    Hi friends, A little 20 second YouTube teaser for my pre-recorded gig for Cambridge Jazz Festival - streamed tomorrow at 8pm UK time, FREE to view. Tasty 10M as usual :) The gig is 'plays Gordon at Girton' - a set of some of Dexter's classics. Details here: Tim Boniface plays Gordon at...

    Hello Everyone! I just want to start off saying that this is is my first posting. After purchasing a vintage conn Tenor and going down the rabbit hole of learning about what it is, I discovered that it is a Naked Lady Transitional from 1934. Now After dragging this thing around with me for a...

    Hi all, Here's my 10th and final Lockdown Ballad, the lovely 'That's All'. This one's recorded on Conn 10M and Conn 6M saxes (both with florida STMs) plus a shiny very un-vintage flugelhorn + keyboard! Thanks for all the encouragements along the way. Do hope you like this. A more bona-fide...

    Nearing the finish line then... here's #8 of the 10 I said I'd do. As usual, 1944 10M (rth) w Florida USA Otto Link STM (silver plated - long story!) A bit more time spent in the upper register here. Might have considered re-doing for tuning but oh well :) All the best to all, Tim...

    Mildly anxious at flooding this forum section... but the responses so far have been lovely and encouraging; so here's the next 'Lockdown Ballad' (man, I miss playing with others so much!) Enjoy, I hope. Setup: Conn 10M, Otto Link Florida USA Super Tone Master 9, Jazz Select 2H reed...

    Hi all - this week's 'lockdown ballad'. Difficult to chose whether to do this on alto (6M) or tenor but this one did the business I think. I tried it on a transitional as well - a horn that I usually prefer live to the 10M, but the 10M records so well. Mpc is a Link Florida USA STM 9*. Enjoy...

    Good day I have a question to people who had a chance to compare two Conn 10m tenors How do you like the toaster rack edition from 1934-35 (has no 10m stamp above) vs regular prewar 10m? I had a chance to compare them and found that the ones with regular keyguard weigh less while the toaster...

    Hey everyone! I just bought this Conn 10m '66, with this funny relacquered keywork and body, I had no clue how it sounds, just wanted to buy lower price 10m and I was a little bit scared for the relacquered status, but since price was low I decided to buy it me and my teacher play tested this...
  13. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I have just purchased an Agility Winds tenor saxophone from Tempest Musical Instruments in Texas. My previous horn was a Buffet SuperDynaction with a serial number of 7197. It had reached the end of the line and required a complete overhaul. This would require a huge outlay of cash which would...

    Hi all, I'm very fortunate to have acquired a very nice mid 40's 10m. Posted a youtube video of my first real go at it. Played with early babbit STM (9). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhmZ88KReXQ Feels like a really nice horn, though still getting used to it a bit. Tim
  15. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I recently purchased a Conn 10m, (serial number 270, XXX) and it's in need of some repairs, probably an overhaul. Also I'm pretty sure it's been relaquered, so I'm not sure what damage that did or did not do. Anyway I need to find a repairman or place to have it repaired. I live in Southern...
  16. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hey guys, I have a very, very good condition Conn 10M Naked Lady and I am not sure if I should sell it or keep it in storage. Will it grow in value like a good Mark VI is basically what I am asking? I am at work now and don't have the serial number to look up the specific make year. But this...

    Hey everyone, I may be considering trading my Purple logo YTS-62 (in great playing condition, but with a fair amount of scratches, logo is half gone, etc.) for a Conn 10M from 1950 (recently overhauled, at least 90% original lacquer, no dents). I have yet to play test it (I love the ergos on my...

    Saxon's, Check out this beauty. I get nervous when I take it out of the case! The original owner passed away and she had bought it new and played it when she was in College in the 40's and then put it in the closet. Even the case is minty. I'm going to try to post a slideshow, which I haven't...

    Hi everyone, I have a '36 Conn 10M that desperately needs some tender loving care, and being on an extended visit to the UK, I am not sure what the best options are for me. The sax needs an overhaul and a few bits and pieces sorted out. The troubles are: * New pads, springs, cork etc (regular...

    I'm still a little elated. I've only put about 15 minutes into the horn. I stopped by a pawn shop about 3 years ago, downtown. Conn 10m, beautiful condition, brass finish, laying on its case on the floor behind the counter. Looked like it hadn't been picked up in years. 1499.99 was asking...
