Conn company during the 1920s.

Berry played a tenor model that was built during this era, though saxophone collectors often use "Chu Berry" in reference to alto, soprano, and baritone models of the same vintage. Berry died in Conneaut, Ohio from injuries sustained from an automobile accident. Read more on Last.fm.
