New Member - Conn Soprano question

Hi, all! Love this forum. I have a straight soprano, Model 22 Conn silver - gold washed bell that I just love. Over the years, I've figured out how to play it in tune and voice it to overcome its imperfections. Now, I've REALLY got the itch for a CURVED horn, but I've never seen a Model 22 curved soprano. Does such a horn exist? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Model 22 was a Selmer horn last time I checked, not a Conn. But no, nevera curved one as far as I was able to tell

    I played a "Selmer USA" curved soprano from around that time that was really a stencilled Conn. Played pretty nice.

      Look for a Conn 4M curved soprano. They are rare, but one of the nicest curved sopranos ever made.

      Of course, I mean vintage sopranos. Of the new curved sopranos, the Yanagisawa would be the one to buy. Typically the intonation is better on the straight sopranos
