What’s on My Bench? Conn 62H Trombone

What’s on My Bench? Conn 62H Trombone

Today’s awesome horn is a Conn 62H trombone, and it was a lot of fun to work on! Serial number dates this one at 1970, and it still has a lot of years of play time left in it. This is a very unusual horn in that the main tuning mechanism is in the handslide instead of the bell. It was stuck and had a small dent, so I had some delicate work to do. It came out beautifully with no issues, so the tuning mechanism works smoothly and the handslide does as well. Someone had painted the rotor caps...

What's on My Bench? 1967 Getzen Eterna Severinson Model Trumpet

Today’s horn may not be much to look at, but it sure is an awesome player! This is a 1967 Getzen Eterna Severinson Model, and if you’re a trumpet player, you probably know a bunch of people that really love these horns.  They are light and responsive, with those fast Getzen valves that survive so well over the years; this is a great horn for Jazz and Commercial playing.

What’s on My Bench? Holton H279 French Horn

As you have seen, we have gotten lots of new/demo Conn-Selmer French horns in the last few months, but I still have plenty of nice used ones on my shelf to go through! This one is a nice Holton H279 - it’s seen some action in its time, but is still pretty solid and will serve you well. It badly needed a cleaning, and had neon green corrosion on its rotors, but now it smells like clean dishes and is ready to play! I did some minor dent removal on the bell flare as well, and the screw bell works...

What's on My Bench? King Silver Tone Artist Bore Trumpet

Lately I’ve been super busy taking care of our latest big shipment, but I’ve managed to get a few awesome vintage horns taken care of as well. This King Silver Tone has been my favorite of the week - not only is it beautiful to look at, but it’s a really nice player as well. So nice, in fact, that I need to walk away from it before I start to feel like I need it! The larger bore makes it feel very much like a modern instrument, so it’s super comfortable to play. This horn is in really fantastic...
