For sale is a gorgeous Conn 10m Naked lady with rolled tone holes!
This is a prime 309xxx 1943 1944 war era Conn. There were overall very few saxophones made these years. World War II was 1938 to 1945.. During 1942-1945 Conn started making gear for the war and there were a total of 6000 horns made combined for those year.
These war time rolled tone holes are some of the most sought after Conn around. Many people say being they removed most of the machines for new tooling that those horns made were mostly hand made with extra TLC.
his horn is being sold and has its fair share of scratches, knicks, dings, dents, fleabites, metal wear, patina, repair marks and other anomalies associated with such an old vintage horn.
This sax is a relacquer! Wait whaaaat?????
Yes! This is one of those weird cases where the horn looks so amazing its really hard to tell if its original or relaq, Thowever for sake of the listing and clarity Im calling the horn a relacquer.
This being said this horn is an absolutely stunning! The engraving is detailed and crisp with the lady of the hour, our favorite 10m engraved women surrounded by the engraved corn stawks the surrounded the Conn factory.
This is an amazing playing Conn 10m! The horn has a HUGE sound on it. Think that larger then life huge wall of sound but with that wide spready dark lush fullness.
When I play this horn I instantly get Dexter Gordon vibes!
This horn plays tremendous top to bottom and does that Conn 10m thing so so good. If your looking for a great Conn 10m theres no doubt this horn will satisfy!
I have just bought this horn directly from a great saxophone repair tech. While the pads are older on this horn repair tech has done a full setup and number on this horn!
Those older pads were reseated, he adjusted a bunch of the action, replaced cork and felts all over the sax, re corked the neck, regulated the horn, worked on the leaks, lubricated , etc.
Again this horn has older pads but man does this horn play!
The horn is fully setup and feels great in the hands with no clicks clanks loss of motion at all. The horn is ready to play out of the box, but at one point you to put new pads in. The horn wont require much work to get those pads in as its fully setup so nice!
This horn has its fair share of scratches, knicks, dings, dents, fleabites, metal wear, patina, repair marks and other anomalies associated with such an old vintage horn!
Tech work is expensive so this is a great feature that the horns ready! Take alook at all the new cork and material ive pictured in the up closes shots.
This sax comes with its original matching Conn case which is worth a pretty penny on its own!
This horn has a great neck with it! The neck is solid and strong in the hands and feels great. The horn is loud and proud and will not dissapoint!
