Cool! My soprano cost $110.00 when it was brand new.


edit: plus the $7.50 case.

I have the full 1923 brochure. I've been meaning to make it a project to scan it and provide it to the forum. Just haven't figured out the best way to do that. Any suggestions other than a mass CD mailing?

Here's the front page.
Could you just scan it as a pdf and then link us to it. I would love to see it!

Thanks, Grumps. Don't know how I missed this one.

Very cool post. Old brochures with prices are always interesting. If only it were a few years later and included the "Tipped bell" Bb soprano and straight alto.

Great reading, Grumps! I enjoyed reading the chilling adventures of Commander MacMillan, and I am frankly riveted to learn if ever saxophone broadcasts were transmitted from a frozen in crew on the North Pole...

Interesting too, is that on more than one site i've read that C-melodies were marketed as a cheaper horn for simple parlour fun. But this price list makes clear that they were priced exactly like the other type of horns.

I've got a 1924 C. G. Conn Saxophones brochure and sales leaflets that came with it... All about the New Wonder horns.

They could be heard just above the wild ravings of those eating canned food from lead containers.

I wonder if there's a place on the forum we could put these things, rather than trying to link them to other sites?

Yes, and actually they all were saxophonists who strangely dragged their horn collections across the Arctic. Unfortunately, they thought the Northwest Passage for which they were seeking, was missing sheet music...
