Description

This Conn 3 valve F bell front silver alto horn is in very good condition with 98%+ of the silver finish remaining. This is a satin finish with polished accents and tuning slides. The second valve finger button and bottom cap do not match the others and the bottom cap is lacquered instead of silver.  There are some minor dents and dings throughout the horn and none are major.  The bell edge has an extremely minor wave in it. There is some light evidence of bell dent removal. Please see pictures. The serial number is “L28937” making this a vintage 1968 horn. The engraving on the bell reads “Conn Elkhart-Ind. U.S.A.”. No mouthpiece is included. It comes with its Eb tuning slide extenders so you can play in Eb as well as F. It comes in the original case which is in older used condition and has tape on the edges. This alto horn plays great! The valves have nice quick and quiet action.  It has the big Conn sound with great projection.
