    I noticed since his passing, a lot of previously unreleased Maynard stuff is now available via MP3.

    If anyone wants to share some rare recordings or information on Maynard that's not here, please let us know.

    Lars Kirmser's Music Trader shows Conn Brasswinds in 1965 beginning with Serial No. E54106. That places your horn as made in 1965 as well. The Player/Horn Combinations website says Maynard's Connstelation 38b was a "Liberator" model. Did a mouthpiece with markings come with your horn? I would be interested to know about that. Anyway, I'd also like to know if there any "Liberator" markings on the horn for future reference.

    I found out that the "Liberator" is the large bore version of the Connstellation 38b.

    I know this thread has moved to Constellations; so I will try to combine both topics:

    1.. Can anyone give an opinion on "The PRO Constellation" 85B from 1990s? How does this compare to the Liberator?


    2. I have already placed this under favourite You-tube thread, but worthy here as well:

    Yeah, but I was after some info on the Connstellation, as well as get the focus back to MF....you're right, it is in the favourite You-tube thread, as I mentioned above.
