CONN ''New Era'' Trumpet 58B .........Wall hanger or restore it ?
Marked ''C G Conn, Ltd ..Elkhart, Indiana'' Serial number 268500.
Conflicting websites ... one says this horn was made in 1929 the other 1939?
If I were more knowledgeable about horns I probably could figure it out.
''For real Hot Sizzling playing, The New Eras are hard to beat.'' (Conn 1934)
This is the 58B... Louis Armstrong favored the 56B New Era which looks a lot like this one.
Has beautiful engraved design on the bell.
In pretty rough condition. Missing a few parts as you can see.
Would be a great playing horn if someone chose to restore it. Missing a valve plunger top,
core is inside but stuck. The two remaining valves move easily.
Several welds are apart. Nickel or silver plated over brass, with quite a bit of silver loss.
No markings on the mouthpiece, which is stuck as well.
This horn was well loved and played a lot. You gotta wonder who it belonged to?
Maybe even Louis had it as a back up?
This brass is sold (sold on 2008-08-30)
