Made of vintage pure brass with brass keys and lacquered. There is evidence that this horn was originally silver plated but later on stripped and lacquered. Serial number 221XXX places the date of manufacture c.1929. The Chu Berry saxophone plays with the richest and most sonorous tone found on any saxophone. This model is one the early influences on the evolution of jazz and the smoky gritty sound so sought after by today's professionals. Mechanically the horn is in excellent condition and has been expertly serviced and set up to play. Most of the pads are new, the others look like new. The cosmetic issues on the horn are various dings in the bell section, some wear on the pearls and evidence of a resolder on a guard wire. There are a few other stray tool marks which would be normal for an instrument this age. This horn does not include a microtuner neck but does have the nail file G# key. Probably the beginning of the transition to the 6M. It plays beautifully with a rich yet free tone. We will include a full six month Warranty for service here at the store. Comes with a replacement case that has backpack straps, stock mouthpiece, reeds, neck strap, swab and cork grease. Thanks for looking! Condition: Scratches, dings and evidence of buffing on the engraving. Some wear on the key touches and a bit of lacquer wear., Brand: Conn, Exact Year: 1929, Body Finish: Lacquer, Key Finish: Lacquer, Skill Level: Professional
