Re: Conn "Shooting Star" Alto with Strange Serial #
I was given a similar horn about 10 years ago. great condition, 4 digit Conn USA "shooting star" SN is 7701, so I guess it's a little younger than yours. However, mine has a Telex 1k ohm pickup/mic on the neck. No wires or connections, & I've never tried to hook it up. There's a fitting on the top of the neck, & the pickup pops into the orifice. Anyway, it's a great player, & I used it for years. I need to get it tuned up a bit, but I like it a lot, student horn or not.
