C.G. CONN Matte Gold Plate Chu Berry (Serial Number: 223228) Back to model

This is a vintage Conn Chu Berry tenor saxophone in gold plate, serial number 223228. This horn has a nice gold satin finish, and looks incredible.

Physically this horn is in fantastic shape. It has greater than 95% original plating remaining, with just minor wear on the back of the body tube as seen in the pictures. There are no major dents or dings anywhere. The only resolder work is on the alternate F# key guard, and on the neck strap ring, both done professionally and look great. This horn does feature rolled tone holes, and the fingernail file G# key.

The horn plays with a rich resonant open sound, responds immediately to your air, and is an extremely sweet player. It has a very flexible sound, and a nice spread characteristic.
