This C.G. Conn Alto Saxophone with Rolled Tone Holes 1930’s Serial #M250492 is in excellent condition with 75-80% of the original lacquer, and medium speckle wear across the body. It has just come back from the shop where it was cleaned, adjusted, and re padded. There is evidence that a few dents were taken out of the bow, but currently, there are no dents or dings in the horn. The serial number is “M250492” making this a vintage 1932-1933 saxophone. This horn was made in the transition years between the “New Wonder” and the “M Series Naked Lady.” You’ll notice that the serial number has an “M” in front of it but no naked lady engraving! Furthermore, below the serial number is the engraved letter “L.” This denotes that the horn is in low pitch. Until 1940, Conn made horns both high, and low pitched horns. A few other features of this horn include an adjustable thumb rest and a tunable neck! The engraving on the bell reads “C.G. Conn Ltd Elkhart, Ind.” however it’s quite difficult to make out. The original neck is in great shape with no evidence of a pull down. It comes in a replacement case in good condition. A mouthpiece is not included. This alto saxophone has that classic Conn sound warm and clean. It plays nicely up and down the register and has great intonation.
