This is a pretty C.G. Conn Chu Berry alto saxophone in original silver plate, serial number 197660. The previous owner of this alto handled it with great care and kept it professionally serviced. It is in fantastic cosmetic and physical condition from top to bottom. There is no history of major repair on the body. The original neck with micro tuner is also with the saxophone. The neck is in great shape and has never been pulled down. This saxophone features rolled tone hole construction, fingernail file G# key, trill G# and the original set of pearl rollers on the table keys. 
The Conn plays with an ultra fast response to air and has a crisp and very powerful sound. Its key work feels smooth and fluid under the fingers which allows for a comfortable and easy play. This instrument was more recently re-padded in a professional shop. It features a new set of premium leather pads, metal domed resonators, new corks and felts. We will also check over the alto before it ships to ensure it is in perfect playing condition. These vintage Conns were essential in the jazz sound of the big band era and are a blast to play. Don't miss out on one in beautiful condition!
