Conn 80A

  • I currently own a Conn 80A cornet which is my favorite of the 3 cornets that I currently own. Really like the ease of play and slotting. It is my 4th Conn. My first was a 6B which was a very very fine horn. Then I bought the old Conn flugel, the one built like an oversized trumpet. Next up was an old Director with a Coprion bell before my current 80A. Since I don't play much cornet anymore I am not concerned with the timbre as much as Dale, but I find that it blends favorably with my neighbor's recent and expensive Kanstul shepherd crook horn. My wish list for horns to try out are an old 22B and a 38B.
