DetailsAn iconic vintage tenor, this Conn 10M is undergoing an Uberhaul with full mechanical and cosmetic restoration. It required some extra dent work and key-work to get it back into shape, but now it is fundamentally sounder than factory fresh. We fabricated a new neck tenon and receiver for a perfect fit and added all of our favorite Conn tenor modifications. The Front F key was extended and re-oriented for easy operation, regardless if the player rolls up to the Front F or lifts their finger to press it. The Alternate F# key was converted from hinge tube to pivot screws. Key contacts were added under the G, Side C, and Side Bb keys for stability. Adjustment screws were added for the F# to Bb and F# to G# connections for simple and reliable set-up. A bumper was added to the Low C key and removed from the key guard to allow that key to open more. Adjustment screws were added to the top and bottom stack keys to simplify set-up and maintenance. The octave square was replaced with a round contact to eliminate noise and lost motion from the octave mechanism. This tenor received our signature satin silver finish with bright highlights and a gold wash bell. It will be fitted with new pearls, gold plated needle springs, and RooPads EXTREMES. All of our saxophones come with Pad Magic, Ultimax Key Oil, a MusicMedic.com Microfiber Cloth, a MusicMedic.com Swab, and plated horns come with Tarnishield Strips. No mouthpiece or case included. We do have some older cases, so if you are interested let us know and we'll see what we can find. We recommend purchasing a new sturdy case and can help you find the right one if you would like.
