    I think you did very well, and I use one of these for my 1928 2-B.

    Contoured Trumpet Case by SKB Cases

    At under a hundred bucks they are tough, well built and compact.

    Re: Conn 2b. Did I do good??

    A quick question, is it possible to cut of the head of a giardinelli piece so I can use the backbore with my warburton tops on it? I think that would be the best of both worlds for me. Little bit of the new, and the old

    Re: Conn 2b. Did I do good??

    I made a threaded adjustable cup mouthpiece as my final project for my industrial tech minor in college. It was very difficult, and I did it under the supervision of a master machinist. Could never do it on my own.

    Re: Conn 2b. Did I do good??

    Giardinelli also made threaded backbores, cups and rims. I don't know about compatibility with Warburton. I would guess that there are many mouthpieces out there that would work well. Like almost everything the older the Giardinelli, probably the more attention went into making it. Giardinelli employed a few of the better known custom mouthpiece makers of today at one time. I really can't remember why I tried that mouthpiece. It might have been the price. I got one that is NOS for a very low price.

    Neither of these were BIN sales. One nice feature of ebay advanced search is that one can check completed listings to see recent sales of similar items.....
    Hi, I'm the one that bought the trumpet in the second link. Just received it last week, wow what a great trumpet this is, the state in which it's in is great as well. I've also owned a 22B from 1924 but i think this one sounds better, a bit more full. I was in luck even more with this trumpet because the Bach mouthpiece that came with it is a New York 6B from the 30's

    Did you receive yours yet Moosicles? Let me know how you like it

    Not only have you bought your first pro horn you may have also bought your last. I predict that you are going to fall head-over-heels in love with this horn and be totally blown away that someone was mass producing horns like this 84 years ago. You may well come to spend thousands of dollars trying to find a better axe, but you will never experience what you are about to experience. Enjoy!!! You will return to this 2B time and time again. DO NOT EVER PART WITH IT!!!!!

    ...
    Bochawa!!! You were exactly correct. Today, upon cleaning the pool filter, my cousin spotted the mail man fiddling with some things in the back of his car/truck and jokingly says "Hey look! I think he has your trumpet!". He was 100% correct. My new horn had arrived, along with its new case and Conn 4 mouthpiece! I gave it a quick blow, and instantaneously fell in love. The tone was warm, rich, full, and captivating. It was just... Beautiful. The high register was brilliant and easy, and the lows had a big, FAT and easy blow. When I played soft, I could get the horn give me a rich smokey jazz sound. When I played it intimately, I could make sing sweetly and easily. When I played with energy, the horn became strong, thick and filled my house instantly! Of course this is compared to my student/intermediate horn, so naturally, everthing is going to be better. And I could only imagine it's gonna keep getting better.

    A quick note on the mouthpiece. It looks kinda like somebody took some sandpaper to it... Maybe to fix the gap? I dunno, but the horn was in tune with me throughout all registers using the Conn, but not when I used my Warburton. I think I prefer the Conn piece overall anyways, so no worrys there!

    Anyways, have fun on the forums guys. I think I won't be back for a while. I have to explore my new-found love some more
