Conn 26M Connqueror

This is the famous Conn 26M 'Connqueror' alto sax. In remarkably good condition. Definitely an older relacquer, but well done. These are very free blowing horns! Lots of power, fast ergonomic keywork and an amazing sound. This one can be dated to mid-1935 and is one of the first 26M model horns. More or less a Transitional model, as it still has the ChuBerry-style two-ring microtuner (with patented number) and the Transitional swivel thumb hook. This one has a serial number thats only 5 numbers higher as my other Transitional 26M, see MRO ID40.Condition: Overhauled by previous owner in 2018. This horn is in very good condition, without damage. No dents, no repairs, only a couple of minor dings and light lacquer wear. The neck fits perfectly. Microtuner is fully functional and has no leaks. No neck pull down. Microtuner had the following text: Rev.D July 8-1919 No 1308903. Only minor laquer wear on body. The silver plated keywork touches are in good condition. The bell engraving is not very sharp due to the relacquer, but you can still see the Naked Lady..... The serial number area engraving is just fine. This sax was overhauled in 2017 by its previous owner and is in perfect playing condition.Warranty : as-is condition : no warranty.Level : professional.Body : Lacquer : relacquer.Condition : very good, with normal wear and tear.Visual : minor dings / scratches / lacquer wear.Repairs : none.Engraving : thin Ladyface engraving.Keywork : Lacquered / silver plated.Condition : very good, with normal wear and tear.Pads : very good.Neck : Lacquered.Condition : very good, with light wear and tear.
