Update: using Mozilla Firefox web browser I was able to view pictures. I wish I could buy all these horns from you! I was unable to view the pictures using Safari or Chrome for some reason.

What is the Tabor cut CC Conn made from?

Hello,

Thank you for the info on the browser troubles. If anyone has a suggestion for a better way to share photos, please feel free.
I used to use photobucket, but find it too glitchy now.

The Tabor made Conn has the cut body of a bell front BBb Conn Monster from the 20's or possibly earlier.
The valve set was the original valve set on my CC Donatelli. These are .689 bore and are a bit worse for wear, but still perform.
The detachable upright bell is the tenon from the original front bell, and the rest is from a cut 10J bell.
This horn is comparable in size and sound to the Donatelli. The Original bell front without the tenon will be part of the sale.

PM me for any further info!
