Pros: My search is over...
Cons: All other horns seem so dull...

 
Everything we can expect from a professional grade trumpet! The models before the Victor re-naming have a nice art-déco engraving without the little marching men.

Pros: Very easy to play, slots very well
Cons: I can't get the second or third valve slide unstuck

 
This horn was given to me by a guy who played in high school in the 60's I never touched it until I found out what it was. I was a fool, this horn plays beautifully. I'm having trouble getting it into shape though, it needs to be stripped and replated, and all of the slides were stuck when I pulled it out

Pros: easy high register, high quality sound and build, a joy
Cons: only close to perfect

 
As long as the #1 bore is not a problem for you, and major pros at the time did not find it an issue because it plays like an ML, you would be very fortunate to find a good condition "Special" today. Not very many were made, and most were played for years by working pros. I consider the model to be one of the very best trumpets ever made. Make sure that it is engraved "Special", it is truly superior to the standard 22B.

Pros: very easy playing, great upper register, amazing sound quality
Cons: everybody else wants to try it; Conn doesn't produce these trumpets anymore

 
After playing many very high priced trumpets I thought I would give this one a try. It was cheap and I didn't expect much. But this 80-year-old Conn 22B is superior to all of these trumpets. This is by far the very best trumpet I've ever had with the easiest upper register and the most beautiful sound. It feels very handy, it's extremely responsive and a real beauty. It feels nearly like an extension of my body and not like something I have to fight against.

Pros: Very responsive, most beutiful sound i have ever heard from an Trumpet
Cons: None, excellent

 
I recently purchased an Conn 22B from the United States, and i was very positive suprised. The Conn i got hold was also in a very good shape, though it had certainly been in regular use since 1924!
It's an Trumpet i could recomend to everyone, with it's beutiful, sharp Trumpet sound and it's small bore- handling. Just marvelous!
If you ever get a chance on buying one of those Trumpets, don't hesitate!
If you like a responsive Trumpet, with a wonderful sound you won't be dissapointed!

Pros: I had the luck to find a 22b New york Symphony SPECIAL in really nice shape.
Cons: None

 
This needed some work but it is the very best 22b I ever tried !!! There is thread on the Trumpetmaster thread in which a guy boughtt one for 800.00 bucks that needed a full valve job. Well these are that rare and good. Mine didn't need too much to be done but I wanted this one in top shape. It is a keeper !! Don't pass up the chance if you see a NYS Special out there !!! Someone over there also said ( I can't confirm this ) that only about 500 Specials were made. They were made between 1934 and 1941. Yahoo !
