The Conn New Wonder Series II / ChuBerry was built between 1924 and 1929, and very well-known and sought-after among fans of the old Conn sound. These saxes sound warm and round, and are great for ballads and blues. Many jazz musicians still use this type of saxophone. They have a completely different sound to a Conn Ladyface.
In December 2023, I had 4 alto sax Conn ChuBerry on the workbench for maintenance and adjustment. These are available under MRO ID : AS116, AS117, AS118 and AS119. 
All 4 are different in appearance. AS116 is professionally re-lacquered with nickel-plated keywork, AS117 is an export version, AS118 has the usual lacquer wear and AS119 is a silver-plated version in mint condition.
