C.G. Conn Step-Up Model 52HL Tenor Trombone

About the Model 52HL


The story of the Conn trombone ultimately begins in 1875 with the vision and determination of one man: Colonel C.G. Conn. Founding a band instrument manufacturing company in the small town of Elkhart, Indiana, Conn quickly became known for his innovative brass designs and became the largest producer of trombones in the United States and earned the lasting reputation as "America's trombone house." Conn trombones are recognized for their unique tone color and refusal to "break up" even at the most extreme dynamics making it one of the most widely used professional symphonic trombones in the world. Conn trombones, a future as bright as their past.


The Conn 52HL is a .547" large bore symphonic tenor trombone with F attachment made with an 8-5/8" seamless rose brass bell resulting in a warm, rich colorful sound. The traditional wrap F section promotes clean attacks and stability. The chrome plated nickel silver inner handslide tubes provide the ideal surface for smooth and quick handslide action. The clear lacquer finish provides a subtle warmth to the overall sound. The 52HL is a well designed durable instrument perfect for the students and amateur musicians and is well suited for all types of music. Available in silver-plate finish as model 52HLSP.
