I appear to have 272xxx in my possession at the mo. Perhaps someone could enlighten me why they're so sought after. Or is 1936 beyond the pale?

There's a 250xxx on the howarth second hand list.
and a 275xxx for that matter.
Both asking £3200- but they've been on there for a while so i imagine they're open to offers.
Depends if 250 is too late for you?

I have a 1934 Conn - and he reason everyone wants one is the sound -modern instruments don't really come close (imho). There's a great article on Bari instruments & quality here - good to read if you're about to buy one:

Good luck with your hunting.

"Good to read" providing you bear in mind it's just one chap's opinion (and not one I agree with).

Joe Temperly plays a Conn Crossbar. It plays to low Bb and has been heavily modified. I have no idea what the changes are.

I'm with you on that, Nick. There were a lot of assertions in the article which were very subjective, and a few which I think are downright cobblers.
