Connsidering a Conn (ahahah what a great pun)

Hey people, I was connsidering the purchase of a Conn alto, though I'm not sure what model to get. I've heard great things about the Naked Lady and Chu Berry Series, and also the M series. Any advice would be MUCH appreciated. Thanx Sean

    Here's my Conntribution: main piece of advice- get one. I've got a tranny (almost 6M) that just knocks me out every time I play it. Conn really knew how to build a horn! Advice on which one- only you can say for sure which model suits your style, so try some out. Also, get the best piece you can as regards condition and set-up. Good luck!

      Thanks for the advice, but I haven't seen any old Conns for sale that I could try out, probably because I live in Australia (Australian Sax players happen to be Yamaha fanatics, not me)

        Try a conn 6m viii. They are usually great horns.
