The '23 Conn needs a full rebuild and wasn't treated very well before I got it and Selmer New York is getting rebuilt right now. I am not sure why I picked a 90+ year old bari for my 1st attempt at a rebuild, but it certainly is a learning experience!
The Barone is my main bari though with the '24 Conn 2nd (I love the Conn sound, but the Barone is so much easier to play, especially for big band work).
Hey, David: if you'd like, take some big pics. I'll include this in my next calendar. Details in my sig line.My most interesting sax is probably a silver plated Selmer Modele 22 C melody. I have only seen pictures of a few of those, never another in person.
Would really like to hear your thoughts about it if you don't mind.Will be getting a Rampone and Cazzani R1Jazz bari in the upcoming weeks.
It was spoken for the same day as posted.There was a 991 listed for $2500 on Sotw the other day, was surprised he didn't snag that one.
