Conn 1931 ‘New Wonder II/6M Transitional’ Eb Alto, Art Deco, Silver #246k (Archived)

Conn 1931 'New Wonder II/6M Transitional' Eb Alto, Art Deco

Price: SOLD
  • Year:  1931
  • Make:  Conn
  • Model:  New Wonder II-6M (Transitional)
  • Status: SOLD
  • Finish:  Original Silver Plate, Gold Bell
  • Serial Number: 246,0xx

Amazing condition! Serial #246,xxx... shining example in original silver plating!  +95% intact!, to be verified during rebuild when she is polished.  No wear on the thumbrest! Small wear on the octave key and high F palm key. The toneholes look great.

CONS: Small dent in the back bow that will come out easily, and the only other thing to mention is the knock to the neck under the neck cork area - This has a split that will need some expert solder repair.

This is an early transitional model, and true example at that with flat-Chu G#, neck tuner, even the Eb trill key like the Chu!...  The sax is in great condition, and will need a full rebuild to enjoy! We will do that for the price included, AND remove all the tarnish.

CASE: (UPDATE: a new Protec XL case can be purchased and included - $170 value.) Currently paired with what is likely the original, in rough, travel-able shape. Ask me about upgrading this. Obviously the handle as electrical wire should go... I may have a handle to add to this case if you'd prefer to keep this case.
