Re: Recently acquired Conn Sax
a close friend of mine sent me this while doing some research for me: The Serial number dates it to 1917 not a whole lot of gold plated horns where made then. It was the same year John Philip Sousa had a gold plated horn made for every one in his outfit. JPS is one of the foremost band composers and inventor of the Sousaphone
does this seem to be true information?
