Super Super SUPER Clean original lacquer Conn 6M VIII alto from 1940. This is just about the most perfect pre-war Conn 6M that I have seen. It is completely original with original pads intact as well. If you want the best, then look no further. These altos are SO great with a good overhaul. I just got the 285k 6M VIII overhauled, and it is a fresh reminder just how great Conn saxophones of this period are. Put it next to anything, and it’s not even a fair fight. Even my beloved Super 20’s can’t match the raw power, and the vibration of a Conn. It projects while staying warm and dark, yet still cuts through like an ideal lead alto. Works with lots of mouthpieces, including Meyers, Otto Links, and even Selmer style pieces. If you want the best condition 6M possible, this is the one! It will probably be years before I see its equal!
