Conn New Wonder 10M from
Conn New Wonder 10M from     A vintage body meets modern mechanics.   The Black Pearl Tenor Saxophone is a sensational, extremely playable instrument. We are building a new mechanism close to the Selmer MVI on the legendary vintage Conn Chu Berry body. As a result, the Black Pearl III has a handling comparable to today's saxophones and the great powerful American sound is retained.   The Black Pearl Series III is based on a long development and is based on the experience of the Series I and II.   We are proud of the Black Pearl Series III, which has found the ideal balance between vintage and modern.   The Chu Berry has a fat, broad, sonorous sound with lots of soul and swing. It responds very easily and is amazingly stable intonation for a saxophone from the 20s. The overtone composition is flatter than that of the Selmer saxophones and typical of the American vintage sound.   In the foreground of the Black Pearl is the tactile playability combined with its wonderful sound. Thanks to the removable cup and flap guards, it is extremely easy to service. The design with its round wire valve guards is a contemporary interpretation of the vintage Chu look. The surface is matt silvered, patinated and brushed, which underlines its vintage character.   The combination of today's handling and vintage sound are a great source of inspiration for every soloist.   The BLASHAUS Converted Conn Chu Berry “Black Pearl III” tenor saxophone is the dream instrument for every Conn sound fan who does not want to do without today's handling.
