This is a rare and desirable example of an original silver-plated vintage Conn New Wonder II Chu Berry tenor saxophone manufactured in 1927, #M198XXX. His sax is in well-worn used condition with plenty of wear and scratching from many years of playing, but everything works great, and it is set up to good playing adjustment on pads around midlife or a bit older, with necessary recent replacements. A Selmer-style thumbrest and additional neckstrap ring are added and the thumbrest and octave key are modified for easier action. There is an extension on the high D# key.
The work is solid and professional. This sax blows very easily and projects very strongly with a warm vintage edge.The item "1927 Conn New Wonder Chu Tenor Sax/Saxophone, Silver, Rolled, Plays Great" is in sale since Sunday, May 31, 2020.
