Conn 88h

88h_1a

The Conn 88h is the holy grail of vintage tenor trombones.

88h_3a

They are a large bore symphony tenor. They are beautifully made, and play wonderfully.

I got this horn from my uncle, Dave Buckley. He played it for years and I consider myself lucky to have it now.

88h_5a

My uncle got it from Bob Merritt who had bought it from Dave Rayment. The horn itself was made in ’67 or ’68 I believe.

88h_7

It’s been well played and well loved over the years but is starting to show it’s age, but look at the lovely detail. So much care taken in the manufacture of these beauties.

88h_4

Lovely details.

88h_6a

But I’m afraid that it’s time for a bath.

88h_8a

Like the old Olds trombones, these have lovely engraving.

88h_9a

Not the original case.
