FS Ebay’s Got a Conn PanAmerican Eb

Not my horn.
Looks Eb. Maybe 1930ish?
Anyone successfully converted one of these to 4v?
Could be a good project horn.

I had one of these many years ago. Used it as a house decoration in college. Someone stole it when I hosted a party. It was not much bigger than a euphonium. I had it serviced to turn it into a project horn at one point. Upper range was nice and low range was horribly stuffy. It worked best with a Bach 1G mouthpiece. Not sure it would make it better with a 4th valve. I think the valve would be a big expense for not much return on playing quality.

Why have 3 valves when you can have 6 and a main tuning slide kicker???

Well thanks for such a clear comment about the stuffiness. Very good to know.
