You never see burnished Conn sopranos with special portrait engraving. This one has a train scene, which I find extremely delightful. This beautiful gold-plated soprano saxophone was also recently overhauled and plays well on the fresh pads. There’s no significant past damage. Original gold plate.
The tone is warm, spread, and pleasant to listen to. Compared to modern sopranos, it almost sounds like a different instrument. It’s hard to capture on the recording below, but listen with good headphones and you’ll get a rough idea. It’s better in person!!
I’ve only seen one other portrait soprano like this, and it had an owl on it and sold in 1 day.
