My 1958 Conn Director, sold as an intermediate instrument, is made of
gorgeous wood that never cracked, despite very hard use from 1958 =

I have a copper bell Conn Director trumpet that I learned on in high =
school (played trumpet before I played clarinet). I still have it and =
still play it, even though it is a student horn. It was an easy blow =
(don't even go there!) and it was always beautiful to look at. I had it =
stripped, buffed and relacquered by Steve Fowler in 1978 and it is =
beginning to show signs of wear again. It isn't worth much monetarily, =
but everyone who sees it comments on its striking looks. I wish all =
student instruments were as nice as that trumpet.
