    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...

    Hi all - number 9. 'The Masquerade is Over' on this lovely 6M. Florida STM 7* mouthpiece. A bit less mellow and chilled than many of the takes in this mini series I've done - and perhaps a bit less polished - but hope you enjoy nonetheless. Please share/follow whatever blah blah blah. All help...

    6th in the series... Everything Happens to Me on a Conn 6M. (mpc: Florida STM 7). Thanks for all the encouragements. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9IzbbLF8OU Aim is to get to 10, though I have something a bit more ambitious planned for at least one of them... if I can get my brass lip into...

    Short comparison video of these two lovely horns. (The 6M is a viii version) Same selmer classic mpc (1950s) and reed on each, so the comparison as as near as possible. No reverb or EQ at all. For me, what's noticeable is how similarly they record. Anyway, hopefully interesting for some of you...

    The 6M was designed for big band and jazz play. It's great! But how does yours sound for concert/symphonic band or occasional classical-like solos? I've tried multiple mpc, reed and lig. setup combinations, even a "double embouchure", and don't get close enough to my perceived "liquid gold"...

    I found pictures of an old Conn alto, not too sure what model though; looks like a 6M. If anyone could identify the model, that would be great! Pictures are below. Thanks! -Nick

    Hello. I'm faced with a problem. I'm looking at three great horns that I want to buy, but I can only get one. They are online, so I have to buy it to try it but there are returns. The first horn is a 196*** silver plated King zephyr in almost perfect condition for $1600. The second is a conn 6m...
  8. Pads and Resonators
    I'm in the process of overhauling a 1937 Conn 6m Naked Lady. I'm trying to decide which pads I want to use on it. I've never worked with rolled tone holds so I'm unsure of what to expect with this. Does anyone have suggestions/advice for my situation? I'm considering roo pads or pads from...

    I'm thinking of buying a Conn 6m and need some advices. First off...what years are the best? I've read on saxpics.com that the conns made between 1935-1937 are generally considered to be the best of the 6m's... Or are there no differences? What do I need to think of and what do I have to know...

    I saved and waited over a year for the right deal to come along, finally found a 1936 6M on craigslist in what appeared to be excellent condition with crisp, clean engraving. I paid a fair price as it had original pads so needed an overhaul, and from multiple pictures and description (the owner...

    I'm looking at a Conn 6m tenor, and the guy says the serial number is 816808, when would that have been made? My best guess is late 60's, early 70's. Also, what would this thing be like as far as keywork, intonation, and "features" be like. I know it would't have rolled tone holes or that...
  12. Cases
    I just got an old Conn 6m "Lady Face" alto sax fixed up, but I need a new case for it. I actually don't have a case at all for it; the previous owner threw it out and almost the old horn, too. With the way old Conns are made, the sax doesn't fit in any of the few cases I've looked at in person...

    Well, here it is, my Conn 6M that I got off of eBay. I think I paid a little too much for it, but its in pretty good shape. From what I heard, this horn was bought out of an estate sale by the sellers WWII vet uncle before he died. When the seller got a hold of it, he sold it. Everything seems...
