C.G. CONN Virtuoso Deluxe Model - Cherub with wreath (Serial Number: 122699) Back to model

The "Virtuoso Deluxe" model C-melody saxophone is especially rare as most of the these Conn's were produced as altos and tenors. This is one of only 3 that we've ever seen!!

This particul saxophone portrays a cherub with wings wrapped in a loincloth holding a wreath and swinging from a vine. The horn is further engraved with elaborate floral designs covering the bell, up the entire body tube and on the bottom bow.

This instrument has all new top grade Prestini pads with flat metal Reso-Tech resonators. The pad work was done by Aaron Barnard and is set up with all new cork, felts, and springs. The feel is absolutely perfect. The set up on this sax has a nice open key height which really brings the instrument to life! The sound is rich and the horn is extremely responsive with an overall dark sonic character.
