  1. Eb Alto
    Hi all, dear sax aficionados, Jean from Italy here - just subscribed to the forum (although I have been following it for a while now). I started playing the alto sax a year and a half ago - took the mild relaxation of work duties (I am a researcher) following the covid-19 pandemic as the supreme...
  2. Conn
    Hey all, This is a followup to a post on my 1957(?) Conn 10m. I have finished overhauling her and the horn plays great with the ebay neck. I did fit the neck by sanding the inside of it with 400, 600, and 1200 grit sandpaper to make sure that it would not mess up my tenon in any way. Tuning is...
  3. Conn
    Hey all! I recently acquired a Conn 10m and I planned on just doing an overhaul on it as I'm a mildly experienced hobbyist repair man. Well, I bought the tenor with the knowledge that it was taken from Conn Elkhart when the factory closed. It arrived in bare brass with no insignia or serial and...
  4. Conn
    I recently acquired a late Conn 10m tenor with no neck. While I would love to find a clean double socket neck, realistically that probably won't happen. The horn is bare-brass and I would rather not have to strip nickel off of the octave mechanism to get it to match. How hard would it be to take...
  5. Conn
    I’m looking to professionally overhaul a conn 6 m. I’ve played 2 conn 6ms before, wasn’t quite drawn to them, but I’m told conns, specifically with reso pads, unveil a conn’s true potential. I’m greatly curious as I always loved Conn sound but never could achieve it. I’m looking for the 6M with...

    I have had since my high school playing days (40+ years ago) a Continental Alto, not a Colonial. I’ve always just assumed it was a Conn stencil from the 1920’s - 1930’s and left it at that. Lately I’ve been interested in seeing if there is a more precise way to date it or if there is a...
  8. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Hi there! I'm here looking for some help on this. I want to change my chinese tenor for something better for a begginer-intermediate level. Now, I have some interesting options. First, a Century Tenor (unknown model) for USD $690, but also horns like a Selmer Bundy II for $650, o a Conn...
  9. Conn
    So I just picked up a Conn Tenor. It has the "Shooting Star" engraving on the bell and a Serial of N 8013. It's my winter project horn for fun. Everywhere that I find serial number identification, all I can tell is it is a Mexi-Conn Shooting Star but most people are referring to 10M, 6M, 16M...

  11. What to Buy & Why: Saxophones
    I'm going to buy an alto sax. I found an ida maria grassi, and a conn shooting star ithat fit my budget. Both are student horns, and seem to be in good condition and well built, the conn is slightly cheaper. Are they any good, or should i keep looking?
  12. Eb Alto
    Hi Just recently acquired a Conn 6m without any serial number or patent marks. Would anyone have an idea as to why? Im surmising its a post 48 model having no tone holes or micro tuner tho it does have a swivel thumb rest often seen on the earlier transitional models. Its in remarkably good...
  13. Eb Alto
    I am fairly new to buying Saxophones. Played in High School but now picking it back up. I bought this for $200. Everything works fine and it plays all notes. I was surprised how expressive/loud this thing is.
  14. Eb Alto
    How does the keywork of the Conn 26 M compare to the 6 M? Is it really an improvement, or is it in the eye of the beholder?
