Product ID: 339249Conn10MTenor
This is a 1950 vintage CG Conn 10M “Naked Lady” series tenor sax, serial number 339249. This tenor has been around the block but still has plenty of life in her, and can make a great back-up or bar gigging horn.
The only reason this tenor is in our “bargain bin” is because it does not have our pro set up on it, but rest assured it is ready to play. It has a set of newer pads with brown plastic resonators, and is sealing pretty well. The sax does show a smattering of tiny dings in the bottom bow, as seen in the photos, but nothing too bad. A second neck strap ring was also added further down the body tube for better comfort, and there are a couple resolders here and there from its life on the road.
This sax is a tremendous player, and at this price, you don't have to be afraid someone will breathe on it wrong at a gig. It plays with a fast response and the spread, open feel you can only get on a vintage Conn. Real nice projection in all registers. Stay tuned for a video!
