A friend gave me a 1957 Conn 12b. He was expressing his gratitude for repair I’ve done for him over the years. It is a little beat up but I can fix that. MAN, WHAT A GORGEOUS SOUND IT HAS!!!
@Mike-Ansberry Is that by chance a painter with the initials G F?
Nope. It was from a pro player with the initials G C. Should I know this painter with the initials G F?

I have only owned two Conn's in my life ( so far ) . First was a 1952 28B Constellation I played between '53 and'65 and these days a 1999 Conn Vintage One, and the sound on both was and is GORGEOUS.

I once had both a Conn 12b and e Conn 22b, pretty much the same instruments apart from the bell; the 12b has a copper bell rather than the yellow brass bell from the 22b
I prefereer the 22b: better projection so easier to play in company. Both are great horns. Oil the valves!
I have one, if it hasn't gotten lost in the moving shuffle. It is a fine player, and I like the blow.
