What was the name of the instrument that was dropped in 1955?
A rare instrument indeed, because in 1955 Conn modified both the 12B Coprion and 22B New York Symphony by increasing their weight and adding nickel trim. The 22B Victor (as it was now called) remained in production throughout the 1960’s, but the modified 12B Coprion was dropped in 1955 and replaced by the 10B Victor.
What is a 34B trumpet?
The 34B is an Eb Alto trumpet. Here too, if you have one you’ll know about it. If your Victor has a Coprion bell, it is a 10B. Late models 10B (serials 7xx,xxx-9xx,xxx) also have a Coprion leadpipe in addition to the Coprion bell, earlier models 10B (serials 5xx,xxx-6xx,xxx) only have a Coprion bell.
What is a 28B?
If your Connstellation is lacquered brass with nickel trim, it is a 28B. In that case it will have a serial number dating to 1955 or earlier. The alternative is that your Connstellation is completely nickel plated, in which case it is either a 36B or a 38B.
How to tell what year a Conn is built?
The very first thing you need to do is to check and look up the serial number. The serial number is alway stamped on the second valve casing. Check the number stamped there against the Conn serial number list by Lars Kirmser. This should tell you what year the instrument was built. There are some pitfalls here though. If your instrument has a serial number in the 500,000 and possibly 600,000 range and it turns out to be a 38B Connstellation then a red warning light should turn on in your head. More about that later. Also note that serial numbers on Pan American models don’t match Conn serial numbers.
When were the 15B and 17B made?
The 15B and 17B are 1960’s models, the 14B and 18B were produced in the 1950’s (check the serial number). The late model 14B’s and 18B’s closely resemble the 15B and 17B. Earlier 14B and 18B’s have distinctive diagonal braces. It’s probably a 77B. The 77B was produced from 1957 into the 1970’s.
What is the difference between a 1956-1957 6B and a 1956-1957 22B?
Telling the difference between a 1956-1957 6B and a 1956-1957 22B can be tricky. The 1956-1957 22B has nickel trim on the leadpipe, while the 1956-1957 6B doesn’t. The best way is by the bell size: the 6B has a 5 1/8" bell, the 22B has a 4 5/8" bell.
When was the 36B valve trigger made?
If it doesn’t have a first valve trigger, and never did have a first valve trigger (!), then it is an early model 36B. Probably 1959-1963. Later models 36B do have a trigger and are somewhat more difficult to distinguish from 38B’s. The 38B has a large 5 1/8" bell, the 36B’s bell is 4 5/8".
