3J Button

Postby kmorgancraw » Mon Dec 11, 2017 6:28 pm

Looking for one button that looks like this for my Conn 3J. If you've got one laying around I'd like to purchase it from you. Thank you.

The one on the right looks like a King 2340/2341 button. I'm not sure what they're doing on your 3J, but you can probably get some replacement buttons from Conn-Selmer for an arm and a leg, or perhaps you could find them on Dawkes Music or something for less.

I'll look through the button collection and see what I have.

That one does look like a 2341 button, but it is much smaller than one of those. I believe it is a modern 5J button. But when I look at pictures of a modern 5J, it has felt on the valve cap, where my 1979 3J does not, so there must be some difference. I would contact Conn/Selmer but they have done a good job of not being contactable and make it clear they don't give a flying crap about older instruments. I believe that the button on the right in my pictures is original.

Thanks for looking into your collection edsel.
