Exquisite original gold plated CG Conn New Wonder series soprano sax, serial number 141442. This is the real deal: a quality vintage Conn in great shape, at a low price, ready for a new home. This is a very late series New Wonder, not quite in the “Chu Berry” era, but awfully close, and with the same engraving pattern as seen on those horns.

 

The original factory gold plating on this beauty is 99% intact, with light wear in only a couple spots where you can see the silver underneath peaking through. There's a couple tiny dings in the upper area of the tube, but no serious dents or previous repairs, including no trauma to the body and no resolders. All of the rolled tone holes are perfect. It was last padded using original style white leather pads, to mimic an original look for this horn, but the pads are starting to get up there in years, and the sax could stand to be redone to really play at the top of its ability. We are currently offering the sax as-is at a low price, but also offering to do the work if you like. The repad would include all new pads and material, with your choice of resonator. Please allow 8 weeks if you opt to have us do the work.

 

Currently playing through some leaks on the old pads, you can still get a sense of the lushness and color this soprano exhibits. With new pads, I expect nothing less than a free blowing, warm player, which is what these old Conns excel at. Ships in a hard case.
