Conn CONNstellation 28M alto sax. Just back from a pro setup at Boston Sax Shop by Frank Korzyra. A very well cared for horn as you can see.
Pads are fresh with little use and lots of life and the horn is ready for serious use. An excellent horn designed with input from Santy Runyon (the maker of mouthpieces-o-plenty), but primarily by Hugh Loney, with reference to many Allen Loomis patents.It is possibly the most rare and sought after production Conn. It is also completely different from any other Conn available. Underslung octave key, but no microtuner neck. Players have commented that the horn plays like each key had been sprayed with WD-40. That's a good thing.
Almost completely different keywork than any other Conn. And the horn's signature: a large plastic keyguard (patented) on the LH side of the horn that covers the bell keys and low keyrods. This guard is decorated with gold filigree and the Conn three marching guys. There may be some exceptions so please contact me if you have a question.
