Conn New Wonder II Alto Saxophone "Chu Berry" 1929 - Brass Lacquer. This instrument came to me after being stored for a long time. It has been sympathetically restored with new pads, regulated, adjusted and is ready to play. The bell engraving is a little feint, so I think it may have been re-lacquered at some point in the past or it could have just been polished a lot.
I have tried to preserve as much of the original as possible. The neck had been pulled down and working on it has brightened the brass, although the patina should blend in with time. The rolled tone holes are in great shape and the pads seal very well.
The complicated octave mechanism on this model is very smooth and working well. Intonation is as good as any other alto I've played and the tone is sublime. The rollers all work freely. It comes with a nice, more modern case, original mouthpiece and a great Selmer Paris ligature.
