*This cannot be a Conn serial number. I believe it to be a King serial number after UMI had taken over and I’d estimate the date of manufacture around 1986. All of the older Conns that I’ve seen have the model number stamped on the slide receiver. This one has the model number stamped on the bottom nickel ferrule on the outer slide and nothing on the slide receiver.
Regardless, it is a 6H slide with the rose brass outer slides and this is an excellent playing slide matched with a Conn Artist bell. I tried the slide with Slide ‘O Mix and rates a 10! The Eastman case holds the bell snugly and provides outstanding protection for the horn. (See the testimonial from “Bob from California”)
**Yamaha slide oil is a relatively new product. It is not petroleum based. In fact at first glance, it looks to me like the liquid in the large Slide ‘O Mix bottle. I’m told by one of my reliable sources the slide doesn’t require very much at all and it lasts for quite a long time on the slide (like a week if playing regularly). A touch can be added to the slide during performance if necessary. Also, just a little spritz of water will keep it going. As with all the horns listed, we have additional pictures.
