Notes: It is interesting that Conn made so many different models of flute. They used Ebonite quite a bit having one very popular model that combined an Ebonite head with a metal body. Ebonite often ages poorly losing its finish, becoming dull and often with a greenish tinge. This example appears just as it would when the instrument was made. This is an especially beautiful Conn flute I owned previously -
