LOVELY 1935 PAN SILVER 40b VOCABELL CONNQUEROR. THESE WERE ONLY MADE FOR A FEW YEARS 1932-41 SO THEY ARE RARER THAN THE 48B’S WHICH WERE MADE LATE FROM 1938-51.
1 TECH SERVICED
COMPRESSION REALLY GREAT.
NO SIDE PLAY WHEN VALVES HELD DOWN HALF WAY AND WIGGLED
ALL SLIDES POP LIKE HELL
I TOOK EACH SLIDE OFF AND DEPRESSED THE VALVE FINGER BUTTON DOWN. BLEW HARD AND COVERED THE THE SLIDE HOLE ON THE TRUMPET THAT CORRESPONDED TO THE SLIDE THAT WAS PULLED.
NO AIR ESCAPING

4 I SEE NO FORMER REPAIRS OR DENTS
5 ORIGINAL SILVER FINISH SHOWS SOME PLACES OF WEAR ON TOUCH AREAS AND 2ND SLIDE. ALSO SOME WEAR ON FRONT OF VALVE CASINGS WHERE SERIAL NUMBER IS. ( SEE PIC )

WHAT CONN SAID ABOUT THESE 40B’S
>Notice the vocabell (rimless), the octagonal valve casings and the position of the third slide finger ring. In case you are wondering: the valves themselves aren’t octagonal. Also note that the position of the third valve slide and the tuning slide on the third valve casing are reversed from the usual/modern way.
Apparently the instruction manual said of the valves: “Use distilled water on the valves. Only inferior horns need oil lubricant”. The 40B has a #1½ (0.459″) bore, and was produced from 1932 to 1941.
