    I saw that, and I'm probably already out of the bidding. Really love that engraving in the gold plate. I've never seen that one before. I think I might like it better than the "naked lady", the Pan, etc. It may be rare. It's probably best I don't think about it, lest I make a rash decision...

    This one? What one? As Sgt Schultz would say, "I see nothing...."

    Only the educated can quote the classics

    These are based off the Besson Paris trumpets from France, they play very similarly too, same bore size same bell size (I think) but different wrap. The Conn 2B I had (and wish I hadn't sold) plays a bit flatter than the Besson Brevete in the lower register.
    The first gen Conn 2Bs are a sought out gems of C.G. Conn.

    I love this generation of the 2B; the ones with one leadpipe/casing brace instead of two (1926 to early 1928). Here's the one I like to show off . . .

    You'll get a laugh outta this.

    Just the other day [within the last week or two], I heard this piece of music [I think I was driving down the road, listening to WCPE], and all of a sudden I was like, "Whoa! Dadgum! That's the tune that HornTrader plays on the 2B!!!!!"

    Turned out to be Leroy Anderson, of "Sleigh Ride" fame.

    What a kinder, gentler people we once were.
