10m

  1. Conn
    hi all, for a 10m with serial on body of 352xxx and a 3 digit on the neck of 325 (facing forward on the rim where the neck goes into the body) - what does this neck id mean? is it the number of thousands that should match the body or maybe the factory made necks separately , stamped them, and...

    As much as I really like my 7* Link, it doesn’t really fit every scenario I want to play in. I understand 10ms are very picky with their mouthpieces, so I figured I’d ask you guys what mouthpieces usually go well with the 10m as to avoid buying one that won’t get along with the horn. (I heard...
  3. Bb Tenor
    Not long ago I made a thread talking about my decision to buy either a Selmer Mark VII or a Cannonball vintage reborn. As you can see I got neither, as my opinion was swayed by literally one youtube video (Link below) and I fell in love instantly. I took to Reverb and found a nice looking...

    Hi all. I don't get nearly as much time as I'd like to do these - but here's a classic ballad (thanks to Dexter of course - esp for the ending!) on my lovely 1940s Conn 10M with an STM Florida USA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sONKqUPwVPs All the best to you all, Tim

    I inherited my grandfather's 1944 Conn 10M (with the topless lady engraving). He played it professionally way back in the day, so it's always been well-maintained. I had it serviced and re-padded (roo pads) by the excellent technicians at Melk Music in Milwaukee, WI, but otherwise it's 100%...
  7. Conn
    Hi everybody! I'd like to discuss a topic about the position of the neck octave vent on a Conn New Wonder II tenor neck. Well, I'll try to be straight to the point: I recently acquired a 1929 Conn NWII that makes me very happy tonewise. However the intonation from octave A and above is about 20...
  8. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hello, I'm looking to sell my grandfather's Conn Naked Lady tenor sax. The serial number is M274676. I believe it is a 1936 10M with gold lacquer. It's in very good condition given its age. My grandfather wasn't born until 1930, so he would have purchased the sax used. He played it while in the...
  9. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hi Folks, I have recently acquired a 1936 conn 10m tenor saxophone that has supposedly been "refurbished" but has what appear to me to be 3 damaged rolled tone holes. My instinct is to run fast in the opposite direction, having heard horror stories of rolled tone holes that have been filed...

    Leaving a Cannonball Pete Christlieb vintage tenor for a 10M. Is this wise? I'm 50 and played in junior high school and really want to get good. Had a few lessons via skype with Greg Fishman and David Valdez but my work schedule makes it difficult. Also started transposing various solo's using...

    I saw a Naked Lady and was interested in knowing if it is worth buying a 10M with a later serial like 661,XXX. From the pictures, It clearly has a naked lady engraved into it. The sax is in decent condition and has a micro-tuner neck. Am I going to regret buying this over say a newer...

    My 1936 10M with its original neck is approximately 11-1/4 inches in length. I can get the horn to play in tune, but barely, by pulling off the mouthpiece leaving only about 1/2 inch of cork under the piece. Reducing the wobble is accomplished with a sheet of ordinary Sticky-Notes paper from the...
  13. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    Hello all, I have a vintage Meyer New York 10M soprano mouthpiece. I haven't been able to find other examples of these on the internet and so I am wondering if the facing makes it particularly rare. I am not primarily a soprano player, so I am having a hard time justifying owning such a...

    Hello there, Happy New Year to everyone. After looking at SOTW for ages I have finally taken the plunge and joined so hello to everyone. First and foremost, thanks to all the contributors for a great forum, I have really enjoyed reading all the different articles. I am completely repadding my...

    Just thought I'd share the excitement with some people that I know will appreciate it... The backstory: I've been playing a '59 10m for a few years now, and love the horn. Unfortunately, I've been borrowing it from a family member, and, well, the time had come to be 'not borrowing' it. So I...

    Hi, Picked up the saxophone again after a lot of years. The Sax Shop Muller in Amsterdam reconditioned it very well! I know I still need to practice a lot, but if you have the time please give me some feedback. For the recording of the last video I used a Shure beta 98 h/c i got for my...
  18. Pads and Resonators
    I have a 1936 10M (my typo said 1935 on recent thread, but it's 1936). This is truly a lovely tenor. The issue here is a sticking A pad. I play this horn every day. The pads are black Roo and as far as pads go they have been the best I've had on any horn. I know some prefer white Roo, etc, but...

    My VI is in the shop, but I loves me my trusty '46 RTH 10M as well, and it's nice to be "forced" to play it from time to time. My regular tenor mouthpiece is a glorious Sakshama STM, but I've had this GW Slant for a while and I've never played it before with the Conn. So, from last night's gig...
  20. Tenor mpc
    Hi SOTW! I've bought an old Conn 10m from 1948, and it's in a wonderful condition - love it! I can't find out which mpc a shall get for it. I'm used to playing metal and I want to stick with that. My teacher brought two old florida links for me to try with my new sax and I loved them both! I...
