I am thinking about buying a no name stencil Bari from the 50's, that needs some repairs to work on, and later play. It bascially needs an overhaul. Now their is a dent near a tone hole in the pictures. What kind of trouble should I be worried about?

Money trouble.

And then you don't know how good the horn will be anyway after its fixed.

I would like to play a Bari, which is a plus. It doesn't have to major repair condition except for the dent near a tone hole. What kind of trouble could I expect from that dent? And a few minor dents near the bell which is to be expected.

I decided to do some surfing and I can't figure this horn out. Its a Conn, dating to around 1924-25 roughly. I just can't figure out if this is a Conn Chu or 12M or not. This question needs to be answered ASAP though.

Thanks for the replies.

ASAP, eh. I don't think too many people will be in a hurry to answer a question like this. If you can try the horn that would be best. Otherwise, it's just guessing.

.... Do you know if Conn made a "C" or High pitch Bari?
Bit late with the answer, but it was the soprano, tenor and bass which had the 'alternate' pitch of C - i.e. the now Bb saxes - not any of the Eb ones like bari, which had the alternate pitch of F.

There was talk of an early 'F' baritone sax, but I think those were only prototypes.
