Conn New Wonder 1 C Melody Saxophone Original Nickel Plate Good Condition 70276$ 300
This is a nice, clean original nickel plated Conn New Wonder 1 C melody saxophone. It has OLD pads and needs a full repad. I am pricing it so low that you can get it nicely overhauled by your local woodwind shop and still be into it for not too much money. The nickel plate is extremely durable and will shine up to a beautiful finish, and it will also last nearly forever. It doesn’t tarnish like silver, so it will stay bright even if you play it a lot or leave it out or don’t wipe it off very often.
If you want a budget C melody made by Conn that sounds big and warm and plays nicely, this will be that horn, after you get it overhauled. Only one available.

Conn New Wonder 1 C Melody Saxophone Plays Well! 79645$ 475
This is a nice, clean original bare brass Conn New Wonder 1 C melody saxophone. It has actually been repadded at some point, and the current pads are still sealing well. They’re not new, but they do play just fine. This is a fun horn to play, with a big, warm, vintage 1920’s velvety sort of tone. Stand at the piano with your family member, and play along with the music! You don’t have to transpose. That’s actually very nice. I love my personal C melody sax, which is also a Conn.
Bare brass is nice because you really can’t hurt it. The horn will pretty much always look the same, unless you want to disassemble and polish it up. You could even get it lacquered, and it would look new, if you fall in love with this and want to restore it to a brilliant shine at some point in the future.
If you want a budget C melody made by Conn that sounds big and warm and plays nicely, and you don’t want to spend a lot of money at all, this would be your horn. It’s pretty hard to beat for the price! Conn made the best C melody saxophones.
Note: My favorite mouthpiece for C melody is the Morgan hard rubber in a 5 or 6 tip. It sounds full and open like a tenor sax.
