Alloy: Yellow Brass

Condition: Excellent
Other Details: This is a beautiful early 300,000 series Conn 6d from 1934. I recently found it and sent it to one of NYC's most reputable brass repair shops, where the horn was cleaned and the play in the valves was removed. Despite developing a peculiar outer finish from lost lacquer over its 80+ year history, this horn has virtually no damage. Amazingly, this horn has good valve compression.

Unlike the newer Conn 6ds, which are intended to be beginner/intermediate instruments, the Conn 6ds of the early Elkhart era were intended to be professional instruments. One year after the horn in this listing was made, the professional Hornist Stagliano endorsed the Conn 6d.

This particular horn has a few extremely minor dings, and the most noteworthy is on one of the knuckles pictured above. The horn shows some evidence of dent work around the flare of the bell, but no evidence whatsoever that the crucial section where the bell stem meets the flare has ever been dented (or worse, trashed). There are no loose braces, and all of t
Extras: I can include this horn's original case (workable, but in poor shape) and/or a red Kelly mouthpiece if you desire.
