Conn Victor cornets

by Chris Tyle

Conn ONLY made Victor cornets up until the1950s, when they introduced a Victor trumpet.

The 80A is generally referred to as "the" Conn Victor cornet, although there were other models called "Victor."

Earlier Victor cornets all had the opera-glass tuning; the later models, other than the 80A, did not have the opera glass tuner even though they were called Victor. Seems rather confusing! But then Conn utilized model numbers - 80A, 10A, 8A, 38A - to differentiate. The 38A was the only model with a different Victor name - the Victor Special.
