Rare 1952 Conn 20KS 4 Valve Sousaphone $4000 OBO

Postby cthompsonjr » Wed Nov 28, 2018 10:48 am

I have for sale an extremely rare 1952 Conn 20KS 4 valve sousaphone. Serial number is 405XXX. Not to be confused with the newer model 40K. I believe the previous owner relacquered the horn with minimal buffing since the engravings are still sharp. He also had the valves replated. There are a fews dings on the back guard. The worst dent is on the bottom, courtesy of UPS! It plays wonderfully even though I believe it is not fully broken in. Included with the horn is a SKB case in very good condition and the bottom bow protector in the pictures. Shipping via Greyhound is included in the price. Please see the link below for pics. Please PM me if you have any questions. Thanks!

Wow! It’s a unicorn!

I’ve only heard rumors of such a horn. Pretty cool.

Why are you selling it?

Have you checked with Simonetti?
To me, this horn is collector level.
Although I hate the idea of it not being played.

Thanks for the reminder! I totally forgot about him. It's been some years since I sold a horn to him, but I'll definitely contact him asap!
