Re: How long is your New Wonder, Big Boy?
A notable internet sax retailer tells me that his 192k Conn New Wonder Series II soprano measures 25 5/8”. This would seem to confirm that Conn made a significant design change at the end of the decade, and that my sax is one of the later (improved?) design.
He also claims that vintage sopranos perform well only with large-chambered mouthpieces. This would include vintage pieces refaced to a playable opening, or large-chambered modern pieces of which there apparently very few. He especially recommends the Morgan Classical.
Anybody else own one of these 26 ¼” Conns? What is your opinion of it? What mouthpiece works well with it? Anybody used the Morgan Classical with any vintage soprano?
