This is a C. G. Conn Wonder Improved model tenor sax made in 1916 in Elkhart, Indiana, USA.
It has just had a full restoration (the complete works! new premium quality calf pads, felts/corks, posts realigned, springs, toneholes - everything perfectly worked on to bring this horn to optimal playability) by legendary sax guru Rupert Noble costing over £500.00.
This is a beautiful sounding instrument that plays really well - over 100 years old and still going very strong! No reason why it won't last another century. It has a terrific warm, bold tone - plays very easily transferring octaves incredibly well with great intonation. Rupert's done an amazing job bringing this horn truly back to life - it's very credible and will fit into lots of playing situations - an easy horn to fall in love with!
This sax is in pretty good condition for a centurion - very clean, a few little scuffs, knocks and so on - it has had some solid professional repairs done by Rupert (couple of posts resoldered) and so on but overall a good honest vintage sax - it looks great with a nice, faded patina.
Comes complete with brand new shaped Gator flight case with shoulder strap and of course, our famous 12 month warranty!
