FS: Conn 36J w/ Kanstul Reproduction Bell

Hi all,

I am looking to sell my 1933-1934 Conn 36J with both original bell-front bell and raw brass upright Kanstul reproduction bell. This was Ken K's horn, as seen here: http://forums.chisham.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=74713&hilit=36j. All of the things that Ken said in his original ad are true. And to reiterate what Ken had mentioned in his post, the valves were replated and have plenty of pop. I have gotten lots of compliments on the sound and I have found the intonation very workable for such a large horn, I just realized that I am a rotor person and would like to find a solid CC rotor horn. I also miss 5 valves more than I ever thought I would.

My pictures are here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/arqg5ensl882zmd/AAAV94ywi8c49Lb7IaZJ50FLa?dl=0
There is a little bit of tarnish on the horn, as I use it almost daily, but I'd bathe and polish the body and both bells before I'd hand it to its new owner. There is some plating wear on the bottom bow and on a couple of the contact points as well. There is still the patch on the leadpipe, but it does not leak and I have been told that a replacement would not have the horn play the same. I can take a picture of the recording bell, but it needs a significant polishing unless you want to see it as it currently sits.

I would be selling it with both bells and a Pro Tec gig bag. It is the large one and it fits it quite well. It would be for $4300 for everything. It's a bit higher than what I paid at Dillon's as Ken had to charge a bit more for listing it there, but it did not come with the gig bag when I bought it and I am willing to drive it 11 hours or so. The horn and I are located in Eastern CT, so that puts me somewhere around North Carolina going down the coast or Columbus, Ohio if we go West. The extra is me driving it to you and then getting a flight back home. Shipping the two bells and the body would be much more. And shipping is out of the question. Please do not ask.

If anyone would like to come to me, I can meet you up to an hour away from where I am and I will lower the price accordingly.

If anyone has any question, please feel free to PM me. I will respond as soon as I can with as much accurate info as I can.

Thank you for your interest in advance and I hope you have a great one!

Neat tuba, and yes, a world away from a 5v rotary CC. I bet this sounds awesome in a large band.

Thanks! I definitely think so!

I definitely wanted to go to something big when I got it, but now that I've had a fair amount of time with it, I know at least a little bit what I like.

It really does. I can easily support a band of 35 and overpower them when I want to.
