Price: 2,799.00
  • Year:  1927
  • Make:  Conn
  • Model: New Wonder II
  • Status:  For Sale
  • Finish: Original Gold plate
  • Serial Number: 196,10x

(On Consignment - Plays well!)

A beautiful, Conn Chu keyed to high F with serial # 196K and the traditional nailfile G#.  Gold Plate looks good at 90%+ intact! These are fun to play 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. 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!

CASE: upgraded to a modern Protec ProPac($125).

*Bias note: I play on a 1924 Conn NW1 and love it.

(Here's the last one I had, with a similar serial number even: 1927 gold conn chu)
