  1. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hello. I have Conn New Wonder 1918 tenor and there are couple of dents, on the body mainly. if I fix these dents and dings will it harm the sound of this model? I'm not sure abouth thickness of the metal here. I heard it won't be necessary to fix dents from the outside since it's already...
  2. Eb Baritone
    Hi to everyone! I've got a Conn Bari #180xxx Low Pitch, in excellent shape. It plays well with a big sound but... it's really out of tune on some notes, especially from high G to C. There's no suitable position for the mp (I have a Gottsu HS8), it goes too far and drops down. The previous owner...

    Hello. I recently purchased a conn soprano saxophone (1922 by serial number) in the artist's special finish. I found a loose key post when inspecting the saxophone, but I still bought it. I need to know what kind of solder these horns use, and if my local repairman could possibly damage the...

Conn Ltd, and has the smooth G#. It's satin silver with gold inside the bell. It's definitely a "forgotten" horn...
  7. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    So I have a Conn New Wonder S1 Alto that I want to sell. The finish is in good condition, and the pads are in good shape (but not original). The only problem is the neck. It's got the matching serial number, and again the finish is in good condition. BUT the pad on the octave key doesn't sit...
  8. Necks
    Hi, does anyone know if there are size differences between the neck of a High Pitch Conn tenor versus a neck from a Low Pitch Conn tenor? To my naked eye, just looking at pictures, it appears the same, but I know better than to just rely on that. Reason I ask is I'm trying to track down a neck...

    Guys, I recently bought a vintage conn from 1920's. Needed your comments and info on this model (1119954 A M143904 L). How is this model inferior or superior to Chu Berry or the later models ? What are the pro n cons of this model by itself. It needs some pads replaced, one Mouthpiece thumbscrew...
