    Usually the main body of the Conn horn was satin silver and the removable parts like the slides, finger buttons, top and bottom caps, valve stems etc. were polished silver. They were usually polished around the engraving and inside the bell also. What is the year/serial number of your horn?
    Refinishing a horn can get expensive and even more expensive to change to a custom finish. But can be totally worth it!
    Can you post pictures of your 22B now, so we might see why you think it needs refinished?

    At the top of this page there is a "Gallery" link. You can add a album of your own.
    I use a Photobucket account. If you use Photobucket you can upload the pictures there and copy and paste the IMG code here in your post.
