Questions For Conn 10M Players
Hello. I currently play alto and am looking to buy a tenor saxophone. I'm very interested in trying out some Conn 10Ms, but I was hoping I could get a little info from people that own/have owned 10Ms. A few questions I have:
What, from your experiences, has been the best serial number range for 10Ms?
Do you think that it is better to go with one that has rolled tone holes? What are the advantages/disadvantages of rolled tone holes?
I currently play a 1948 King Super 20 alto. Will the keywork of a 10M be difficult to adjust to for somebody that has been playing an early Super 20?
I have heard that the keywork can be difficult for people that do not have large hands. Is this true, and if so is there a certain serial number range that would be better for people that do not have large hands?
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help. Any extra observations or advice you can add would also be greatly appreciated.
