Fantastic Price on a Vintage 30M With New Pads

This is a cool old vintage Conn 30M “Connqueror” series tenor sax, serial number 298797. This tenor has just been fully restored in our repair shop by Ben Reece, and ships now in a fresh set of pads and a finely tuned adjustment. It's a great deal on what many consider the best tenor Conn ever made.

 

This 30M was relacquered long ago, but overall done well. The detail in the engraving on the bell, including of the iconic “naked lady,” remains clearly visible with only light buffing. This “newer” lacquer shows excellent lacquer coverage with only mild wear. The sax shows no previous trauma to the body, bottom bow, or bell, and the original double socket neck does not appear to have ever been pulled down or damaged. The instrument is solid top to bottom. It does feature rolled tone holes and sterling silver key touches on all of the side keys.

 

As stated, this tenor was restored by Ben Reece, using premium firm leather pads and oversized, slightly domed seamless metal resonators. All key material has been replaced, and the horn has had spring tensions evened out and key heights adjusted. New rollers were also installed. It ships in perfect playing shape, ready to bring years of enjoyment. This is a fantastic tenor for players who love the classic vintage American sound, on a high end professional sax that will hold its own with anything made before or after.
