Yep!
The bell flare is never touched up (always leave this original), but indeed I did have the main tuning slide, neck pipe, hand holds, and slide crook refinished in epoxy lacquer for durability. Also, the inner slide tubes are new. Lead pipe original, and removable. D.J. is the man too! ;-)

I guess you didn't think that was important enough to mention in your first post...

Oh, that is just great.  Bonesmarsh, self-serving jackass that he is, runs off one of the last remaining pros will to hang around here and share.  For free.  For the benefit of us amateurs.  That is great.

Hey, Bonesmarsh, grow up!  Pretend you are an adult.

Looking for an Elkhart 8H?...  Tired of scammers and flim-flam men?...  Look no further!

This horn actually exists and I am a known quantity. Still available and still a great playing horn!

I'm sure they'll fit any horn with some slight modifications or adjustments!!

I have pencils stashed everywhere!!
Car,  mouthpiece pouch along with reading glasses,  several in  my mute bag,  music folders,  etc....

Probably THE one thing you can't be without!!!!!

Comment: 19I is the King 2280.  I own one.

Thanks, Bruce.  Got my model numbers mixed up.  I think the 2268 is the front-valve model.  Or I am just dreaming...

I have two excellent 4-valve euphoniums and only need one.  So, I will keep whichever doesn't sell.  I like them equally.  Both are great shape and are excellent players.  Original cases are good.  Buyer covers shipping. 

--Yamaha 321 in silver plate.  $1200

--Conn 19I in lacquer.  This is a King 2280 sold as a Conn.  $1200

Just out of the shop!  Conn 8H from 1966.  This is a great playing Elkhart era 8H.  Slide action is very good with no plating wear on the inners.  This horn was cleaned and slide aligned and ready to play.  Original case is in very good shape.  This is a great horn but it is not a closet queen: there have been some dings removed from bell (no crumples) and tuning slide, and the lacquer loss is pretty typical.

Photos later today.

$1100 shipped in the US.  You pay any PayPal fee.

They only serve to make trombonists look like idiots.

 Hi Hi

Here is my 190:

It is the usual King cwt with Benge emblems.  Horn Guys used to have the Benge emblems.  Contact them.

Would a King 3B inner do the trick? If the specs are to be trusted, there is only a .001 difference in the size of the tube. That, and the hand slide looks to be the same length. Can anyone speak to this?

Well, it is the outer diameter at the stocking that matters here.  But you checked a 3B inner and it seems okay, right?  The outer diameter of a 3B inner at the stocking should be .540 (per Allied).  And the length is 28 1/4 inches long.  That should work, I would think.

Perhaps Bruce could split this into a new thread.  Geezer's post above have NOTHING to do with this 3-year-old thread. Don't know

That said, the 2125's from the early 80s are awesome!  I have played several and currently own one.  They are really terrific.  Do-everything horn.  The second iteration of the 3B+ was not quite as good, it seems.

This reminds me of a great tune on the Kind of Blue album. Good!  I can't come up with the name right now...

I have to say... the Gen II 88H's from Eastlake Ohio are pretty darned nice.  They have the King valve - which is excellent.  And they can be picked up at reasonable prices.
