I just wanted to thank everyone who has emailed me about this great sax. I can't believe my luck. I thought I would post some photos.





















Thanks again, and I'd love to hear any more comments from the all the mod Conns!

GORGEUOS! Congrats. Does your lady have more of an afro as opposed to the long locks? I can't tell.

Awesome - silver, and with (what appears to be) a New York neck, no less. Congrats! You'll thoroughly enjoy your new, aged lady. Treat her well!
Connquerors are fantastic, versatile horns. I love both of mine (alto and tenor) - I wish they'd made sopranos and baris, too!

You're right - my bad. Never try to identify a sax after doing shots of single malt. :sign6:
I've had that problem as well!



That is a BEAUTIFUL horn- like Jason says, it has a few Chu-ish traits, which makes it all the more interesting.


There is a joke here somewhere about a Chu-ish Naked Lady...

ARGHHHH!!!!!! ITS NOT FAIR.....:blob:



OK... I'm back...... from a two second pity party just for me, ( and you're not invited) :D

What a beautiful horn, and I'm really glad she found you. It seems that there are some killer deals to be found once in a blue moon. I've found a few outstanding mouthpieces for dirt cheap, but nothing like this. This is like a lotto winfall. It sure pays to be withen walking distance of a music store when they have stuff on sale.

Have you found your killer mouthpiece for it? It just never stops, the march of the GAS drum..... ;)

Hey guys,

It's a player (even if I'm not)! Brought it to the bar Sunday--if only to make the "vintage" guitar guys a little envious. It's good to know so many of you guys would be willing to help me out should I decide to sell it :D

I've tried a few mouthpieces--surprisingly, the one that sounds the best so far is a Meyer metal jazz! I'm getting a Rovner replacement lig for it.

The next thing now though is a case. It won't go in my Protec contour case, so I'm using a cheapo gig bag. Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Rory

ps. the microtuner works like it was new!

Get Something Quick

What ever you do, do it quick. A cheapo gig bag is no protection at all ( from dinks, bops, and drops). It may look cool to walk into a joint with your ax slung over your shoulder in a gig bag, but, have the front door wack you in the sax on the way in, and you will be crying!!! So, get some protection!!! It's a scarey world out there...... ;)
