About This Listing

These horns are the absolute pinnacle of Conn's legendary saxophone craftsmanship: the Connqueror Series 26m alto saxophone. These altos are often likened to 6m altos on steroids, with incredible keywork to boot- If you've ever wanted to try the unbeatable vintage Conn sound but without the uncomfortable ergonomics, THIS is the horn for you.

Just got this horn back with a fresh overhaul and it really sings! No leaks, and it's very quiet.
Body has ALL perm-adjust feet, ALL set screwsALL original rollers are fully functioning, neck is fitted very well (as well as thoroughly cleaned during the overhaul), ALL of the rolled tone-holes are intact with NO visible signs of any file marks or dents. Microtuner is fully functioning and works great!

 304xxx serial, Viii stamp on body and neck, incredibly smooth action and truly unbeatable sound. Very smooth keywork; this thing is FAST! Another luxurious keywork feature of the 26m: thick sterling silver inlaid key touches anywhere there isn't mother of pearl. The left-hand thumbrest is non-original, but more comfortable. Probably a relacquer at some point, although the engraving shows little to no loss of detail (if it was relacquered, it was done extremely well). There is a bit of lacquer wear as shown in photos, as the vintage nitro-cellulose lacquer is delicate, but gorgeous.
Vintage case is not original Conn case, possibly an old King case in fair condition. Will Include if desired
