This is a vintage C.G. Conn 14E "Classic" model mellophone, in the Key of F. The Serial number #823628 indicates that it was built in 1959. The instrument just received our professional cleaning, all new valve washers, new water key pad and complete pressure test to check for leaks. The lacquer is in decent condition for its age and there is average wear throughout. The #2 tuning slide is missing the pull nib and has a few dents. Missing the lyre screw. Includes original Conn-Mellophone 2 mouthpiece and original Conn hardshell case (which does have a bit of a musty smell).
