  1. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hello, I'm looking to sell my grandfather's Conn Naked Lady tenor sax. The serial number is M274676. I believe it is a 1936 10M with gold lacquer. It's in very good condition given its age. My grandfather wasn't born until 1930, so he would have purchased the sax used. He played it while in the...

    Hi Folks, I have recently acquired a 1936 conn 10m tenor saxophone that has supposedly been "refurbished" but has what appear to me to be 3 damaged rolled tone holes. My instinct is to run fast in the opposite direction, having heard horror stories of rolled tone holes that have been filed...

    Hi, I am going to sell my 1937 Conn 6M VIII Lady Face alto and was wondering if I could receive a price estimate on it from a few people? It was just overhauled and is a KILLER player. It has chocolate roo pads with flat resonators on it. If there is any more information needed on it to make it...

    http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=171711676379 I thought I knew a lot about Conn baritones, but this is the second one of these I've seen for sale in the past 6mo, and I've never seen one before that (and never in person). It's low A, but it's stamped "12m" instead of...
  6. 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...

    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...

    I'm selling my vintage 1936 Conn 30M Conqueror Naked Lady. Serial # 276xxx. It was relaquered very well in 1994. The engravings are pristine. I had it re-padded last year. It has adjustment screws for each key and nickel silver tips on the side and palm keys. It's considered one of the...

    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...
  11. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    The title basically speaks for itself. 12M Naked Lady or Mark VI? I know a ton of famous bari players have chosen Conn bari's over and over again, but why? And why are they then so much cheaper than the Mark VI bari's? I am really looking into buying a bari, but before I do, I'd like to know the...

    Hi! I'm new to the forum and am interested in finding out the answer to a couple of questions regarding a bari I'm considering buying. First, it's a silver-plated Conn 12M Naked Lady with serial number 675xxx. I'm assuming it's from 1957 according to other serial number lists. I'm...

    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...
