Conn 1941 '10M' Bb Tenor, #295,xxx
- Year: 1941
- Make: Conn
- Model: 10M
- Status: SOLD
- Finish: Lacquer 30%
- Serial Number: 295,97x
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.
