General description : This is the famous Conn 6M VIII 'Ladyface' alto sax. In remarkably good condition, with a typical vintage look. Original lacquer, with the usual lacquer wear on body and keywork. It's a terrific horn to play, very free blowing! Lots of power, fast ergonomic keywork and a full sound, as can be expected from these horns. The VIII model is the best of the best and can withstand all tests with any saxophone. Furthermore, this is a WWII-horn, build in December 1942. Only a couple of saxes were built during the war, as Conn was producing military equipment then...... Highly sought after and still played by professional players these days.....
