This trumpet is a Conn 2B New World Symphony Serial # 258XXX. At the time it was built, the 2B was Conn's top model trumpet. It has a #1 1/2 bore (0.459") and top spring valves. This is a medium bore trumpet with a bell made of one-piece French brass, giving this instrument unusual resonance and responsiveness. . It has a finger hook and special screw mechanism for setting valve slides when changing from Bb to A. Built in Bb and A.

Pros: Best sounding medium bore trumpet that has ever been made.
Cons: Pinky Ring too small(But hey at least it has one). Parts can be difficult to get.

The Conn Limited 2B New World Symphony trumpet (late 20's era) is without a doubt the finest sounding trumpet that has ever been made. If you want the best sound that you can get out of a trumpet, this is the horn to have. The tone on this trumpet surpasses the sound of any other trumpet. Top valve springs, first u saddle and third o ring. Beautifuly engraved. Fantastic intonation.

Pros: This model Conn plays exceptionally well and is very responsive. I prefer the playability and sound over my Bach Strad.

My personal preference is for older horns as of late. This particular model of Conn trumpet was their top seller during its hey-day and I feel one of the best they've ever produced.
