Fellow THers,

Have you ever tried out a horn just because of all the hype you read on here and other forums, and lo and behold...it totally lives up to it's rep ???

My list include: Old Conns from 20's-40's (2B, 22B, Gustadt), Holton T-102, King Silver Flair & Silver Sonic, Olds Recording, Schilke B1, Taylor Chicago Custom.

Now you...Go !!!!

Yes, the Flip Oakes Wild Thing short cornet. Copper bell. Unbelievable.

I bought a Conn 36B at the suggestion of a fellow trumpet player. I was pleasantly surprised by how it played for me. I was so happy that I bought a second one. Great horns.

As great as they are, I need to sell one of them.

For me the Martin Committee Deluxe lives up to the hype. I've had a 1957 medium bore for several years and just acquired a 1953 large bore. They are extremely easy to play/responsive horns. Another one in that category is my 1957 Selmer Balanced 24A, a super sweet horn, very easy to play/responsive.

I also have a Olds 1947 Super Recording but I like my 1962 Olds Recording better because it gets (to me) a richer sound. Ease of play/responsiveness is about the same.

My Calicchio 1s/2 also lives up to the hype: A flame thrower.

Wild Thing Bb trumpet. I read the hype and the hit pieces. The hype was right.

Wild Thing flugelhorn and Short Cornet. I wrote the hype.

I agree with you on these from your list, but never liked a Schilke B1. Now a B5? Those are nice, never owned one though.

NY Bach, LB. Callet Superchops. Select Harrelsons. Kanstul 1525. Getzen custom reserve flugel, before the hype

Any vintage Conn horn.

My first trombone was a very poor student Conn from 2006 that I overpaid for, which really turned me off to the idea of buying another one of their instruments. Until a few years ago, I played a 6H trombone from the early 50s. I fell in love.
Now I own a custom gold brass 6H trombone and a silver plate 22B trumpet. Some of the best investments I've made.
