Once upon a time, Geo M Bundy was a craftsman at C.G Conn's factory producing saxophones that would change the shape of the saxophone sound. Once Bundy moved on from his previous employer and started making saxophones, the Bundy company was born and there was another American made saxophone on the market. In the subsequent years, Bundy saxophones of this era have earned a reputation for flexible, powerful and classically American in their sound. Featuring many of the characteristic sound and ergonomic attributes of a vintage Conn saxophone, Bundy horns play beautifully and with their sleeper-horn status, tend to not be as rough on the purse. This is an ideal horn for a player who wants that American sound, to explore with a new sound concept or someone who is looking for a back up to their NWII, without having to drop the coin on a direct match. Sounds like a good deal to me.
