Angular arpeggios, bar honking, playing out, playing in...the tenor sax and its players have led the jazz world for more than 70 years. Any of the horns below could help you lead jazz in the next millenium.
This is Aristocrat from 1938 is in excellent condition. Body is straight and I see no signs of previous damage. Lacquer is in very good condition and all the snap in resonators are in place still! The original case is in excellent condition as well! Aristocrats from this vintage are known for their dark, lush sound that still has power and a great core. Intonation is very good and the action is smooth and light. I'll remove a few dings from the bottom bow and repair as necessary.
Later 400 that still blows well, snap-in resonators, original lacquer in very good condition.
This is a Conn new Wonder Tenor from late 1928! I'd call this tenor a workhorse. It's not going to win any beauty contests but it plays with a huge, beautiful tone. Its a joy to play because you can feel it vibrate in your hands as you play! You won't find a more powerful tenor! I've installed all new Blue Steel Springs and metal resonator pads. The body is straight, pearls are all original, rolled tone holes, gold plated bell and rollers are great too. There is plate wear on thumb rest and octave key areas but overall its probably at 75% original silver plate with gold interior bell. Write to me and I'll send you new large photos with pads installed.
Just in! A late Chu tenor still with its original white pads! Silver plate is near perfect, body is lovely, Neck is perfect! Original case too. I've polished parts up so you can see what a beauty this one is. Made in 1929 this New Wonder model was Conn's Professional tenor. It has been preserved like a museum piece. With New pads and hand polishing, it will stun in cosmetics and as a player!
