    Proud new owner of a 1928 New Wonder II Curved Soprano. The seller claimed it is all original lacquer but I am convinced it's a relac, sadly.

    You sure have a fantastic line up there, sir. Which horn is your favorite?
    I have been considering the Siebold Heritage too. There is very little about it on the web though.
    How do you like it on the Conns? Also compared to the STM? Do you happen to have sound samples of the Heritage?

    Conn 12M from 1936
    i don't remember the brand of the pads, but they are high quality ones with metal resonators.
    it has a custom front F key (originally came without), made by a great saxophone technician from Italy, Roberto Balassone.
    I use an Ed Pillinger mouthpiece; model R 9*, with vandoren zz 3 or 3½.

    Time to join up.

    Silver New Wonder Transitional baritone 251XXX, early '30s.

    Erik Greiffenagen/Yanagisawa double chamber 0.115, which is the only mouthpiece I have (or need) that works on this horn. I should probably send Erik my old Tone Edge so as to have a backup.

    Jazz Select 2H or Legere Sig #2 or 2.25

    This horn has the US Quarter Master Corps engraving, and a double socket neck.
