Here is a beautiful Transitional Conn Alto 251XXX 1932. It was made in Elkhart, Indiana in the peak quality pre -war period of the Conn Factory's production and imported to the Uk by LaFleur. This has rolled tone holes, the underslung octave mechanism, double neck socket, no micro tuner, 6M style table and low B and Bb keys on the left of the bell. To all intents and purposes it is very close to being a 6M without the 6M stamp or the Lady Face of the Artist series. It does have beautiful Art Deco engraving and deep honey gold lacquer.I'm not 100% sure about the lacquer. I think it may have been relacquered if so its an old job and has been done well. It certainly has no impact on the legendary Conn sound.
This horn has a beautiful big detailed nuanced tone. There is a very minor ding on the crook which does not affect playability and a solder repair on the neck tenon. A few minor marks etc and bits of lacquer wear but this looks and sounds great.
This instrument has been cleaned and set up and regulated and plays wonderfully. The item "Conn 6M Transitional Alto Sax 1932" is in sale since Wednesday, November 25, 2020. This item is in the category "Musical Instruments\Wind & Woodwind\Band & Orchestral\Saxophones".
