Conn Artist Symphony Trombone

Post by Hudsonband » Mon Jul 01, 2019 2:19 pm

I have a silver plated large bore f attachment trombone that has on the bell C.G. Conn Ltd, USA, Artist Syphony. The slide has the serial number of 315808. I thought this was an older 88H, but the serial number does not seem to match the list I found find for 88H's. I am wondering if this is really an 88H.

Thanks for any ideas.

Artist Symphony is used post-Abilene. There should be a model number somewhere near the serial. Also, there should be some letters before the numbers in the serial.

Most likely it's 21st Century. And yes, it's an 88H.
