Comparing 2 bass saxophones

Two bass saxophones, one Martin from 1921 and a Conn 14M Ladyface with rolled toneholes and keyed till high F.
In fact, the Martin also came out of the Conn factory, since Martin never made basses themselves. It is a stencil.
You will be able to hear the Martin in a medium swinging Blues and Conn in the Preacher.
There are also some parts of old historical recordings featuring bass saxophones in this Video.
Hear Coleman Hawkins in his best performance on Bass sax, Hop Off, the obscure version where Fletcher Henderson's tuba player didn't show up and Hawkins improvises his bass lines through the ensemble.
Also two fine contributions by Adrian Rollini, the ultimate bass sax meastro.
Part of Jazz Band Ball, with Bix Beiderbecke can be heard and his own composition: Dixie, dedicated to his wife, who had that name!
Bert Brandsma tells stories, introduces the saxophones and playes them!
