An amazing early example of this iconic tenor 

Condition: In beautiful used, and great playing condition.

Age: 1935

C.G. Conn Ltd made some of the finest saxophones in the world prior to the USA joining WW2 in 1941. The most famous of these were the M series, 6m alto, 10m tenor, and 12m baritone. These saxes were played by some of the all time greats including Coleman Hawkins, Charlie Parker, and Gerry Mulligan to name just a few.  

In terms of ergonomics they feel very different to modern horns. They feel small, fast, and compact under the fingers and do take a bit of getting used to. However; they sound amazing. They are, in my opinion, some of the finest sounding horns ever made. If you can get around the key-work you will be richly rewarded.

This one has the serial number 269XXX and was made in 1935. It has been re-lacquered at some point which has been stripped to leave a lovely patina. It has had key work modifications carried out by Steve Crow and is feeling fantastic under the fingers. It is truly an amazing playing horn and is sure to make its new owner very happy for many years to come. 

As with all of our instruments, trials are both recommended and encouraged. Please book an appointment or get in touch if you would like any more information. This horn is a sale on commission instrument for a customer.
