This is a completely original, 1927 vintage C.G. Conn New Wonder “Chu Berry” model alto sax, serial number 199723. The original matte silver plate on this alto is in tremendous shape, but it does need some pad work to get in good playing condition.

 

The alto has obviously never been played very hard. The original plating is over 95% intact, and while the silver is tarnished, it shows only light finish wear on a few touch points. This sax can easily be cleaned up to shine like new. I see no resolders and no previous dent work or repairs, including on the original microtuner neck. The sax does feature rolled tone holes and a trill G# key.

 

This alto came to us on a mix of newer and older pads. With our repair shop backed up for months, we've decided to let this beauty go “as is” for a low price. It is our recommendation that it could use a repad, but you can probably get by on replacing the older pads and giving the sax a good adjustment. Shined up and repadded, its value would double. A really beautiful sax that deserves to be played. Ships in its original hard case.
