Silver Conn Tenor 50xxx with a nice repad
If you want a vintage Conn tone - big, spread, dark, warm etc, but you don't have a ton of cash to spend, this could be a good option. It's a silver plated 50xxx tenor with a very nicely-done overhaul by Marsh Woodwinds in Raleigh, NC. They do good work there, and the horn has a snappy feel under the fingers and needs nothing - the full overhaul was done a few years ago and then the horn wasn't played, so it's still basically a fresh overhaul and feels like one as well. Ships from NC. Price is $1000 in superb playing condition and including a hard case. I can throw in some other accessories if you need them. Shipping is fast and cheap in the USA and I'll give you a good deal (subsidized by me) on international shipping as well. Email me at email@example.com for more information and for lots of pictures.
