These horns are quite rare, this one is an art deco beauty! There is some red rot in the leadpipe and some bell dents. The 2nd slide has a patch as well. The Conn 48A has an artistic, Art Deco design concept. Every part of the horn incorporates Art Deco details, from the mouthpiece receiver to the rimless bell. The key difference between the 48a and most modern instruments is the tubing wrap; the third valve slide is on the right of the tuning slide rather than on the left. The design concept continues through the recessed water keys, faceted valve casings, bracing, and valves caps. The bell features more engraving than many horns, but it's the rimless edge that steals the show.
Not available for trial at the shop. For purchase, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you see the listing of the horn it's still available (the "sold out" is only because we are not running the sales directly through ACB).
The price is a suggested estimate price by ACB and the estate. Any fair and reasonable offer (which actually might be above the estimated price) will be considered. Email us and we will help.
All sales are going through the family directly and not ACB. This is so the family will get all the proceeds... Jerry taught my teacher who showed me how to hand cut and shape mouthpieces. I feel like I owe the family a great deal and this is why we are helping.
If you have any questions call or email us. We are always happy to help!
