The larger bell produces the mellow tone of a standard euphonium; the second smaller bell has a brighter tone, similar to a baritone horn or valve trombone. The instrument is sometimes dismissed as a novelty, but has had a small number of enthusiastic adherents, although few professional musicians use it as their sole or primary instrument.
The smaller bell can give more appropriate tone in the higher range of the instrument. The two bells can also be used for special effects, such as echoes, and using the distinctly different tone of the two bells for a single musician to give the effect of call and response. The large bell is marked 46 and the small bell 15. The values all move freely and fast.
The dings and small dents are shown as well as possible in the pictures. This is an extremely rare C G Conn Double Bell 5 valve Euphonium serial number 228396 model 60I and was born in 1926 made in Elkhart, Indiana. Condition is very good considering the age. You just don't see these often.
