This is a rare Conn 24H "Ballroom" Model Tenor Trombone. The 24H has the tuning slide in the bell, and had light weight slides. This trombone from 1932 (S/N 282xxx) has a #2½ .484" bore, 7" gold wash bell. There also is a 24H model which was reinstated by Conn in 1958. Apparently Si Zentner played the 24H a lot. This trombone is in great shape with decent slide action and great balance. We have spot silverplated a few spots on the trombone to keep up with the silver plating. A great horn for trombone players for that early jazz sound and section playing!
What Conn said in 1931 about the 24H:
The most popular trombone in the Conn line. As the name implies, this model combines the fine qualities of both the Artist model and the Ballroom model - two Conn trombones that have made trombone history. Built in medium bore, it has the same magnificent tone as the 4H Artist model. Added to this are the great many attractive features which have made the Ballroom model a great favorite. The bell is back near the player so it is easy to reach for muting and wow-wow. The slides have extra-long carriage which prevents sagging in lower position. Bell lock for locking bell and slides together, and the slide lock which prevents slides from dropping to the floor and becoming damaged are valuable refinements. Tuning slide in the bell; balancer standard feature. Unusual delicate balance and ease of handling feature this model.
