    Welcome to trumpetmaster. Check out the Conn Loyalist web sight. The Conn Loyalist Usually the model number on a Conn is stamped on the mouth peice pipe. It will be something like 22B. I like old Conns. Good Luck!

    It is either a Victor or Director, which should be marked on the side of the leadpipe. These were actually made by Yamaha for Conn and was made in 1971.

    Yamaha also made a cornet variety for Conn at that time with underslung slide, that turn up fairly often on Ebay or Shopgoodwill.

    Re: conn trumpet

    thanks, I have checked out conn loyalist and none of the photos match my horn, also there is no marking on the mouth piece lead pipe, a local music store looked it up in his parts catalog and he thought it to be a 19B, but it comes closest to matching the 38B. I've have heard before that Yamaha proably made the horn for Conn, is there a site for Yamaha?
    thanks for all the imput.

    Re: conn trumpet

    Here is a query for a similar horn from all experts site. I think that will be about the best info findable. Yamaha has a site, but they can't even document their own brand serials, so I doubt you would get anything out of them. Trumpet: Conn Trumpet, decent players, approximate value

    http://www.trumpetmaster.com/vb/f140...ion-41589.html (What model of Conn Coprion?) I contributed about nothing to this old thread.
