Conn 6M altos are fantastic, sweet toned horns, with the iconic naked lady engraving. We bought this particular sax because it's got the teetering thumb rest but no other features of a Transitional (Tranny) Conn. maybe the latest Tranny.
We thought it would look awesome with a complete cosmetic restoration and play kill'in with an Uberhaul. It's playing great right now a very solid and precise Conn with excellent tone.
We fabricated a new double socket receiver to ensure a perfect fit and seal. Key contacts were added for the G, side C, and side Bb keys for extra stability. It received our signature satin silver finish with bright highlights and a gold wash bell. This alto features all new gold plated needle springs, new pearls, and black Saxgourmet RooPads with flat metal resonators.
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.
