1923 Conn "New Wonder II" Alto (A.K.A. the "Chu Berry" model)

Starting into another one of these beauties for a customer.  This one has Conn's beautiful bead blast matte silver finish on the body, with polished highlights, bell interior, and keys.  This is an pretty early "Chu" but it still has the nail-file G-sharp key and the more modern palm key layout that the NWII horns have.  It's getting a full overhaul and polish with modern materials and classic Conn OEM-style flat metal resonators.  This one wasn't in playable condition before starting (see photo) but I have no doubt it's going to roar just like the others I have done once the work is finished.

I am very pleased with how this one turned out - it plays with a ton of power and warmth at full volume and purrs like a kitten if you let off the throttle a bit.  Also pretty nice to look at, if you're into that kind of thing (I am).  Enjoy the updated photos!
