELKHART, IND'.
I believe all parts on this trumpet to be original. The finger buttons all match, the top and bottom caps are stamped 1,2 &3, and the valves all have the same serial #(294053). About a year ago I put all new corks on it and new springs and felts.
The horn plays and sounds great. (Like everybody on eBay) I hate to sell it but I bought another 22B awhile back and don't need this one sitting around. I love these old horns and the different ways you can make them sound. It's not as loud as my Holton T101 Symphony but the way it slots the notes you can be alot more creative. For someone that has never played a pro quality vintage trumpet this is a wonderful horn at an affordable price. (NO RESERVE)...(NO RESERVE)...(NO RESERVE)...(NO RESERVE)...(NO RESERVE)...
