This is a great old 1949 vintage C.G. Conn 12M Bari Sax in original silver plate, serial number 334716. This bari is available for a great price, you just don't see original silver 12M horns come up very often.

 

This horn has been around the block, but has plenty to offer its new owner. It plays with a robust and powerful voice, great response down in the bell, and a beefy, punchy edge that cuts well. This is a great jazz horn but can stand its ground equally well in a rock or funk band. Physically, it shows the typical amount of wear you'd expect for a gigging horn. It has a handful of resolders and a smattering of dings and dimples, including some minor pings in the neck, but all are just cosmetic. A second neck strap ring was added in a more comfortable location. The horn sings and nothing is holding it back! The original silver plate is in outstanding shape with only nominal wear, just check out the photos.

 

This sax is currently playing well on a mix of newer and aging pads, all fitted with brown plastic resonators. To keep the price down, we are selling it “as is” and not doing any work to it, but if you just want a road-ready horn, this bari will not disappoint. Ships in a protec-style lightweight case.
