C.G. Conn Model 16V EEb Contrabass Sarrusophone in Silver Plate SN 1119954 AMAZING
Shipping Cost : $65.00
This is an EXQUISITE Conn EEb contrabass sarrusophone.
In my opinion, the sarrusophone is the best choice for a reed player to play in the contrabass register. Fingering is almost identical to saxophone fingering, the bore is thin enough to allow you to play real phrases, and its a lot less expensive than a contrabass sax or a tubax. Conn made the best sarrusophones the world had ever seen. They had all the features that made Conn saxes great - rolled tone holes, heavy gauge metal, and the attention to detail that made Conn world-famous.
This particular sarrusophone is in excellent condition. This horn has just had a complete rebuild by Carlo Sbisa, and all pads and corks and the action are in excellent condition. Instrument has had a long history of dents - some of which remain due to the work required to fix them, but there is nothing major, and they do not affect playing in any way. Instrument plays very well and feels great. Original burnished silver plate is 99% present and looks gorgeous. Includes the original case.
