7 1/2 inch Conn trombone bells

Post by Thrawn22 » Fri Mar 20, 2020 10:32 pm

What proline Conn trombone models had 7 1/2in bells? I heard sone 6Hs had that size, but what others? Here's what i got so far for sure:

12H (coprion)
38H (constellation)
77H (intermediate i know)


What else?

Are there 4Hs out there with 7 1/2in bells? There are 77H bells that have the same engraving has the 60s 6H. That'd be good one to get.

Add 32H (Burkle) to the list.

My 1928 6H has a 7.5" bell, highly engraved silver plate w/gold wash flare.

My 1921 Conn 78H has a 7 1/2"bell...they Were available from 7 1/2" to 8 1/2"...i think that bell diameter was pretty optional back then..

Is your 24H the second issue of that model (1940s)?
