C.G. CONN Matte Gold Plate Chu Berry (Serial Number: 196799) Back to model

This is a nice satin gold plated Conn Chu Berry alto sax, serial number 196799. This is a real sweet playing horn.

Physically the horn is extremely nice. The original gold plate is still in great shape, over 90% intact, showing just some wear on the back of the body tube. There is no other major wear of note. There are no dents or dings anywhere. The sax does feature rolled tone holes, which are in fantastic shape, having never been filed down, and the fingernail file G# key.

The horn plays extremely well with a rich open sound that is bit brighter than expected, an added bonus.
