    Both our 17A's have that slide. They're '61-'62 vintage horns. Thought maybe it might be used to tune the bell, but moisture dump does sound more plausable. Mouthpiece choice on those will vary the sound greatly. The trumpet cup type Bachs give a more trumpety sound, but use a Wick, and man, you start getting more towards a flugle type sound. VERY mellow:oops:

    I think it's there to give the techs a way to straighten out all the middle school damage to the bell tail without taking the bell off...

    Touche', Dale. And, very probably quite correct, judging from the shape my 17A's in!:roll::lol::oops:

    The moisture dump theory may be the main reason it's there, since Conn's upper-end cornets with a similar design have a water key on that slide.
