Saxophone repairman Matt Stohrer of http://www.Stohrermusic.com gives an introduction to an ongoing project: the overhaul of a rare Conn F-Mezzo Soprano saxophone. These saxophones were only produced in small numbers for a few years leading up to the Great Depression, and not examples in such excellent condition exist anymore. Originally meant to be part 1 of a series where I showed the overhaul, but forgot about it.
Note: The alto saxophone shown for comparison in the video is also a Conn from a few years later.
