lee konitz saxophone model

Does anyone know which model of alto-saxophone and mouthpiece was played by Lee Konitz when he recorded with Lennie Tristano - These Foolish things etc around 1950's ?

    I studied with Lee and asked him about his horns. In those days he used a Selmer Balanced Action and also a Conn 6M. Later he used a Mark VI but would still use the Conn from time to time.

      I did forget to mention that he still often uses that old Balanced Action, probably more than the other horns. In fact, I recall that the last time I remember him using the Conn was for a recording called "Chicago and All That Jazz".
