C-Melody Saxophone

Serial Number 97782 - (1922)


This lovely New Wonder, Series I, C-Melody Saxophone is a great player.
I just finished taking off all the keys, polishing the horn and keys, replacing one pad and several corks and regulating it as I reassembled it.
I cleaned and polished all the rods and finished by oiling all the keys and rollers.
The horn has older "Reso-pads" that are in decent condition. The pad I replaced was the side Bb which had torn leather.
I did not have a Reso-pad in that size in stock, so I used a regular pad with a flat metal resonator.
All of the rest of the pads seemed to be Reso-pads.

This horn has rolled toneholes and functioning micro-tuner neck.
I recorked the neck.
The forked Eb key is functional.

This horn comes with what looks to be the original case.
The case is in decent, but worn condition.
The place in the interior of the case where the top part of the sax body goes is made of wood and is broken.
I can take and send photos.
