Looking for a loud Conn 10M under $2000?  Since I see a faint engraving, I must say "re-lacquer"; the previous owner was sold this sax as Original, but I doubt that it is. The wear on the bell could be from use, or old buffing. Wear and tear report: A few dents in the rear bow, rolled tone holes that do look like some were flattened, none appear to be filed through the 'roll', no missing set-screws(one was cut into the post to remove--upper octave button post), one replaced pivot screw(C#1), upper bell lip has slight bent (I can help). Overall, it's a complete 10M with a huge, loud sound.

SOUND: This one is particularly "crisp" in tone. I suspect this tone is due to the mostly bare-brass finish.

PADS: the setup is tan pads on smaller flat resos with rivet (similar to Conn originals). Some pads with rivet only. I would guess, depending on use, they are 10-25 years old. They will play as is, with mild tuneups along the way, for another 1-7 years(depending on use).

CASE: a very nice Hiscox case! ($280+).

I would recommend this sax get a full rebuild to be enjoyed fully, however, since it can play great for a while with some tuneups, I will sell it with two prices.
