This is a later vintage (1959) Conn 12M bari sax with the iconic Naked Lady engraving on the bell, serial number 819389. This is a quality vintage bari sax at an insanely low price. If you are looking for an inexpensive bari to kick around on, or if you are tired of missing out on those gigs because you don't own a bari, this is a great opportunity.

 

This horn has been around the block, no easy to way to say it. The sax was most likely a school horn at some point in its life, as it shows cosmetic and dent repair throughout its bell, body, and upper crook. The horn was relacquered once long ago, though the engraving still remains clearly visible on the bell. The neck previously had a crack, but it has been repaired properly and sealed in with solder. The saving grace on this horn is the pads are all in tremendous shape. It looks like it was repadded not too long ago, using quality firm leather pads and oversized, domed metal resonators.

 

Though this bari won't win any beauty contests, it plays well and does everything you need. Big bottom end and a good response, with a spread open feel. It plays big, that's for sure! We will often sell vintage Conn bari's for more than this price in “as is” condition needing a repad; this one has good pads and is ready to go. Ships in a newer Protec case.
