1 40H MODEL
2 RARE TO FIND STENBERG PORTRAIT ON TROMBONES
3 SLIDES SMOOTH EXCEPT A BIT NON SMOOTH ABOUT 2-3 INCHES FROM THE STOCKING WHEN YOU HOLD IT IN PLAY POSITION.
IF YOU HOLD THE SLIDE STRAIGHT DOWN IT SEEMS VERY SMOOTH. SLIDES RIGHT OUT. SO TUNING SLIDE WHEN PLAY IN UPWARD POSITION MAY NEED SOME MORE ATTENTION BY YOUR TECH. SEE PIC 12 THERE IS SOME WEAR BUT NOT ALL OVER THE SLIDE. SEEMS TO BE MOSTLY ON ONE SIDE.

7 I HAD MY TECH TAKE OUT AS MANY SMALL PINGS AND SMALL DENTS AS POSSIBLE….THERE WAS ALSO A BRACE THAT NEEDED RE-SOLDERING ON UPPER BELL PIPE SEE PIC 12
8 SLIDE LOCK PRESENT BUT THREADS ARE A BIT WORN. ONCE IT IS THREADED TO THE FULLY ON POSITION IT ACTS PRETTY WELL TO SECURE THE SLIDE. NOT PERFECT I WOULD NOT PULL ON IT REAL HARD ETC.

DEPENDS ON WHERE IT IS GOING. I AM IN PA. IF IT GOES OUT WEST IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE
WHAT THE CONN LOYALIST SITE SAID ABOUT IT
The tuning slide of this instrument is in the slide, not in the normal place. The advantage of having the tuning slide in the hand slide is that this allows the entire bell section to be conical, in stead of there being a cylindrical section to allow for the tuning slide. Not apparent in this particular picture is that this instrument has a gold-wash bell. The 40H has a #3 Bore (0.500″), and was produced between 1925 and 1934.What Conn said in 1931:
The Ballroom model was originally built for dance work and syncopating orchestras, but it proved to be such an excellent instrument, it is being used in a wide variety of engagements. Its .500 bore gives it broad, rich, magnificent tone, which has made it popular in larger orchestras. The bell is set back near the player so it is easy to reach for muting and wow-wow. Extra-long slide bearing prevents slides from sagging in lower positions. The tuning slide is in the slides, a feature preferred by many players. Slide lock, bell lock and balancer are conveniences much appreciated on this model. Built in Bb; bore is .500; 7″ bell.
