Up for auction is this rare, highly sought after trombone, manufactured by C. G. Conn ltd., in Elkhart, Indiana.


The serial number is 3374**, which dates the manufacturing of this unique horn to 1940.  I don’t know too much about this, but the following is what I was able to find:


The 30H was a ''duo-bore'' instrument, with a bore of 0.494'' and 0.507''. In Conn terms, this is approximately #2¾ and a #3¼ bore. It was produced from 1934 to at least 1949.


What Conn said in 1938:
These two [30H and 32H] new models were built especially for the theatre, dance, and other large organizations, where great power and volume are paramount. Designed by and named for ''Jake'' Burkle, dean of Conn experimental engineers, and considered by him to be two of the best he has ever built. Incorporate tapered bore throughout bell, tuning slide, bell taper, slides and hand slide bow. This design, together with new construction bell, produces great flexibility, plenty of bright tone of robust quality, just the right amount of resistance, exceptionally accurate intonation, and amazing ease of response. Every register is of same beautiful quality, the top register being unusually good. Players are surprised at the ease with which high F and the G above bass clef are obtained. Narrowest slides and longest slide bearing on outside slides of any Conn trombone, giving light, fast slide action. Slide lock, bell lock, standard bell 7 and 7½ inches. Bb.
