Conn Tranny vs. Chu vs. Buescher TH & C
What a choice i've got to make here! Three awesome saxes, all at the same price.
The tranny had an old relacquer over the bare brass - so it looks pretty ordinary, but it has a monster sound.
The Chu is 99.9% percent original silver with gold wash bell - it looks awesome - has a good sound, but not quite as good as the tranny.
The Buescher is one of the hardest-to-find saxes in Aus.
I play a lot of big band stuff - varies from rock to funk to swing to outright jazz - and play in a 6-piece combo, so i need a pretty versatile horn - anyone with experience or words of wisdom??
To connsaxman_jim, if you have a 10m and a TH & C, what do you use each of them for?
For those interested, i've read a couple of threads and a few websites regarding the transitional models, and this is a bare brass, split-bell key model, with no engraving (just CG Conn).
What do people think - does the advantage of finding a completely original chu tenor outweigh the fact that its' sound is a little behind the tranny?
