    Need [digital or scan/etc.] tracing/rubbing of this bell logo

    Does anyone know where I can get a digital, 2-dimensional flat tracing of this Conn bell logo?
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I can't really draw the logo freehand, and no record of it seems to exist other than photos of the Conn 16x series from the 1970s.

    Another logo I don't need as much, but am looking for, is "Director" from

    Other than the Conn 18x bells from the 1980s, this is the only print ad I've seen with the Henkin Director logo, and a Google "Search by Image" yields no other size of this ad on the web. Any thoughts on where this can be found?

    Any help is appreciated - thanks!

    Take tracing paper and rub a crayon on it to get the impression?

    I could straighten it reasonably well in Photoshop or do a by-hand vector tracing which would be fairly forward to straighten. I can't guarantee perfect reproduction of the "original" proportions; I'm not convinced that this artwork was ever a flat original on paper. If you want me to try, please reply - don't know how you PM here, but if you know how, do that. I'd need a reasonably good photo, or a couple of them, to work from. Alternatively, you could contact Conn-Selmer and see if they can help.

    I would, but I don't have access to a 16x Conn, and buying one for just this purpose would be difficult due to the high prices charged [but if you have a cheap-to-go 16A early model with the odd wrap, perhaps I can make some headway there... :-)]

    Thank you - I will send you a PM shortly. Unfortunately, Conn-Selmer is not known for standing by lower-quality products made by a company that they consider "ancestral" due to the various acquisitions and mergers Conn underwent before reaching its present form...I might try emailing them later, however...
