Conn

Straight "Stretch"

224xxx Silverplate This is a rare, late Conn soprano from 1929. Sometimes called a "stretch" model since Conn redesigned their Bb sopranos in the late 20's, making them about 3/4" longer than the previous model. Plating is in excellent condition, and the gold in the bell is nice. Padwork was done by Emilio and is still in good condition. I'll disassemble, clean, polish, and adjust as needed, or can repad completely. Call or write
