Hi everyone,i have a conn alto sax which i am unable to identify so would really appreciate any advice,the serial number is M141146,this has an A above and L below which is presumable low pitch?the sax has rolled tone holes and engraved to the bell is Mde by C G Conn Ltd,Elkhart Ind U.S.A.the engraving is like petals or similar to fleur de lys.it appears to be laquer or gold finish,it plays beautifully i have to say though i am going to have it serviced shortly just to make it tip top.
Thanks for reading.
That would be a Conn New Wonder from 1924-1925. The L does indicate low pitch. It could be either a Series I or Series II. (although a little early for a Series II) If it has the "nail file" G# key, that is typical of the series II.
Thankyou very much connsaman_jim,it does not have the "nail file" G# key,it appears to be smoothed,it does not have the tuner on the crook either.I can upload a picture or two if it helps.
again,thanks ever so much!
