Description: Trombone - Rare Conn pro trombone Elkhart
Rare Elkhart Conn 78H pro trombone, mid-60's. One of the most highly-regarded and sought-after models. .522 bore.
Beautiful Original lacquer in fine condition, with only minor wear, but with numerous very light scratches. Really pretty.
Some inconsequential pings and tiny dings removed, and one very shallow ripple in bell flare removed.
Slide fine and moves freely (test: WITHOUT any lubrication, put bow on palm, and raise the inner slide smoothly and see that bow remains on palm).
Plating on inner slide is fully intact, no wear-thru.
Tuning slide pulls freely.
Original case in fine functional condition, but the leather binding is scuffed, separated, or missing in some places. Moderate oxidation on case hardware. Some scuffs on case material.
I believe I am pricing this far below market judging from what I've seen dealers list them for. My price: $750, which is a bargain for this gorgeous horn. I'll include Priority shipping if it is sold within the 1st month of listing.
