Early Model (First Edition) Conn 10A Long Cornet!
Seriel #616002 – 1956 (1st Year Model)
I can’t put this Long Cornet down! The coprion bell is beautiful and makes this horn so smooth and dark! The valves are easy and responsive you will think you have a Getzen in your hands.
I highly recommend buying a Vintage Conn 10A to experience the sound and beauty. I have wanted one of these for years and years and it’s fantastic. I have been on a bit of a vintage Conn kick and there is a great reason why these horns are collectible beauties.
