I just got what can be best described as a factory direct Conn 88HOSP. It may be the prettiest horn I have ever laid eyes on. Looks aside, I knew it would be shipped dry, what I was not expecting was all the white chalky stuff in all the tubes, or the tuning slides to be almost stuck. I had to clean the playing slide 3 times to get rid of all the chalk. So after about an hour and half of cleaning and lubing everything the horn plays and acts like I expected it to.

Is it normal for a horn to come from the factory in this condition? So that it has to have a pretty major servicing right off the get go?

That may be some type of preservative? I would imagine most of their horns are shipped with the idea that the dealer will prepare them.
