C.G. Conn was opened by Charles Gerard Conn in 1874, years after Adolphe Sax received the first patent on the saxophone. The first saxophones built in the United States were made in 1889 at the Conn manufacturing plant in Elkhart, Indiana. Conn’s early saxophones were called the Wonder, New Wonder, PanAmerican, American First, C. G. Conn and Victor New Wonder. In 1914 Conn saxophones featured drawn and rolled tone holes that were based on a patent by flute manufacturer William Haynes and generally regarded to be an improvement over soldered tone holes. Throughout the 1930’s Conn continued to innovate and release popular and well selling saxophones including the Connqueror series that were among the most well-respected of Conn saxophones. After the Second World War Conn concentrated its efforts on saxophones designed for band and orchestra students. Today Conn is part of the Conn-Selmer companies one of biggest producers of musical instruments in the United States.
