MINT Conn 26M Connqueror deluxe & improved 6M VIII Naked Lady pro alto saxophone
The rarest of the rare, the best of the best.. Conn 26M Connqueror aka… Artist model, Naked Lady, lady face, etc. The Conn 26M has always been regarded as one of the very best saxophones ever made. The Conn 6M (aka standard) saxophone is clearly known to be one of the favorite alto saxophones of all time. In fact, some players prefer the Conn 6M to any other saxophone to date.. Conn (Charles Gerard Conn & Company) took the deluxe and very rare 26M “Connqueror” series several steps further than the base 6M model… With much improved ergonomics (check out the placement of the left hand pinky table relative to the upper stack keys), larger/oversized pinky table, improved & faster mechanism, silver-inlaid key touches on every key that doesn’t have a pearl (and the right thumb hook), individual adjustments for each key to allow for set & forget long-term adjustment via the Conn perm-adjust system. Want a better Conn 6M VIII? This 26M is it! Original Conn key pearls and rollers. Amazing near-mint condition for its nearly 85 years of age, and the unmistakable Conn pinky table keys are in good alignment. It has some very very minor lacquer pitting and minor dings/scratches – common for this vintage. One key guard foot was resoldered on the back of the bow. Even though the finish may not be original (I only say this because it appears to have a slight orange-peel texture to me – perhaps I’m wrong however) it may be the factory finish or factory refinish – regardless the engraving is sharp & absolutely perfect, and this 26M saxophone is surprisingly complete and unmodified. It has the original Conn 26M micro-tuner double socket neck; no sign of any pull down; some very minor dings (see photos); the 6M/26M sax have a completely unique & sleek neck design with the very different under-slung octave lever. This neck is stamped: “STD’D M” meaning it is a limited-edition special neck (similar to the “VIII” neck). Rolled tone holes (RTH) – a unique feature and they are much easier on the key pads. The pads have Conn appropriate metal resonators. Metal resonated leather pads – I believe these are Conn reso-pads… The right stuff for this iconic sax. All keys operate, move freely, and quickly – just as they should on a Connqueror. With a play test – it is in need of an adjustment – however you can tell that this 26M Connqueror alto has some serious power and wants to unleash it! Even for a Conn 26M Connqueror this one has some rare features.. The STD’D M stamped neck. It has the very desirable pivoting right hand thumb rest! It is engraved with the word CONNQUEROR prominently on the bell! I believe all of these features were only available the first year or so of the 26M. Yet I’ve seen several that don’t have all three of these features – so… This is rarer and an extra desirable combination. This legendary professional saxophone is a rare find – particularly in this pristine condition. First come, first served… Don’t miss this super rare, near-mint Conn 26M CONNqueror Naked Lady. Vintage saxophones this special don’t come along every day, make an offer.. Includes the factory original Connqueror-only tweed case in fair-good condition. It will be packed well.

MINT Monette Raja XLT+ Bb Trumpet
Made in mid 2017, this is one of, if not the newest used Monette horn one might come across. As you can see in the photos, the horn is absolutely flawless. The valves have been oiled before and after playing anytime Ive used it with oil the shop recommends. The tuning slide, first, second and third valve slide have been greased twice a week for the life of the horn so far, again with only the grease the shop recommended, and the horn has also been given a thorough cleaning every month. Those of you familiar with new Monette trumpets, they are not to be put on trumpet stands and only should be put in the custom made leather case, this horn has been very well taken care of and is in perfect condition. The horn was at the Monette shop less than 2 months ago to get a brand new B4S3 Raja mouthpiece, and was played and adjusted by Dave Monette. The difference between the normal horns and the ones with the Raja integral threaded mouthpiece is hard to describe without playing it yourself. But if you could imagine the most instant and effortless changing of notes, with increased response and cleaner attacks, that would be the best way to describe it. It just makes it easier to make music without having to worry about other things. Keep in mind this mouthpiece is threaded and can be changed! It is NOT built permanently into the horn! The XLT+ models are a brand new state of the art design from Dave Monette, lighter than the LT horns, the same weight as the original XLT horns, but with newly designed parts to give it a thicker and more broad sound. And can be extremely Smokey for small group jazz. Dont be mistaken, there are recordings of some of the new XLT+ horns on the Monette Facebook page, and when these horns are played in the upper register and pushed, the sound can lead any big band with ease! I will also include a video of THIS EXACT HORN being played at the shop at the bottom of this description! Principal Trumpet of the MN Orchestra, Manny Laureano, received a horn almost identical to this one only weeks before this was completed. This is serial number #2712, making it one of the newest Monette horns out there. Included will be the Monette Raja XLT+ Trumpet along with the threaded B4S3 Mouthpiece specifically adjusted for this horn. Also, a matching regular trumpet shank, Prana B4S3 STC1 mouthpiece will be included to use on any non monette trumpet. Along with a Monette double mouthpiece case to store them both. A custom made Monette leather case for this horn will also be included to keep the horn properly protected. ORIGINAL documents on how to maintain, care for, and body use tips will also be included in the care kit with all the cleaning supplies sent with the horn. The horn has only had Hetman brand lubricants used on it and the correct ones will be supplied as well. Please note this Trumpet is not gold plated and does not have finger button inlays. Meaning what youre paying for is strictly the performance of a great playing horn. Although this horn is beautiful already, adding those things dont affect the playing characteristics of the horn. Meaning gold plating and finger button inlays, while still very cool, do not add any musical advantage. Very rarely will you find a used Monette that is a Raja. (threaded integral mouthpiece) its desirable because it actually does improve playing characteristics, and is not simply aesthetic. The price will be fair, but will reflect how new the horn is and how special this particular model is. As you can see in one of the pictures I even kept a little lock on the zippers of the case to keep unwanted guests out! Because trust me, any gig you go to, any trumpet player will want to take a look. This just goes to show that it was well loved and treated with great care. Its come to my attention that Im having to let it go to financially continue my music education. Just part of life. This will soon get posted to many sites so many eyes will get a look. If youve read all this and are interested, please private message me for offers and absolutely any questions about the horn, or the Monette gear in general. Here is a playing sample of this horn! I could not copy the Link to bring you straight to the video for copy write issues, but if you have or use Facebook, go to the Monette page, and simply type in, XLT Plus its the very first video! My name is Kyle and they mention that at the beginning of the video. Thank you for checking out this post! The item “MINT Monette Raja XLT+ Bb Trumpet” is in sale since Wednesday, March 28, 2018.
