    Re: 2B Flapper Girl

    I saw that, and I'm probably already out of the bidding. Really love that engraving in the gold plate. I've never seen that one before. I think I might like it better than the "naked lady", the Pan, etc. It may be rare. It's probably best I don't think about it, lest I make a rash decision...

    BTW, if anyone is wondering what these 0.459 2B's sound like, then you simply have to listen to HornTrader's video; these 2Bs can blow the roof off the building:

    These are based off the Besson Paris trumpets from France, they play very similarly too, same bore size same bell size (I think) but different wrap. The Conn 2B I had (and wish I hadn't sold) plays a bit flatter than the Besson Brevete in the lower register.
    The first gen Conn 2Bs are a sought out gems of C.G. Conn.

    I love this generation of the 2B; the ones with one leadpipe/casing brace instead of two (1926 to early 1928). Here's the one I like to show off . . .

    You'll get a laugh outta this.

    Just the other day [within the last week or two], I heard this piece of music [I think I was driving down the road, listening to WCPE], and all of a sudden I was like, "Whoa! Dadgum! That's the tune that HornTrader plays on the 2B!!!!!"

    Turned out to be Leroy Anderson, of "Sleigh Ride" fame.

    What a kinder, gentler people we once were.
