A lovely Conn - key of C - Soprano sax. These are great for reading along with piano music and often used to cover oboe parts.

The sax arrived with a soft glow to the finish where I was able to see that that is has a yellow-tint lacquer over the gold plating. Yes, there is still gold plating underneath (I tested this). There are some areas of wear that you can see the silver plating being exposed (underneath the gold).

CASE: vintage original. There is mild, vintage odor to mention - and I can try to treat that with my WWS methods. Just ask.

There is an included mouthpiece from the owner: it is a Runyon #5 plastic, Bb Soprano. It has a smaller, round chamber.
