Conn Connstellation 38a Cornet Nice 1965 With Case & Parduba 6 1/2 Mouthpiece :
Conn Connstellation 38A Cornet from 1965. Serial number C31XX. Comes with great Pro-Tec case, and a nice Parduba cornet 6 1/2.The horn has been in my family since new. Two small pings close together on the top of the bell pipe close to the first valve, no other dents or dings I can see, but silver loss on the first valve trigger, a little loss on first valve block as shown, some wear as shown on first, more of second, less on the third valves where thumb rests as shown. A scratch on the leadpipe as shown, and a couple long scratches by the A on the leadpipe where a tech tried to get off a stuck mouthpiece and didn't initially set the puller correctly. The third valve ring has a little wear. Bottom valve caps lacquer off in a few places. Some small scratches here and there on the horn, but it is all original and in nice shape for a horn of this vintage. Check out all the pictures for condition review.
Very nice valves with good compression, all slides work nicely. Great Connstellation cornet sound. Nickel plated with brass trim, top sprung valves with electro D bell. A true survivor.
