Description: Trumpet - 1941 NY Symphony Special by GC Conn Ltd
There are no pictures available for this trumpet
A RARE AND UNUSUAL FIND. New York Symphony Special Trumpet, 1941 according to Conn serial number pages, in amazingly good condition for its age. Only a few scattered small dings, no large damage at all, in raw brass, and plays great. Very ornate etching the entire length of the bell, also in good condition, and the words "NY Symp. Special" inscribed on the mouthpiece receiver - which i understand is also an important part of identifying this horn. Horn has a medium-small bore and sings right out, loud, clear and bright. There is a lot of information on the GC Conn pages about this horn indicating that it may have been the best professional model horn Conn ever made. It also indicates that only 500 were made from 1932 to 1941, qualifying this one as rare. The horn has just been chemically cleaned. The valves are fast and responsive, and all slides are free and easy. Includes what appears to be the original case -- a little beat up but still very functional. Both latches work, however one does not spring open by itself. NO mouthpiece included.
