Another 1942 Conn 10M Ladyface has been added to the collection. You can find it under TS55 in the ´Occasions´ section. Original lacquer, and without damage or dents. This tenor was overhauled in the 1990s by Emilio Lyons of Raybun Music: his personal sticker is present on the cup. The sax plays wonderfully on the older pads. Everything else is original, except the case. These are highly sought-after saxes: check quickly if it is still available!

Another special Conn alto saxophone has been added to the collection: a Conn ChuBerry from early 1926 in finish 1 (silver-plated body with gold-plated keys and bell engraving). See AS122 in the ´Occasion´ section. Not many Chuberry altos were made in this finish, and a near mint example like this one is an absolute rarity!  The gold plating is virtually complete! The sax plays great on the current polsters: some have been replaced. All locking screws are present. All rollers are original. The sax has only 1 small dent in the bow guard: otherwise no dents, damage or wear.

Another fantastic 6M VIII alto saxophone (MRO ID : AS121). Built early 1939, with serial number 2854xxxx. These pre-war saxes are in great demand and are among the best saxes Conn produced. This one also has the original lacquer, and is in very good condition. Very nice Ladyface engraving on the bell! No dents, damage or repairs! The pads are still fine: the sax was overhauled several years ago. The sax plays superbly and can compete with any MK6. The original neck has no pulldown and, of course, the VIII stamp. The microtuner functions smoothly with no play.

The Conn New Wonder Series II / ChuBerry was built between 1924 and 1929, and very well-known and sought-after among fans of the old Conn sound. These saxes sound warm and round, and are great for ballads and blues. Many jazz musicians still use this type of saxophone. They have a completely different sound to a Conn Ladyface.
In December 2023, I had 4 alto sax Conn ChuBerry on the workbench for maintenance and adjustment. These are available under MRO ID : AS116, AS117, AS118 and AS119.
