WTB: Conn 20J Bell

Postby cctubaneeds » Tue Sep 24, 2019 11:29 am

I am looking for a bell or bells for a 20J.
I was given a 20J but the person that owns it lost the bell. I would consider new if someone could suggest a suitable bell. I would prefer upright, but front facing is okay to as the horn doesn't work the way it is.

Must be willing to ship to Canada.

Genuine Conn upright bells for these generally seem to sell for about $750 without the bell case, and that is in fairly decent condition, with dents and scratches. Even beat up ones go for a good bit. They are also very hard to find, normally, though a few pop up here and on eBay and such from time to time.

Shipping these would be costly because they need a large box. Shipping in the hard case would probably be safer if one is available, but the cost will shoot up due to the high weight of the case.

The recording bells are a LOT cheaper to buy; I see these selling from $150 to about $300 online (depending on the condition) and they are much easier to find. The hard cases for the recording bells are also much easier to locate. Shipping would be about the same as the upright.

Best of luck! :tuba:
