This is a premium quality, very early vintage Conn 10M tenor sax, serial number 263075. This tenor was in fact made before Conn started stamping them “10M”, but it is a true Naked Lady 10M through and through, with all of the improved keywork/mechanisms updated from the transitional models.


This tenor dates to 1934, the very first year that you see “official” 10M and 6M models. Despite all the years between then and now, it remains in outstanding shape. It has never been relacquered/refinished, and the original lacquer is in the 85-90% range. It shows specklish wear scattered throughout, but no major wear to speak of. There's a smattering of tiny chair dings in the bottom bow, but we'll remove those before shipping (more on that in a bit), and no other signs of past damage or repair. The bell flare has never been bent, the bell-to-body brace is perfect, and the original neck has never been pulled down.


This 10M was repadded a couple years ago, using leather pads and metal Maestro style resonators. To really optimize the sax, we are going to do a fresh, full pro overhaul on it before shipping. We'll replace all pads and all key adjustment corks and felts, do the dent work in the bottom bow as described above, and adjust key heights and spring tensions throughout. We'll really make sure the sax is in perfect playing shape when you receive it.


If you are looking for a 10M, then you probably know the sound you are wanting, and this tenor delivers. Warm but not overly dark, spread but not blatty, and very big, full sound. It takes every ounce of air you can push through it and you never feel held back by the horn. Great tenor for pro players wanting the best Conn offered. Ships in its original wood case, which has seen better days, but is still getting the job done.
