Hi, a friend offered me this tenor STM ...
http://s48.photobucket.com/user/lobe67/library/Conn Wonder/Conn Wonder Improved tenor?sort=3&page=1
He bought with his selmer serie 1 tenor. Th mpc is in an average shape with a a very short high baffle before a very low concav baffle ( i don't know if i make myself clear) Very playable in the low register and medium, quiet focused two, but the high register is very bright compared to the link I've tried before.
Anyone have an idea wheter it's just a modern STM or maybe an early babbit ?

Thanks

Laurent

doesn't the number on the shank i.d. it as a latter(current) model?
i had the idea that the number on the side meant early babbit?
Yes, post early Babbitt.
Could perhaps be a long body piece, some of those have a bit more baffle than the current pieces.
But it looks like a long body to me.

Looks very messed-with in the tip baffle area, almost like a Joe V. Dremel job.

That is not Early Babbitt, as noted. But a somewhat desireable "super" tone master in quotes. Those can be players, but looks like Fido refaced it
