Ronnie's original Tenor a CONN 10M 301399 c. 1942. This is the Lady Face model with rolled tone holes.

We have written provenances from both Pete King & Martin Block attesting to this. Ronnie was a great fan of Lester Young who also played this model.

Ronnie played this instrument prior to and around 1953 we display a picture of the famous coalition Band of 1953 featuring all the greats of this era. This was a talented but short lived band.

The first purchaser was Arthur Sulman who bought it from Ronnie in a bar!


New Owner

We are proud to announce that we chose Alex Garnett to be the new owner, Alex remembers Ronnie well as a visitor to his fathers workshop. Alex now plays regularly at Ronnie Scott's Club. What a fitting conclusion to the story.
