borrowed one once to play an R&B gig on... seemed ok to me, though blowing the hell out of it with a Dukoff D9, well, pretty much any sax sounded the same!
serously- they're not a real classic Conn but they're decent enough horns....

I think the Weltklang is a better sax than a Conn Shouting Star.

I dont know it from experience but they have a reputation for rather difficult intonation.
