The rarest of the rare, the best of the best... Artist model, Naked Lady, lady face, etc. The Conn 30M has always been regarded as one of the very best saxophones ever made. The Conn 10M (aka standard) saxophone is clearly known to be one of the favorite tenor saxophones of all time. In fact, some players prefer the Conn 10M to any other saxophone to date..Conn (Charles Gerard Conn & Company) took the deluxe and very rare 30M "Connqueror" series several steps further than the base 10M model... With much improved ergonomics (check out the placement of the LH pinky table relative to the upper stack keys), larger/oversized pinky table, improved & faster mechanism, silver-inlaid key touches on every key that doesn't have a pearl (and the right thumb hook), individual adjustments for each key to allow for set & forget long-term adjustment via the Conn perm-adjust system.
Good condition for its over 80 years of age. There are dings & scratches common for this vintage, and some soldering repair history, but nothing major. It is fitted with a modern ergonomic right thumb rest. It has the original Conn 30M neck; some dings (see photos); the 30M sax has a completely unique & sleek neck design with the special split over/under slung octave lever. Rolled tone holes (RTH) - a unique feature and they are much easier on the key pads.
The original Conn pearl rollers are surprisingly all present and intact, although a couple are a bit stiff. The leather pads are in fair condition and have Conn appropriate metal resonators. All keys operate, move freely, and quickly... Just as they should on a Connqueror. It could use a check up and possibly a cleaning of the patina if you like.The engraving is great - both clear & crisp. Plus, this is one of the rarer early horns that is actually engraved with the word CONNQUEROR prominently on the bell - that is a big plus! This legendary professional saxophone is a rare find. Don't miss this super rare Conn 30M CONNqueror Naked Lady.
With the original Conn 30M Connqueror neck included. Vintage saxophones this special don't come along every day, make an offer..Includes a non-original case that is in good condition. It will be packed well with care.
