Re: Saxaphones with an underslung octave key?
What I think you had is not known as an Elkhart, but a Conn 6M. What engravings were on it? If there was something resembling a woman, it is one of the best altos ever made, and even if not, it was a very good horn. If you're putting "Conn 6M Elkhart" in the Ebay browser, you're not going to have much luck. Just remove the "Elkhart". Ebay is not a great place to buy horns, though. Check Sax on the Web, here (Saxquest) and Craigslist/Backpage first.
