Here’s a rare find for you jazzers.
This Conn 4H brass trombone is in good shape and ready to swing. The serial number is 524xxx which puts the
date of manufacture around 1955. On the
ornately engraved bell it reads “C.G. Conn Ltd. U.S.A. Elkhart, Ind.” It has the “4H” stamp and “6” or “9”
(depending how you looking at it) is stamped on the tuning slide and also where
you insert the tuning slide. It has;
nice action, slick slide, free moving tuning slide, Conn counterweight, 7-inch
bell, 80-90% of it’s original finish, no big dents, mouthpiece and the original
Conn case. The case has some wear but
everything works and the interior is intact.
The trombone has a ding here and there but nothing major and I believe
one of the braces has been resoldered.
The slide has a couple of spots (see pic) but is responsive. Me?

Looking for horns and getting them into the hands of players is a hobby
of mine. I’ve never come across one of these. As I understand it, it is comparable to the King 2B. As is, it would be good enough for me. But since whoever buys this will probably be
an advanced player, I’m sure you’ll want to have your tech give it a going over
to get in tip-top shape. You know, like
any horn. It and the case will
detail nicely. Again, this trombone
looks and sounds cool. I’ll ship it, in
the case, just like you see. They
discontinued this model in 1958 so they, literally, don’t make ‘em like this
anymore. I’m proud to offer it and
you’ll be proud to own it. Thanks for
your interest and best of luck.
