Always committed to serving the needs of students, music educators, amateurs, and professionals, C. Conn's storied history reflects a dedication for innovation and quest for the ultimate in design and craftsmanship - an industry leader in musical performance.

Also, the serial numbers from 1981 - 1987 for the Brasswinds are for student trumpets and cornets only.

Data for the years 1967 to March 1974 is rather sketchy, for it was around that period of time that the Conn Brasswinds were being manufactured in Abilene, TX.

Some instruments, mostly from the 1920's, have either a star ("*") or the letter "B" stamped near the serial number.

Current thinking is that these marks indicate a non-standard alloy, probably only of the bell.
