Actually many of Conn's brasses are made in Eastlake Ohio at the UMI factory along with Benge and King. Selmer Bach is also in Elkhart i believe. I toured both factories about 13 years ago, of course things could have changed since then. i believe there was just a center of fine craftsmanship that grew up in that area over the first half of the century and generation after generation kept the art going. Also in the past Conn would make instruments for other "companies" such as Beuscher and Pan American, and such, so even though they didn't say Conn on them they still were "Conns". ken k
