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 100% authentic and original, but you all of course can be the judge.


Feel free to ask any questions or make any comments that could help me. I've never owned a horn like this before, so everything you can share is greatly appreciated.

Plays very well considering it most likely has the original pads still on it. Will need to be gone over eventually, but works fine now.

What an absolutely fantastic looking alto. Get a top-shelf overhaul on this one; spare no expense. Instruments like this, especially in this condition, are just too rare in these days. Cherish it; that is a piece of history.

Congratulations! That's a beaut! I say: don't go to fast on the new pads. My 1937 10M tenor plays fine on the original pads -well, one or two were replaced, but with the original rings. Especially with Conn, you want to have the Res-O-Pads, which were designed specifically for this horn - in this link is explained why. They seal? - then don't worry!
I am a real sucker for these lovely books you got with the horn - I should go look for one that applies to my tenor.

Welcome to the club and congratulations on finding such a nice horn! With Connie in the house, life will never be the same again, especially since she insists on parading around topless :mrgreen:.
