  1. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I'm looking around for a bari. Of course the best place to look is local because who wants to ship a bari? I found a Conn 12M freshly overhauled near me with really nice pictures - even pictures of the restoration process which the seller did himself. Looks like good work, but of course hard to...

    Hi, It's been a while since the last time I've posted here on sotw, I've been pretty busy in the last two months...with both music and family... Anyway...I've spent the last two days in the studio recording my third album, and I now am really happy! The organic is trio : me on baritone sax (on...
  3. Conn
    Hi - I was on my way back from a business trip and decided to stop at a local Sam Ash music, just to browse. My attention was immediately drawn to a Conn 11m that was laying on the counter. It was labeled as a 12m, but I knew that it wasn't. The salesman let me borrow a mouthpiece (some crappy...

    Hi everyone- I recently acquired a Conn 12M Bari with a serial number that dates it to 1958/9. I got it from a seller on Reverb. The sound is amazing, but I find that compared to my H Couf Superba Ii Bari, the keywork is very heavy and the 12M is much heavier. I had read that adjusting to...

    This is a video that a friend of mine shot at my last gig...sorry for the videocamera angle, but he captured the sound decently. I've been playing this silver conn 12m for 2 years. The more I play it the more I love it! Bye, Fabrizio

    Hi, I've just recorded a new video playing my baritone set up. Conn 12M and otto link slant signture mouthpiece. I played "stella by starlight" acapella. I love practicing standards alone or just with a metronome, I thing it's the best way to practice the changes because you can count only on...

    Hi everyone. I've recently purchased a 1931 Conn Transitional 12M. On the whole intonation is ok, but the middle octave E-F# (that is, an octave below the palm keys) is very sharp: 35-40%. I know these notes are generally sharp on saxophones, but this seems extreme. I've tried several large...
  8. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I am considering buying a bari mostly for doubling (big bands, horn section etc). I spotted this on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/140783828339?_trksid=p5197.c0.m619 Can anyone give me any advice as to whether this is a good buy? Is it a fair price? I live in the UK so I would have to have it...

    I bought a 1957 12m a couple weeks back and I LOVE this horn. It's just..great. Anyway, I'v noticed when I get to A2 (above the staff) the sound gets very airy and kind of nasty. This is consistent from A2 up to C3. I noticed that if I press the octave on the neck down, it easily brings the...

    I live just a couple miles away from junkdude (GREAT shop) and they have this 12m stencil up for sale. https://www.junkdude.com/ProductDetail.aspx?id_product=2971 It needs a full overhaul, but I still really like it. Thoughts or ideas? Any place to maybe get one cheaper? Oh and sorry if...

    Hey All, I am having trouble with intonation on my 12m and also need that big band sound for my big band. I found that the Brendan Tibbs site says it helps with just that. Does anyone have any experience using the Brendan Tibbs Bari mouthpiece on a Conn 12M?
  12. Baritone mpc
    Hey Everyone, I recently bought a vintage woodwind company mouthpiece with a double chamber that makes my Conn so in tune it's crazy. I love it. I was playing today in my big band and my instructor stopped the band in a middle of a song to ask me where my sound was today. I, of course...
  13. Cases
    Has anyone heard of the cases by Michael Manning? Does anyone own one by him? What is his usual price range for a bari case if known?
  14. Cases
    As the title suggest I am looking for if anyone owns a Conn 12M and knows if it fits in a BAM case. Please do not post by looking at the BAM sight and saying that it should or shouldn't fit. Only post if you know for sure that it does or doesn't. thank you.
  15. Eb Baritone
    Hi to all, i really need some help with my conn. It's a 250xxx transitional baritone that i bought last year. When i received it, the pads were all diferent and without resonators, some with a small rivet, some totally in leather. the horn was not at its best but it played good, top to bottom...
