An affordable 10M - Yeah Buddy! Don't knock on the 60s era 10M too harshly. It still sounds like a 10M, but the snobs will overlook this horn. Trust me, it's good but obviously is no match against a 10M from 1935-42 ($3000-5500 duh). These are built like tanks, seriously - very STRONG, thick metal. It's great for the 'rough' player or venues.

Don't worry about the dents on the bottom bow; they will come out nicely.  It will need a pants guard and I think my friend has one (TBD). Double-socket neck has some heavy denting and pulldown that we will have to fix in the process also. I already helped 50% of the denting after the photos.

SOUND: This one has "Conn" tone, and "that 10M tone" but with the '60s reputation. (I'm trying to say that it still sounds like a Conn 10M, but it's not the $3,500+ crisp/resonant-tone that comes from the 1930s/40s... This one is 25+ years later.)

PADS: It's on older pads that do play currently. Adjustments and minor repairs required. They can last a while and this sax can fill a great role as a starter, pep/marching horn or back up sax.

CASE: original rounded Conn case in good working order.
