Conn 12M Transitional Art Deco Engraved Original Silver Plate Baritone$ 8,000
Freshly overhauled Mulligan-era original silver plated Art-deco engraved Conn transitional 12M baritone in great shape. This horn just had a high end overhaul, and it feels like a new horn under the fingers. It has the rare art deco engraving, and it looks gorgeous. It has had several posts resoldered, as you can see, which was part of the overhaul, and done to make it really sturdy and ready for its next 80 years of playing. This horn is just effortless to play, and it sounds warm and full and extremely pleasant. Conns almost feel like a tenor to hold and play, weight wise, which makes them extra fun for the pro bari player. Plus nothing sounds like a Conn 12M. This is fully a 12M in terms of keywork and features, with same side bell keys, X brace and 12M stack and palm keys. These are super hard to find in good shape. I’ve been watching beat up 12M’s needing a $2k overhaul selling over $6k on eBay, so this rare art deco version from the best serial range and already overhauled is definitely a great deal. It will only go up in value. This is the baritone to have.

Conn 12M Transitional Baritone Saxophone 250510 Relacquer Plays Well!$ 4,350
Selmer Mark VI LOW A Baritone 63959 Original Lacquer and Pads$ 10,500
You’d be hard pressed to find a nicer, cleaner, more all-original 5-digit Selmer Mark VI baritone saxophone than this one! It’s gorgeous original lacquer, and it even still has its original factory pads! That’s insane. Plus it has the rare and desirable low A key that makes it an all-purpose modern instrument. If you want this horn plus a top shelf overhaul, send me a message. I’d love to get this overhauled for someone, but it’s also hard to find one with original pads from 1956, so I haven’t wanted to do it till I see if someone would rather have an untouched one. You can play it on the orig pads, and it plays beautifully with a rich, medium dark tone, kind of ‘woody’ with a nice focused core. But it’s leaky, and really needs an overhaul to play its best! Do that, and you will have a world class bari with the best looking lacquer of any Selmer in my opinion. I’m a sucker for that dark nitrocellulose lacquer look.
