  • Conn 10M Tenor Pre-War Recent Overhaul Exceptional Player 294921

    $ 5,450
  • Conn 10M Tenor Rolled Tone Holes Original Silver Plate Very Good Condition Fresh Overhaul! 310735

    $ 4,950

    This is a fantastic, freshly overhauled Conn 10M Tenor in original silver plate finish. It has a beautiful gold was bell as well. It has a little bit of ID engraving on it, which accounts for about a $1000 discount in the price that you get it for. The overhaul was done through GetASax with Pisoni italian leather pads and reusable slightly domed brass TenorMadness resonators, which are the best resonators around IMO for a Conn like this. It’s an effortless player and just feels wonderful to play. It’s a steal at this price, and outplays anything else you can buy in this price range, vintage or modern. Whoever gets it is one lucky player. Here’s Tyler playing a few notes on it just for fun.

  • Conn 26M VIII Connqueror Alto Original Lacquer Excellent! 292445

    $ 3,550

    This is a beautiful example of a rare Conn Connqueror 26M Alto saxophone with original lacquer and VIII stamp. The Connqueror is the most mechanically sophisticated saxophone that Conn ever made. It is a pre-war 6M body tube and neck, with all new keywork design, extra engraving, and solid silver on all the key touches that are not pearl. The ‘permadjust’ system is the big development on the Connqueror altos. You can read about that on Matt Stohrer’s website, or watch his repairman’s overview of the 26M on Youtube. This one has its bits and bobs intact, and is in very good condition. It just got overhauled before I bought it, so the pads are all new!  Cosmetically, this horn is just great, with only some minor lacquer wear. It has to be one of the nicest 26M Connqueror altos out there. Definitely the nicest one for sale currently, and priced very reasonably. I really like this one.

  • Conn 6M Alto Saxophone Gorgeous Original Lacquer 320627

    $ 1,750

    This Conn 6M Alto is in excellent original condition with original lacquer and original pads. It is almost as clean as it could possibly be. It will need a repad as soon as you get it, because it only makes saxophone noises now, but has pads from 1947 or so, which are ready to be replaced. No wear anywhere. No real damage, and no problems that I can see. If you want a great looking, super clean Conn 6M, that’s what this is. Original case also in good condition.

  • Conn 6M VIII Alto Saxophone PreWar 300088 Original Lacquer Excellent Condition

    $ 2,850

    BEAUTIFUL example of an original lacquer ‘Pre-war’ Conn 6M VIII Alto saxophone in extremely fine original condition with old pads. This horn had one dent removed from the body tube (nearly invisible now), and other than that, it’s about as clean an example as you are ever likely to find. These altos remain an absolute bargain. They’re among the best playing alto saxophones ever made, with a bigger, wider, more powerful tone than almost anything out there. And yet the keywork is very fast and comfortable, and the intonation is excellent. It’s the perfect lead alto horn. It’s also made in USA at the height of US manufacturing, and has a build quality that has hardly been matched since. This is the desirable version with the VIII stamped neck, which tends to sell for more than the later versions without the stamp. They’re all great, so if you’re on a budget, check out the beautiful 320k post war example that is also for sale.

  • Conn 8M C Melody Unbelievable Condition Fresh Overhaul Original Silver Naked Lady 274636

    $ 6,000

    This is a wonderful and extremely rare example of a very late serial Conn 8M C Melody saxophone with the ‘Artist’ / ‘Naked Lady’ engraving pattern on the bell. It’s gorgeous original silver plate finish with gold wash in the bell. It just got a full top-shelf overhaul with Italian leather Pisoni pads and nice sent of screw in reusable flat metal (brass) resonators. If you want a really good C melody for less money, look for a late New Wonder II Conn – around 200k serial if you can find one. This particular late serial version is ultra-rare — I’ve only seen 7 of them ever. This is the latest one I’ve ever sold. The cool thing about the later Conn C melody saxophones is that the tone opens up and gets really big and projecting like a tenor. If you use a GS RESO C Melody mouthpiece on this horn, you can get a tone that you just can’t get on any other type of saxophone. It’s in C but it’s fat and full and open like a tenor, but it concert pitch. Nothing else sounds like this. I had Tyler do a demo with one of my Conn C melodys and the GS RESO, so that you can get a basic idea of what it can sound like. Tyler had never played a C melody before, so I think he did pretty well for his first time!

    Conn Eagle Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece D73

    This is a Conn Eagle mouthpiece for Bari. It has a .073 tip opening, no baffle, curved side walls, and a large round chamber. For you philatelists out there, it looks like this piece was stamped with the logo twice. The shank is slightly discolored, but this piece is in excellent condition.

    Conn Early 6M Alto Saxophone 250425

    This is about the 150th Conn 6M made. (The first is #250243, and they made other voices in between that one and 250425.) If you know this site, you’ll know that I especially like these early 6Ms. They play wider and wilder than the also-great-later 6M’s, but they still have the super slick keywork that makes 6M’s great. So it’s kind of a sweet spot if you want great keywork and a big sound. This one needs an overhaul, and it has a few dings, but it’s going to be a superb alto with a little care put into it. Or talk to me about getting it including a fresh overhaul, which I can have done to my picky standards in a couple of weeks’ time.

    Conn Gold Art Deco Transitional NWII Tenor Rare and Fantastic! 243453

    $ 8,450

    Among the most desirable vintage saxophones of all, are the Conn gold plated transitional tenors with art deco style engraving. I have only seen a handful of these ever, and they all sold for high prices. They were all excellent players as well. This one has a huge voice like I always expect on a Conn of this serial. It has older pads and will need an overhaul soon. If you want that rarity factor with the original gold plate, that’s the reason to get this one. The lacquered or silver ones from the same period also play wonderfully, so you can definitely get the same kind of tone for less money. But if you want to be in the exclusive club of folks who own a gold art deco Conn transitional tenor, then this is your ticket.

  • Conn New Wonder II Sopranino Original Silver, Overhauled 153973

    $ 4,950

    This is a rare and beautiful example of a Conn New Wonder II SopraNINO Saxophone in original silver plate. It has a recent overhaul done at Saxquest, and it’s ready to play, right out of the case. They used black kangaroo leather pads and noyek/hollywood waffle style resonators. Black felts complete the look.

    The great thing about Conn sopranos and sopraninos is that they are warmer, darker, and rounder tonally than what you might think of as a typical sopranino or soprano tone. More like an alto and less like an oboe than modern instruments tend to sound, if that makes any sense. These horns tune well with the right mouthpiece. This one doesn’t come with an original Conn piece, but we can discuss options if you don’t have one already.

    It would be hard to find a Conn sopranino in better condition than this. It’s the nicest one I’ve had in years. They’re hard to find in any condition, but original silver and no evidence of past repairs like this is very special.

  • Conn New Wonder II Tenor Original Silver Plate Old Pads 207044

    $ 2,650
  • Conn New Wonder II Transitional Alto Saxophone Original Silver Old Pads 237954

    $ 950

    This late Conn New Wonder II alto sax is in very good original condition, and just needs a quality overhaul to be an excellent player. It’s original silver plate, and it will shine up and look amazing with a cleaning and polishing job put into it. These late New Wonder II’s start to be called transitional when they get their first 6M-anticipating feature: the raised side E key touch. Besides that, this is pretty much a New Wonder II, though Conn also starts to experiment with the neck around this serial, to improve intonation and give slightly more focus to the sound (still very wide and spread). When overhauled nicely, these altos are unmatched for the amount that they feel alive in your hands. They vibrate and respond so amazingly well. I never want to put the horn down!

    Conn NWII / 14M Bass Saxophone Original CASE Fully Restored

    I spent $500+ getting this rare original Conn bass sax case restored, and it’s in really great condition now! Fresh shell reinforcement and repair, internal padding and fabric, added latch, new handle, fresh coat of paint, and case feet. I am tempted to keep it for when I eventually find a nice later Conn bass. NOTE: This case ONLY fits the ‘plumber neck’ version NWII/14M, NOT the NW1 and earlier Conn bass with a neck that looks like a bari sax.

  • Conn NWII Soprano Burnished Gold w/ Train Portrait Plays Great! 184812

    $ 4,000

    You never see burnished Conn sopranos with portrait. This one has a train, which I find extremely delightful. This was also recently overhauled and plays well on the current, newish pads. No significant damage. Original gold plate. Conn case is from the right vintage but not original, I think, because the gold ones always had green velvet instead of purple. I’ve only seen one other portrait soprano like this, and it had an owl on it and sold in 1 day.

    York made by Conn Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece D83

    $ 50
