Re: Old Conn Identifying Problems
I honestly don't plan to sell it and as soon as I get my digital camera working I will take pictures to show the condition as best as internet pictures can. I was just worried that if I tried to get it repadded the repair guy would be like..No serial #...no service.
I should mention even with fairly worn pads that it still produces a fairly nice tone and despite a sticky key or two it has pretty fast action. But, I stress I am looking to use this instrument to teach my kid but, I didn't want to accidental give her something..er..rare..overly valuable...I think I am just gonna contact my parents and get my Yamaha student sax I used back in high school in the 80's/90's which.. probably will also need re padding but, I know how to work on that one myself.
Also digging through memories the lady was like in her 60's and she said her husband used the sax for as long as she could remember till he had died 10 or so years ago and it sat in the garage.
