Conn Chu-Berry Gold Plate
This is a very sweet original gold plated Conn New Wonder II Chu-Berry soprano saxophone, serial number 196352. The Chu – Berry has an amazing rich sonic timbre. It takes the air in easy and shows off a beautiful clear voice with superb clarity and projection. This one in particular was carefully played and maintained by the previous owner. It was last serviced in another shop and was fitted with a beautiful set of wood risers on the side keys and on the palm keys. These risers give the horn a nice positive feel to the touch and look fantastic as well. The Chu showcases all of the period Conn features such as finger nail file G#, rolled tone holes and circular thumb hook for the right hand. 
 
The body of the saxophone is in excellent condition with very clean original gold plate finish. Its engraving also has a nice and crisp look to it. The body tube, neck and bell regions are all nice condition. Its bell flare does have a little bit of standard cosmetic wear from years of use on a soprano peg stand. There is just one re-solder on this saxophone located on the post for the low Bb table key cluster. The soprano was last worked on and set-up in another shop. It features a set of leather pads and metal resonators. In order to keep the sale price of this saxophone down we are selling it in as is condition with out our professional set-up.
