Conn Gold Portrait New Wonder II Tenor Saxophone 229961$ 4,500
So if you know about vintage Conns, most of them are altos. Of the tenors, most of those are unlacquered, lacquered, or silver plate. Only a few are gold plate. Of the gold plated ones, most are satin gold with normal engraving, and only a few have the thick burnished gold plate finish. And those special horns took way more time to manufacture, as the gold has to be hand-burnished onto the horn. They also got deluxe hand engraving with special portraits done by Conn’s best engravers.
So this is one of those. It has all the boxes checked. Original burnished gold, portrait engraved, very good condition. On top of that, it has a recent, high-quality overhaul done with resotech flat metal resonators. The tone is big, wide, powerful, medium dark. The horn vibrates under your fingers when you play. There’s not much to speak of by way of past repairs. The neck octave key has been resoldered, as have a few key cage legs. A few small dings were removed from the bell and back of the bow. These are all minor things and all corrected. This horn is really nice. Even slightly nicer in person than in the photos.

Martin Handcraft Alto Saxophone 125113 Burnished Gold Special Engraving!$ 3,199
Priced to sell!
This is an alto that has it all: Rarity, condition, playability, beauty. It’s the total package. Martin altos from this era play with a uniquely beautiful mix of warmth, power, and sweetness. This is a lyrical alto that has plenty of power and bite when you need it.
It is in incredibly great condition with minimal past repairs. It has a recent, full overhaul and feels great under the fingers. It is very rare indeed to see one of these with thick, burnished gold plate as the finish. That’s the rarest finish, and I have only seen around five of these ever. The overhaul was done very well also, and the light action is easy to handle under the fingers.
The price is fantastic for something overhauled AND burnished gold plate! Really hard to beat. It also includes the Hiscox case!
