Conn NWII/14M BASS Sax desirable ‘plumber neck’ SUPER CLEAN original nickel plate AMAZING 154026 High Eb$ 12,500
This is one beautiful Conn bass saxophone. It has its original nickel plate finish. Nickel is great because it lasts forever. Like literally forever, and it doesn’t tarnish either. Just stays looking great no matter what you throw at it. Plus, Conn aficionados tell me they find nickel to be loud and resonant compared to lacquer. Maybe that’s just because that’s how Conns always play, or maybe not having lacquer on there does free up a bit of extra vibration.
This horn is in very very good condition. You almost never see a vintage Bass that has survived with this few past repairs (almost none) and this little dent work (again almost none). This horn was sold in the past by Bruno Waltersbacher, in Germany, and the nice case that comes with the horn has the Waltersbacher case logo on it. I’m guessing it was he who added the reinforced key arm on low C, which gives you more of a flat pad cup on that note, and is definitely an improvement.
As you can see, this horn has the plumber neck, which is the last version of bass sax neck that Conn made. Same neck that is on the later baritones. Compared to my personal 229k Conn bass, and the other later Conn basses that I have seen, the only real difference here is that this horn is keyed to high Eb. If you have to have that high note, well, switch to baritone, haha. This bass has good pads, not a fresh overhaul, but it plays quite well on the current overhaul. I’m including a thorough tune up pre-sale. Shipping a bass takes some special practices, but I have done it enough times to be able to do it with confidence. It’s not so expensive to ship either, though pickup is ideal if you can swing it.
