HELP, I Want One!

This is a drop-dead gorgeous original lacquer CG Conn 30M “Connqueror” series tenor sax, serial number 304092. This tenor has just been restored in our shop by tech Josh Creekmore, and is a premium top tier horn for players and collectors alike.

 

The original lacquer on this tenor is in the 97-98% range and looks stunning. As you can see in the photos, there's just a couple noticeable lacquer wear spots, most notably on the inside curve of the bottom bow, where we had to do some minor dent work and the old lacquer didn't hold up. The only other previous repair is found on the lyre holder at the top of the body tube, which was resoldered. The heat from the work crisped the lacquer just a bit right in that spot. The rest of the lacquer on the sax is as nice as you'll find, and honestly in the top 1% of Conn 30M's we've ever seen. Even the original neck is just about flawless.

 

This tenor was just overhauled using firm leather pads and premium TM Custom oversized machined brass resonators. The resos are screwback, so you can reuse them in future repads for the life of the sax. Josh optimized the action with a medium-light spring action and key heights a hair on the open side, just as you want from a vintage Conn. It feels like butter with a crisp, effortless action.

 

The Connqueror is arguably the best model Conn ever produced, It definitely has all the bells and whistles! Sterling silver key touches on all the side keys/touch points, improved table key mechanism, uniquely designed octave key on the neck, rolled tone holes (all still in pristine shape); this tenor has it all. It plays with a huge sound, lightning-fast response, and its tone stays warm and fat even as you climb into the altissimo. A premier top shelf tenor that won't disappoint. Ships in its original case, which is also in beautiful shape as pictured.
