Vintage Original Gold Plate Conn Chu Berry Alto Sax, Serial #164878
Great Bargain Buy
The Chu Berry has been a quintessential part of the jazz sound over the years. Most notably during the early swing era. They produce a sweet and rich free blowing sonic character. The super quick speed at which they take in the air make them highly responsive instruments and a real blast to play. The Chu or New Wonder II model features a finger nail file G# key, trill G# and rolled tone holes. They also show case the classic Conn micro tuner neck.
This one in particular has most likely never been serviced and is to the point where it will need an overhaul before it is ready for playing. The body is in decent condition and is sporting all original gold plate. Physically the body is in nice shape as well as the bow, bell and original neck. There are a few dings around the bow but nothing to serious. The bell to body brace of the alto is currently un-soldered and would need to be reattached during an overhaul. The sax does come with the original neck. It has never been pulled down.
This sax has a ton of potential to be a great instrument and would truly look like a million bucks all shined up. If you are looking to get into a real classic at a low price you will not want to miss out on this Conn.
