A nice condition Chu keyed to high F with serial # 196K and the traditional nailfile G#.  Gold Plate looks good at 90% intact! These are good players and are a bit rarer in gold plate; Conn changed the length of the soprano during the Chu span and this one is 25.5" tall. The sax shows some wear with minor scratches and small dings, bell lip shows repairs as if it was bent before--looks pretty good overall; I did preliminary smoothing. These are great vintage sopranos and this one is a beauty too. They are top of the line, well respected, unique tone that will woo the crowd and solid investments that you get to play and enjoy over time!

I will do a complete rebuild with our "Vintage Standard" set up, Prestini NS tan lambskin pads and flat metal reso's.

CASE: It has a brand NEW Protec case too! ($125+)

Compare this to other offers and you'll see this is the best package.

Rebuild and cleaning in process:
  • Sax received tan pads and upgraded Resotech Brass resonators.
  • New needle springs installed also.
