Re: Vintage Conn Baritone attic find
This old relic was made by Conn. The P in front of the serial number refers to the stencil run for this group of instruments and will not refer to any horns engraved CG Conn. It was made by conn for another supplier. I cannot read the engraving.
The parts used for the stencil hors often were from old designed parts still in stock. This one has straight tone holes, so it is using parts for horns manufactured prior to like 1922.
This is still a relic that would be a wonderful restoration project. The old Conm Bari s have an excellent sound if set up with the correct pads and a good mouthpiece.
If you want to unload it. I have a 1920s martin guitar I'll trade you.
BAZINGA!!, But I'd snatch it up if I was around. A wonderful refurbishing project I'd love to dig into.
