1925 Conn New Wonder “Chu Berry” Alto Saxophone. This horn is in Good used condition and is a nice example of a 1925 Chu Berry vintage sax. These horns are known for their big vintage sound that rivals the sound quality of horns that are much more expensive. If you want that big vintage sound you hear on recordings, but without the price tag, then this sax is for you. This sax has serial# 158533 from 1925. It shows normal wear and tear with relatively few nicks and dings for a horn this age, overall in Good used condition. This sax can be played as is but needs some key adjustments and maybe some pad replacements. I’d recommend having a technician take a look at it to get it into top shape. With a little work this would be an excellent player’s horn. The item “1925 Conn New Wonder Chu Berry Alto Saxophone” is in sale since Sunday, April 5, 2020.

Check out my other items. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. His listing is for a vintage Conn tenor saxophone. It is a New Wonder series I, also commonly known as a pre-Chu Berry model. The serial number is 88, xxx, indicating a c. It has rolled tone holes, a front F button, a G# trill key, and a forked Eb mechanism. This sax is in excellent playing condition. It was fully dis-assembled, the body was washed, the keys were wiped down, old key oil was replaced, and it was re-assembled and adjusted. A few key corks were replaced as needed, and general adjustments were made so that all pads are sealing properly with a light touch. The pads are in excellent condition. They look relatively new, and all are matching in style, with plastic button resonators. The leather is soft and supple. I would estimate they have at least 75% of their lifespan remaining. This sax plays great from top to bottom, as you can hear in the demo video linked below. See the product in action. This sax is in very good physical condition. The body is straight. The neck looks like it might have had a touch of pull down corrected in the past, but it is in fine condition now. There are a few minor dings on the bow, but no significant dents. I don’t see any re-soldered joints. There is minimal mechanical wear to the key-work, and all of the rollers are turning freely. Alas, the lacquer is not original, but nor is it a re-lacquer. This horn is actually silver plated underneath the lacquer. It probably had the lacquer applied in the 1950’s or 60’s, when silver plated instruments went out of style. The coverage of the lacquer is nearly 100%. There is just a tiny bit of silver peeking through on the tops of some posts, and the edge of the rim of the bell, but it is barely noticeable. It has a nice vintage look to it. Please note that this horn just has the Conn logo, and no decorative engraving, which is quite common for that time period. This horn does come in its original case. The case is in very good condition for its age, although it is still a vintage case, so you’ll probably want something more modern for day to day use. The original is solid, with minimal wear. It is clean and odor free inside. It even still has its original handle! There are no other accessories included, except for the original end plug. Please feel free to message me with any questions!

Conn Chu Berry tenor saxophone. The man who inherited this sax from his dad said it had been sitting in closet several years long but it had a professional serviced year ago. He mostly plays guitar instead. Very good pads, well seal, no leak. All springs response well. Very beautiful sound as it’s fame. Nail file G# key. Play easily from bottom to top. One thing confusing is the lacquer, not sure it original or not so I assume that it has been relacquered. Normal sign of wear. No hard scratches, no dent or crack. Just very few pin head marks. Come with original neck, original hard shell case, original music holder. Neck í not bend down. Serial # starts with M.

The exact instrument model is the Conn New Wonder Series II, but many saxophonists refer to these horns as the Chu Berry model. This is a re-lacquered horn with rolled tone holes, and the famous nail file G# key. This saxophone was repaired by Dos Allen of Blueridge Horns a few weeks ago and is in perfect working condition. The Chu Berry horns are highly regarded for their tone quality, Lester Young played a similar model for most of his career, and this one is no exception, so this is a great opportunity to obtain a great vintage instrument at a great price! This sax comes with a matching vintage hard rubber mouthpiece and a modern hard case.
