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.

***Currently waiting for a WWS tune up.
