HELP, I Want One!

Here's a neat old antique for collectors on a budget: a 1912 vintage Conn Wonder Improved series tenor sax in high pitch, serial number 23773. This tenor is still in factory original silver plate with gold wash in the bell. If you like the old stuff, this is a cool find for a very low price.

 

This early 20th century sax shows a starting point from which Conn made so many improvements later on. It features straight tone holes, metal touches instead of pearl, and antiquated mechanims throughout. Being in high pitch, it would not tune in the modern band setting. The original silver plate is tarnished but in decent condition with mild finish wear here and there. The bell flare shows history of past dent work but is solid. Pads are old, and the sax is not in playable condition; it is being sold as-is.

 

This a neat horn to compare to Conns made in the 30s and 40s, as well as modern saxophones made today, to see how far we've come. It ships in a hard case with original neck.
