Took delivery of my 1948 Conn 10M on Friday from the US. On eBay it was described as needing a full repad, and a crease in the bell area, and a horn that had been lying around the workshop for a couple of years, that the techs didn't have the time to work on. The positive... Most of the pads seem in reasonable condition. The Negative .... The octave mechanism is bent, and the neck collar is detached, probably happened in transit. Anyway I have cleaned up the overall condition, leaving the original lacquer, about 20% it looks like its been through the mill, but with bags of character. Will post some pics later if anybody is interested. And will be looking for a tech to fix, solder and set it up.

I had a similar experience when I bought mine, the seller didn't bother putting a plug in the socket and the octave mech got bent, but in fairness the seller did re-imburse me what it cost to put right..

Yeah, but im in a hurry, so i will just bear the repair costs, but now you mention it i might just send him a few pics, so he will know in the future, with somebody else.
