    We have a couple of the Conn Vintage One C Trumpets here in stock right now for sale. The ones we have in stock are the 46 pipes contrary to what I have seen mostly online which have the 50 pipes. The horns that we have play exceptionally well. I don't know how they play with the 50 pipe, but I'm sure they are pretty similar. Let me know if you would like to try one out.

    I play a prototype of the Conn V.O C, that was played by my teacher when he was an endorsing artist for Conn. It's got the 50 leadpipe, I believe, and had all of the braces sweet-spotted. It's in raw brass, too. It's a great horn, one of the best, if not the best C I've played. It's a very dark, full horn, very free-bolwing. The slotting is very good, and there is no issue with tone int he upper register. The intonation is spot-on, too.
    It's a great horn, but I've never played a stock one, but I imagine that they are also great horns.
