This solid Conn 6M Alto has all the bells and whistles of the great Naked Lady series without the hard-to-maintain Micro Tuner Neck. When we got this horn it had about %10 of the lacquer remaining so we removed that and left this as a bare brass finish. The engraving has been kept original, and all the other signature features of this instrument have been kept! 

This solid Conn 6M Alto has all the bells and whistles of the great Naked Lady series without the hard-to-maintain Micro Tuner Neck! When we got this horn it had about %10 of the lacquer remaining so we removed that and left this as a bare brass finish. The engraving is original, and many of the signature features of this instrument have been kept including the Nickel Silver strap ring! We replaced the pivot screws with stainless steel as well as the set screws with more reliable allen key hex screws for easy maintenece and adjustment. 

This unique saxophone has received an Uberhaul with modifications that include Side Key contacts added under the G, side C, and side Bb keys. The F#/Bb adjustment arm was changed to a Selmer Style adjustment arm with adjustment screws for easy regulation. 
 
Adjustment screws were also added to the backbars for both the upper and lower stacks for setting the regulation of B/A to C# key, or F/E to the F# key (your tech will be VERY happy about this). We removed the "Butterfly"style bumper holders on the wire key guards and replaced them with bumper felt sockets on the Low Bb, B, and low C key cups to quiet the keys and to keep the felts from falling out!
 
It’s set up with synthetic materials, all new pearls including convex pearls in the Bis Bb and Front F, and  and G# trill for better ergonomics and smoother feel. The original pearl rollers are in good shape with smooth action. The springs were replaced with nickel plated blue steel springs for a snappy feel and NO RUST! Black RooPads have been installed with plastic resonators. 
 
The most remarkable thing about this horn is the way it sounds.  It sings with a sweet tone and that big bass-y Conn sound.  It plays fluidly and is perhaps one of the finest Conn Altos we’ve ever had come through the shop!  
 

All of our saxophones come with Pad Magic, Ultimax Key Oil, a MusicMedic.com Microfiber Cloth, a MusicMedic.com Swab, and plated horns come with Tarnishield Strips. No mouthpiece or case included.

All of our vintage saxophones undergo an Uberhaul, which you can learn more about here . The workmanship on all Uberhauls is guaranteed . All Uberhauled saxophones are eligible for a C.O.A. (Clean Oil and Adjust), which is our yearly service plan that restores instruments to a freshly Uberhauled state, and is also a great time to make further personal adjustments or modifications. Shipping in the lower 48 states is free, but international shipping is also available. We have worked with the postal service to develop the safest possible shipping method so your new saxophone will arrive in excellent condition. Customers are also welcome to come to the Sax ProShop in Wilmington, NC to pick up your new saxophone: take this opportunity to play test your new horn and work briefly with a specialized technician to make some final minor adjustments.
