C.G. CONN "Portrait" Gold Plate "Angel" (Serial Number: 180010) Back to model

Here's a near mint gold plated C.G. Conn "Chu Berry" alto saxophone, serial number 180010. This alto is in incredible condition and is a real sweet player. This model features the portait of an angel engraved on the bell.

Physically, this sax is as close to 100% as it gets. There are no dents, no dings, no dent repairs, and no resoldered joints, anywhere on this horn. The original Conn tuner neck is also in excellent shape. The horn does feature rolled tone holes, the fingernail file G# key, and a separate trill G# key.

It plays with a real sweet sound, but still has a nice edge like you expect from a vintage Chu. It is extremely free blowing and very responsive.
