Later Vintage Conn 12M Baritone Sax
 
This is a what you call a work horse special. Conn 12M baritone saxophone, serial number M15704. This baritone has clearly had a very full life and has seen its fair share of gigs and past repairs. Right now it is playing with an impressive big and rich sonic character. These saxophones pack quite a bit of punch. This is an ideal instrument for someone looking for a baritone to play at home or looking for something very affordable to get into. It features straight tone hole construction and key work with a front F key.
 
The body of the sax does have all of the original key guards and the neck. The X brace/ bell to body support brace is present and in good shape as well.  There is some history of past dent and solder repairs along the body, some dents still remain. Right now it is playing very nicely through some leaks down to low Bb. It has a mix match of pads right now and most of them are past their prime. Ultimately the saxophone  really would need to be overhauled before it would be in perfect playing condition or at least some very serious work. But right now it is still playing decently as it is so we have decided to offer it in as is condition at a very bargain bin worthy price point. Instrument does ship with a used protec case.
