    1932 6M transitional alto body: Repairable or parts horn only? I'm visiting my friend's moving sale and on a bottom shelf in the garage under a pile of keys and other random woodwind parts, I find a 6M transitional body (no neck) that appears to have either been in an unfortunate incident...

    Got this beauty three days ago. It will take some time to "travel" from my daily Mark 6 routine to the ergonomics of the Conn. Furthermore, everything from mouthpiece to reed feels and sounds different. I have played Marlene (yes, that's her name) for two hours now, and the Otto Link NY Double...

    Hi everyone. I've recently purchased a 1931 Conn Transitional 12M. On the whole intonation is ok, but the middle octave E-F# (that is, an octave below the palm keys) is very sharp: 35-40%. I know these notes are generally sharp on saxophones, but this seems extreme. I've tried several large...

    I found this auction of a Link Double Ring tenor mouthpiece at Ebay: http://www.ebay.de/itm/Otto-Link-Double-Ring-Tenor-saxophone-mouthpiece-/252012334099?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3aad1b0c13 Is this what they call a "Transitional Double Ring"? Besides the fact that it was worked on twice...

    Before I sell/trade this alto Meyer I want to be sure whether it is a USA, or a 'transitional' piece. Thanks in advance for any input.

    I recently unearthed a very interesting old 16mm film reel that has footage of the C.G. Conn factory in 1937. To my knowledge, this is the earliest known film footage showing the interior of the Conn factory. It highlights the process of manufacture of the vocabell brass and shows some of the...

    Hey everyone, I just got a late 55xxx SBA tenor this weekend. It plays well, and there's nothing wrong with it, just a curious question: Is my sax a "transitional" between SBA and Mark VI? It does play a bit like some early Mark VIs I tried in the same shop. Serial number it says M 55xxx, if...
  8. Eb Baritone
    Hi to all, i really need some help with my conn. It's a 250xxx transitional baritone that i bought last year. When i received it, the pads were all diferent and without resonators, some with a small rivet, some totally in leather. the horn was not at its best but it played good, top to bottom...

    This weekend I'm going to have a look at a transitional alto, S/N 256k. I'm excited because I've been wanting one of these in the silver/gold wash finish for quite some time. That, or a 6M. I can't see from the pics on the store's site if this transitional has the 6M style LH pinky cluster or...
