This is a vintage student level Conn 16M tenor sax, serial number N216725. This tenor needs a full repad and some dent work, but if you want to take on a project, or are learning about sax repair and want to get your hands dirty, this is can be a good pick up.

 

This tenor is in original lacquer, which is actually in very good condition front and back with only minor surface lacquer wear here and there. The body does have a smattering of dents and dings, in the tube and bottom bow, and the original neck has been beat up a bit, as seen in the photos. The bottom post of the low C# rod has popped off, but it is in the case, just needs to be resoldered.

 

We've been sitting on this horn for a couple years, hoping we'd get around to restoring it properly, but the repair shop is just always backed up and it won't happen anytime soon. We've made the decision to offer this horn up as-is, but if you'd like us to do the restoration, simply select that from the option above. Our restoration would include full disassembly and cleaning, dent work to get all the little dings out, checking tone holes, realigning posts, and all new pads/corks throughout. We'd get it back in perfect playing shape. Please allow 8 weeks if you select to have us do the work.

 

Should be a good horn once restored correctly. It's a solid beginner level instrument, or can be a good marching band or second horn on a budget. Ships in a hard case.
