I'd also be open to a trial period. I am not a dealer, but I can provide references.
This is a great sounding horn and doesn't feel at all like any other modern alto I've played, and for me that...
I can send pictures, PM or email me, thanks.
For sale is a MACSAX Empyreal alto in treated bare brass finish. Excellent condition, absolutely dent/damage free, and in outstanding adjustment. Plays easily from low Bb on up. This has the Ken...
So inspiring and effortless and profound. Just makes me want to play.
Mox Nix on Art Farmer's Modern Art album is a fun little minor blues.
I totally agree with this.
Off the market. This horn just plays too well -- I'm going on a mouthpiece search to try and dial things in.
I've owned and played several NW I and II Conns with functioning micro tuners. I've always done the same as mentioned above -- tuner all the way in, mouthpiece fully on, then roll back the tuner...
I am also open to trade+cash for an alto of lesser value.
I played this horn last night with a 6pc R&B horn section. Absolutely effortless player and spot on intonation.

I personally find the Conn New Wonder I and II keywork more comfortable. And I think the NWI would make a fine classical horn, but the TT would probably be my first choice for 'legit.'
Up for sale is a fantastic playing 9930 alto (with sterling silver neck and body). I bought this horn new in 2007, and it has very, very low mileage on it. There is absolutely no damage, pads are...
I know this is a soprano thread, but this is an absolutely spot-on description of my 9930 alto. Love it!
Agreed, the 52 is an excellent horn and that is an insanely cheap price. I was in the market a couple of years ago and came across one for sale locally for $500. It played very very well, but...
I play about 25 gigs per year, mostly paid (but typically very little $$). I'm a regular player in one big band, sub in a couple of others, and play in a sextet doing a mix of original instrumentals...
