98M Low A Baritone Saxophone

Vintage Conn 98M Low A Baritone Saxophone

Excellent condition. Recently overhauled and customized by Mike Manning in NYC. The lacquer was intentionally removed for tonal reasons. All custom copper resonators measured to fit each tone hole exactly. All solid copper finger buttons and rollers. Not only does the copper look great it feels great too; very smooth and comfortable. Custom made white ROO pads. Pads and corks in great shape. This horn needs NOTHING! It roars right now... In fact, I sold 2 other Mark VI baritones that didn't play as good as this Conn. The scale is very even throughout every register and into the altissimo. Very centered tone, but not too dark... Serial # is 91,xxx.

My reason for selling is that I recently acquired a beautiful Low A Super Balanced that will become my main horn.

This horn has been played by me on numerous tours and recordings including the Diana Ross Tour from 2010 to present day. Most recently it can be heard on the forthcoming Joan Osborne CD.

* more photos and audio of this horn in action can be found at :

No mouthpiece, just horn and case. I will also include the clamps that I've used on it. It will come in a brand new Protec contoured case that it will also be shipped in. 

If you're looking for a great low a baritone for less than a Mark VI and less than a new baritone, which will not sound like this I guarantee you, then this horn is for you... It is a Conn baritone after all.

It will be carefully packed! I'm a player so I know the deal, believe me. It will also be insured. I will set an estimated shipping price and adjust as needed for location and insurance. Because of it's weight I'll estimate the shipping cost at $150 for now. Adjustments will be made once winning bidder has provided their confirmed PayPal shipping address.

Payment must be made immediately at auctions end. If payment is not received, the horn will be offered to the next highest bidder. 

Any questions please ask...

US bidders only. PayPal only. UPS ground shipping with insurance to confirmed PayPal addresses only.
