A local player, Mr. Nordmann, recently got his Conn 10M back from a thorough rebuild after some custom pads and resonators. Originally, he thought that I would tell him the sax was not salvageable from the evident playing career that the sax had had (aka: it was worn, beat up, missing screws and parts, and needed 2x high temp silver brazing repairs...). But, alas, After the black kangaroo pad + silver oversized resonators, this sax filled the room. And here's Mr. Nordmann's first reply:

"Hey, the Conn plays so nice. I've been really enjoying it. I first tried a Berg from the 70's and didn't have much success.
I then put the Otto link tone edge on it that came with the horn and it plays great. In tune from top to bottom. Even though it's a smaller tip opening than I'm used to, it plays really nice. Not to loud but fills the room. Very warm sound.
Thanks so much. I'm so happy with the horn."
