CONN 28D, post-Elkhart, with detachable bell flare

Click to enlarge












Maker: CONN


Model: 28D



Made in 1992


Type: Full double F/Bb


Alloy: lacquered yellow brass


Bell flare: detachable, converted, with Paxman rings





Visual / cosmetic condition: good, some lacquer wear in


expected places, and also where the bell has been


converted and the detachable leadpipe installed.



Valve compression: very good


Water key: conventional type, on the leadpipe.


Case: 'MB-style', detachable bell, compact and


reasonably lightweight.



Further details: A very good ‘post Elkhart’ 28D


with an unusually clear and 'slotted' high




In addition, it displays all the other Conn virtues:


a potentially large sound, a wide dynamic


range and a superb legato.



Its leadpipe is the Conn original, detachable via an


ingenious system similar but not identical to that on


Holton's Models 104 and 105.



Although a 'professional quality' instrument,


it is also listed in the 'intermediate' category,


owing to its 'below £2000' price.
