Conn 88H Tenor Trombone Leadpipe

$70.00 $75.00

Item Details

These are replacement leadpipes for the Generation II Conn 88H and 62H trombones.  They are threaded to insert into a special threaded receiver on the cork barrel of your newer Conn slide.  You already know if you have one of the slides that will accept these pipes.  The threads are unique to Conn, though these pipes may press into other brands of trombones.  Your repair tech can remove the threads from the top ring if you're contemplating a project horn using an older slide.  With the threads removed you can press this pipe into a trombone that has no receiving threads on the cork barrel.  If the pipe fits loosely, some tape wrapped around the pipe just under the ring will hold it.  It's the vintage way to do it.

Regarding the descriptions below, they are mostly straight from the Conn catalog.  I have no idea what most of them mean.  Short or long venturi?  <shrugs>  Good luck.

If any of the choices in the drop down menu imply that we are out of stock, please call or email.  We generally keep an entire set of these pipes in our Long Beach store..

Large

 

Special large shank receiver with a straight taper designed for great flexibility. This pipe is one of the very few that allows a large shank mouthpiece to fit into a medium bore slide. Your mouthpiece may insert slightly less than you are used to, but it's a nice option to have. For SL2525 and SL2547 slides.

 

 

S

.547”

Large

 

Standard large shank receiver and taper designed for traditional response characteristics. This is the stock pipe on fixed mouthpipe Conn 88H trombones. For SL4747 and SL4762 slides.

 

 

M

.547”

Large

 

Standard large shank receiver and longer taper designed for less resistance. This is the John Marcellus pipe, which is more open than the S pipe. For SL4747 and SL4762 slides.

 

 

R

.547”

Large Remington

 

This is the Remington large shank receiver pipe with a longer taper designed for traditional response characteristics. This was the standard pipe in 88H trombones before the Generation II was introduced. Rather than a standard Morse taper as is common in most trombone, this is a more gradual Brown & Sharpe type taper. It's the vintage style, and fits Remington mouthpieces and older Schilke mouthpieces the best. Standard Bach and other Morse taper mouthpieces do not fit as well into this receiver. However, if you insist, the mouthpiece and receiver will eventually get acquainted over time as parts wear together. Plenty of players use Bach mouthpiece in vintage Conn trombones with good success. Your mileage may vary. For SL4747 and SL4762 slides.

 

 

B

.562”

Large

 

Standard large shank receiver with a long venturi & slower taper designed for traditional response characteristics. For SL6262 and SL6280 slides. This pipe is included with the Conn 62H bass trombone.
