Yep, rare as hen's teeth. And this is about what they go for a la carte.
I don't think the bulk of folks who uses forum actually look at this subforum that much. I'm tempted to repost this in the for sale section and get a rap on the knuckles.

I dunno. In the past 3 years i have seen quite a few pop up. As the amount of people who regularly played these big horns decide its not worth it anymore and "retire" to a smaller horn...we could be in the midst of a conn 2xj upright bell renaissance...now if only the martin upright bells would start appearing...

I think the problem for both the Conn 2xJs and the Martin Mammoth could be easily resolved by a clever importer importing Chinese-made clones of those bells or perhaps a tighter focus 22in version.

Dan Schultz imports both 186 and 1291 Miraphone clone bells. I'm sure the same factory could probably figure out how to make a Conn or Martin bell.

I really feel the right setup could be a license to print money, or at least a nice sideline for someone.

Good seller, Taylor music out of South Dakota. They refurbish a lot of tubas.
Always worth a call if you're looking for a Conn or King Bell. Or even other American makes for that matter- Olds, Selmer et cetera

I agree. The price on the 2XJs has gone down in the past few years. Too many players downsizing. I have a friend in that boat with his 21j. Too heavy and awkward at his age. If he could get 1000 out of it right now he would be lucky. Id buy it from him but i already have both bells fo mine.
