Conn 1927 ‘New Wonder II – “Chu Berry”‘ Bb Soprano, Gold Plate #196k (Archived)

SOLD - 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 woe 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! ($100+)

Buescher 1977 ‘Bundy – Selmer USA’ Eb Baritone, Low Bb #690,xxx

RENTAL/Available - This bari is from the good 70s era, still in the student line but great sound for the price. Serial #690xxx. lacquer body, nickel keys. It's basically the end of the Buescher line design with the Selmer takeover logo so it has that big bell like the "Buescher 400". Baritones always get beat up. This beast got a lot of dings and dents (mostly in the bell and bottom) and I will do my best to make them only minor ones. There will be a few that I can't reach on the neck and one medium on on the SelmerBundy690k9.jpg (3435958 bytes)SelmerBundy690k8.jpg (3562744 bytes) backside. Comes with neck and hard case--case in fair-to-poor condition.
I might end up putting some duct-tape reinforcement on the case. sorry, no mpc. I hope to keep this at $900 but i will have to report back and adjust price as necessary after the tuneups.
