G.G. Conn 1923 - C Sorpano Saxophone
This is a vintage C.G. Conn New Wonder I C soprano saxophone in original silver plate, serial number 117278. The instrument was manufactured in 1923. It is keyed from low Bb to high Eb and does feature rolled tone holes. 
The body of the soprano is in excellent condition. Its body tube is very nice as well as the bell flare area which features a gold wash. All of the rolled tone holes are in good condition and have not seen any damage or abuse over the years. It does not show any other history of major repair, no re-soldering. Physically the instrument is in exceptional condition, especially considering it is now almost 100 years old. 
It has been some time since this soprano has seen any attention in a shop. The pads on it are on the older side and are past their prime. It is playing through some leaks down to low C and is a very fun instrument to play. The sound on it is very sweet and brilliant. It is also quite free blowing as you want from any good Conn. Ultimately if you are going to want to do serious playing on it would need to be completely overhauled first. In order to keep the cost down on the instrument we are selling this one in as is condition.
