This Conn 10M is a wonderful player, wide, loud, flexible, nimble and complex sound. The finish is original, and in good condition, flaking in some spots but all honest wear. The pads are not new but they are functioning, could use updating when the right time comes along. Serial #277xxx, has original case. There are some dings and minor blemishes present but nothing serious, and all could be smoothed out pretty easily. This is every bit as good as these are said to be, and this is a very good model period.
