This is an incredible longshot but....... For a number of years I've been hunting for a Conn 16E mellophonium. These are the unique horns that Stan Kenton used in his band in the 1960s and I've decided to step up my search for one so that I can do some non brass band playing. Ideally a complete example is wanted, i.e. including both F and Eb crooks. If anyone has one of these beasts, or knows of the potential availability of one, please let me know. I understand they are fairly rare but they do still seem to crop up at time to time. Anyway, any help, or possible leads to follow up, would be greatly appreciated. If so, however tenuous, please drop me a PM. Cheers!
