Conn 1935 ’26M – Connqueror’ Eb Alto, #269,xxx (Archived)

SOLD - A deluxe Conn "M series" sax - loved for the Silver key touches and the ornate engravings, and the added key height adjustment engineering. NOTE: I would normally have to charge the $299.00 up-charge to rebuild this sax if it walked in. I personally do like the adjustments on these saxes for their purposes. However, they still require extra time to adjust the sax and dial it in. And thus, this is why these models give repairmen headaches ... if they don't know what they are doing. Ser.# dates it to 1935. CASE: It arrived with a non-original Selmer case in solid shape. I'm happy to discuss RE-ENGRAVING (solo) as part of the rebuild process along with your choice of pads and resonators. This sax will be a sweet sounding sax - Rebuild included in the price, as usual.

Berg Larsen ‘110-2-x’ Tenor, 1940s Duckbill, Boat tail, (RAC reface)- 0.105″

SALE $360.00 - Saved by Bob Carpenter (due to a poor refacer), this is one of the rarest of the rare Bergs and it comes with original brass ligature and cap! It was messed up arriving at an unplayable 0.080" but Bob brought it back up to 105! wow. Considering that this mouthpiece was badly altered previously, I can't ask the +$700 that these demand. I will price it at a comparable vintage Berg price. SOUND: It play very bright! I would give it a label of "105-0-L" for custom measurements. The 105 being the tip, the "0" being the very bright baffle tone, and the "L" for the 48mm "long" facing length. Item: WWS2.2S5.11291.5-BC75
