Cannonball 2009 ‘Big Bell Stone Series – Raven’ Bb Soprano, Curved, Black Nickel #130k

$1,799.00 - Who doesn't love the look of black nickel, must less matte black? I will confess that this sax has a tone that lives up to the "big bell" name. There is a nice mid-core resonance that mellows out the tone from other modern textures. It still contains the modern punch with the clarity and the metal resonators help that too - it is definitely 'louder' than a vintage sax.
Comes with TWO Necks, silver one for more clarity and ring, the black matte one for a softer, mellow tone. Sax has high F# & high G keys.
CASE: - Yes. Original hard case in great shape
Cosmetic Rating: 9.9

Conn 1929 ‘New Wonder II – “Chu Berry”‘ Bb Tenor, #236k

$1,599.00 - Budget-Gigger: Conn "Chu" Tenor! This will be a great gigging sax for the venues that you want a killer tone and don't want to bring your high-priced sax. This one will be a great player, and it will help you not freak out over ding and pings. It has some of those that will be forever 'beauty marks'. It is missing the rear key guard on the Eb trill key. The finish on this sax is lacquer, but it was a [no engraving] Conn. So it originally was likely a nickel-plate sax. Thus, this is the 1st time lacquered, or a relacquer.
CASE: newer Protec XL ($250!) in great condition.
REBUILD: Rebuilt elsewhere, it has brown kangaroo leather pads with domed nickel resos. They look like musicmedic pads - they have lots of life left.
I'll go through this sax and give it a full adjustment, because it needed this on arrival, and I'll make sure it's ready to turn heads.

Conn 1915 ‘New Wonder I’ Bb Soprano, Curved, Detachable Neck, Silver #34,72x (Archived)

SOLD - A rare DETACHABLE NECK Conn Curved soprano. Wow - I love it. The Serial #34k makes it one of the earliest NW1 curved soprano numbers that I've seen. It is keyed to high F, and it was made without pearls on the made key stacks. Finish: Original Silver with gold wash bell(worn). No major damage to report except that I will resolder the Eb bell guard foot (a few others have been resoldered over time). Also a ding in the bell above Bb tonehole, the neck is a bit loose right now and will need fitted to be be enjoyed.
CASE: Comes with a original hard case in good shape!
