General description : This is the famous Conn 26M 'Connqueror' alto sax. In remarkably good condition. Definitely an older relacquer, but well done.  These are very free blowing horns! Lots of power, fast ergonomic keywork and an amazing sound. This one can be dated to mid-1935 and is one of the first 26M model horns

Condition: Overhauled by previous owner in 2014. This horn is in very good condition, without damage. No dents, no repairs, only a couple of minor dings and light lacquer wear. The neck fits perfectly. Microtuner is fully functional and has no leaks. A dent was removed on the upper side: well done. No neck pulldown. The mouthpiece end has minor damage, no issue at all. Microtuner had the following text: Rev.D July 8-1919  No 1308903. Only minor laquer wear on body. The silver plated keywork touches are in good condition. The bell engraving is hardly visible due to the relacquer, but you can still see the Naked Lady.....  The serial number area engraving is just fine. This sax was overhauled in 2014 by its previous owner, using Maestro resonators. We did a full maintenance check in Jan. 2020: complete disassembly, cleaning and polishing body and keywork, renewed cork and added teflon where needed, new oil, assembly, test play and adjustment. The pads were treated with pad oil , the 2 palm key pads were renewed
