About This Listing

C G Conn USA
Tenor Saxophone
Model 16M

Serial Number 539XXX Made c.1955
Just Overhauled

Mechanically Excellent
Plays Beautifully!

Offered is a vintage C G Conn model 16M tenor saxophone made in Elkhart, Indiana during the heyday of band instrument manufacture in the USA. Made of vintage pure brass with about 80% of the lacquer worn off. Serial number 539XXX places the date of manufacture c.1955. The model 16M was originally marketed as a student instrument. Because of its superior metal and top notch workmanship, these horns are widely sought out by today's professionals. Mechanically the horn is in good condition, with only some indentations from previous dent removal. There are also some tool marks. Evidence that the neck was straightened at an earlier time. Tuning is A=440. We just overhauled this lovely tenor sax with treated kidskin pads and will include a full six month Warranty for service here at the store. A replacement case and all accessories are included.
Here's what Conn said in 1959:

“Professional in everything but price, this tenor designed for the student has many of the top improvements of the higher priced saxophones. Hydraulic expanded tone chamber and tapered bell bow adds to the full tone of this model. Features:

    • drawn tone holes, tempered nickel plate on all keys, adjustable pivots,
    • Automatic high F, LUSTRE-CONN finish.’

This beautiful tenor saxophone has everything you would want in tenor tone. Rich, vibrant, colorful and robust. Plays effortlessly in every register.
Come try this wonderful saxophone for yourself. We're here in the store 6 days a week from 11AM to 8PM and often earlier and later by appointment.
Shipping anywhere. New York residents subject to sales tax.

Thanks for looking and hope to hear from you!
