Sold Out

This is a unique Conn alto, produced in the early 1980's by Conn under the new ownership of Daniel J Henkin, hence the DJH modified. The engraving features Conn's classic "Naked Lady" engraving on the front of the bell. During this period Conn found themselves reestablished in Elkhart, Indiana and the quality of the early 1920's Conn had firmly been brought back. This horn is a direct reflection of that quality. These were produced as a Conn 108M, and are very hard to find still in working condition. "Daniel Henkin was apparently very fond of producing small numbers of limited pro-line instruments, and would regularly put his name on or around these limited run instruments." This horn would be one of the last ones Conn would sell under their own name. Shortly after 1985 Conn was sold to a Swedish company and was then incorporated into United Musical Instruments or UMI.
Some features of the horn include high F# key, drawn and rolled tone holes, real mother-of-pearl finger buttons, hand engraved bell (naked lady), adjustable thumb rest, and heavy wall construction giving the instrument a good weight and big feel.
The lacquer is in great condition and shows very little signs of major wear. There are scratches around the horn in various places, and some keys with minor corrosion. The Conn has been fully adjusted and the horn sound is very full. Action is smooth and precise. No sign of major or damage. Comes with original neck and case.


This is a really great sounding, amazing feeling, history filled horn. You won't regret this one. It's one of our favorite in the shop.
