From the 1941 C. G Conn's Musical Truth
When you buy a Conn you can be sure of getting all the exclusive IMPORTANT improvements and features which help make your playing easier. They include: Hydraulic Expansion process; drawn - rolled tone hole sockets, that will not leak or cut the pads; adjustable pivot screws, that give light positive action and will not vibrate out of adjustment; Res-O-Pads, that increase resonance and add brilliances to your tone; hard Duro-cast keys; new design octave socket, that helps prevent "buzzy A" and gives quick response and brilliance to upper register; raised high E key. On the alto and tenor the G# trill and new table keys. On the alto only, a tuning device and bottom mouthpipe key.
When you buy a Conn, you are buying into a rich and storied history of excellent instruments. Since the 30's, the 6M alto has been at the forefront of major players throughout the history of saxophone music. With a thought towards the future, the master crafts-persons at Conn used to the newest technology and R&D to perfect production and make every horn consistent. After all these generations, these saxophones still stand at the upper tiers of Mt. Olympus of saxophones. With a fairly recent overhaul and featuring beautiful well maintained pads, flat metal resonators, Series VIII style octave mechanism and overall beautifully aged lacquer, this Conn feels and sounds beautiful. With lightning fast and light action, you can burn down the bandstand or cool it off. Sometimes we all have to blow hot and cold!
