What Conn said in 1931:
The new Conn bass is creating a lot of favorable comment through improvements in scale, fingering and ease of response. Its deep, pipe organ-like voice adds a rich coloring to orchestras, bands and smaller groups and furnishes an excellent foundation for any ensemble. The Conn bass saxophone is not difficult to play despite its size and the broad, rich tone it produces. The keys and pads are necessarily large, the rods are long; but so carefully have Conn engineers designed these parts for perfect balance and smooth action that a minimum of effort is required to actuate the mechanism.
