  1. Conn
    Hi! An old band mate said he had a Conn tenor to sell and since I'm in the market for a tenor, I have now borrowed it to test play.

    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...
