From the 1926 Conn General Catalogue:
Perhaps the most popular of all saxophone family for solo work is the Eb alto. Its pitch is just right for this sort of playing although it is also used in bands and orchestras with remarkable effect...
..Conn Saxophones are noted for their beauty as well as for their utility. There is an easy grace to the curves, due to the expansion process in manufacture, which makes them mechanically precise and smooth as glass.
The beauty of the lines of Conn Saxophones is not merely an external thing of little significance. It shows, probably more clearly than anything else, how carefully these instruments have been designed and constructed. The balance which is apparent to the eye is just as apparent to the hands, and many famous stars have written to the manufacturers praising the easy playing qualities of these instruments, which is due to the proper distribution of weight for easy fingering
Conn didn't mince words when it came to sharing the beauty and construction of these instruments. Even after almost 100 years, this Conn Chu Berry Alto is in excellent physical shape and has been adjusted so it is ready to play right away. You would be hard pressed to find an alto that not only whispers softly but roars loudly with very little resistance or hiccup at any range. You're welcome to take my word for it, but if you don't, you'll know right away once you start playing this alto.
