Conn Chu Alto – Micro Tuner Neck – Needs Overhaul
This is a nice Conn New Wonder II “Chu Berry” alto saxophone, serial number 204180. The Conn altos from this period are iconic items from the 1930's big band era. This one is in good shape and has a good look about it as well. It showcases the original silver plate finish with gold wash bell flare, trill G#, finger nail file G# and the micro tuner neck. The micro tuner is functioning and free moving at this time. 
 
The physical condition of the body is excellent. Looking over it closely there is no history of major past repair. Its body tube, rolled tone holes, bow, bell and bell cap are all in great shape. This sax came into our shop on an old set of pads well past their prime and is not currently playing.  We would love to do this thing up right but with the long line in our repair shop we need to let some inventory go in as is condition. As such we are offering this one at a lower price point. This sax is in great physical condition and could be a great pro player after a good cleaning and straight forward mechanical overhaul. 
 
If you have the time to wait and would like us to do a professional grade overhaul on this horn please make the selection on the drop down menu. The Saxquest professional overhaul will include a complete dissemble, cleaning, precise key fitting and regulation. Once complete it will be in perfect playing condition with all new pads, felts, corks and metal domed resonators. Our current overhaul turn around time from point of sale is 8 to 10 weeks.
