    Conn 8b trumpet, 1969 (Elkhart)

    This is actually a terrific horn, Conn 8b trumpet from 1969 (Elkhart, IN). It doesn't say "Artist" on it, but as far as I can tell it is the Artist model. Very nice sound. Feels light to hold, to me. I am selling because I really don't play trumpet as much as I should... and I'm looking to put the money toward a bass guitar (which I play more often).

    It does NOT have the original case. I'm not sure what the case is, but it protects it in any case. Let me know if you're interested, and I could always take some pictures.

    I'm asking $750, which includes shipping. Thanks.
