Two Finished Projects - Fiber Sousas
The main difference between the Conn 36K and the Conn 22K besides the pistons and lower mouth pipe is the rate of taper throughout the bugle past the 4th branch. The Conn 22K opens up much faster than the Conn 36K. Compare the differences below:
Conn 36K - Conn 22K
Bell Diameter 24" 26"
Bell Collar 6" 7.25"
Bore Size 0.734" 0.734"
Weight 16 3/4lbs. 23lbs.
I think that the Conn 36K is a great all around instrument, but I think you can get a greater variety of colors out of the Conn 22K. This is just my opinion of course, your experience may vary.
Below are pictures of a recently finished Conn 36K.
