Would rather not sign up for the Imgur app, so this +1 will have to do.

Is that the original matching 24” bell with that Conn?

That is not the original bell. I got it from a 21J and had it restored with the horn along with the original recording bell.

My Miraphone 187, '56 Silver Conn 20J, '67 Conn 20J, and '67 Conn 24J. Not pictured: one upright bell for the Conns, a euphonium, bass guitar and amps, and all of my wife's woodwind instruments. The upright bell is currently at the shop. I'm getting a quote to have it stripped, repaired, and replated in silver for the '56.

Can never have too many 2XJ's. I had a 20J which got stolen, which is now replaced with another 2XJ. That 1956 20J will be super nice with the silver upright bell once you get it. Nice horns!

That silver one is knocking me out!
All that, plus $8.00, will get you a venti at Starbucks.
Or in my case, a large can of Folgers.

Space is starting to become an issue, if I bring another one home anytime soon I'll be sleeping in the yard. :lol: I'm hoping to get the bell done later this year.

Here is a standalone shot of the silver one.

I don't have many current action shots. Here is one from the JSU Alumni Reunion from 2016 and another from the pit at PLT for My Fair Lady in the spring of 2017.
