GetASax Pro Saxophones
Brian Curry, Owner
Serious about Saxophones
At GetASax.com, the goal is to do saxophones right. There are lots of places to buy a saxophone. This one focuses on quality.
The goals are to give you:
- Excellent customer service. We will email you back within 24 hours in most cases.
- Detailed photographs of the horns – you can now make the images fullscreen by clicking the arrow in the top right to see super-detailed images.
- Detailed and accurate descriptions of the saxophone. Most dealers keep descriptions to a minimum, because they are afraid of scaring away buyers by revealing the details of condition.
- Quick shipping: Typically, we ship Mondays and Wednesdays, but we can accommodate needs for rush shipping when possible.
- A Money Back Guarantee if you are not satisfied with the horn. We stand behind the horns we sell and will take care of you if you have a problem. No restocking fee!
In short, we will do what it takes to be the best vintage and professional saxophone shop on the internet. Contact us by email at [email protected] if you have questions!
GetASax Pro Saxophones is owned and operated by me (Brian). I write the descriptions, put up the photos, answer messages and take out the trash. As you might imagine, I love saxophones!
I have been playing and teaching saxophone for over twenty-five years. I studied saxophone in college, and I have played in numerous ensembles and settings over the years. I love getting each horn to play its best before sale. Fixing up a vintage horn and hearing it sing again is an intrinsically rewarding experience. Purchasing such a vintage saxophone is a vote for quality and craftsmanship in a world full of the cheap and disposable.
I began buying and selling saxophones twelve years ago, when my first son was born, and teaching saxophone lessons no longer was enough to pay the bills. I had many students who really needed a better saxophone so that they could advance in their playing. Getting a good saxophone got the horn ‘out of the way’ so to speak, so that they could focus on music!
Before long, I found that there are many people out there looking for a nice saxophone, but who end up with something disappointing! They primarily want to get something that really plays well, but most horns on the internet are not in truly good playing condition. You send your money to some random eBay seller, and you get who knows what! And with saxophone repair also expensive and hard to find, it’s easy to waste a lot of money buying junk.
When you buy from GetASax, you are getting a horn that has been expertly examined and adjusted so that it is free from unpleasant surprises for you. Many of the horns on the site are sold in top playing shape. I spend a ton of money on the best repair available, and I get as many nice vintage horns overhauled a year as I can. See the ‘why buy from GetASax’ page for details.
My customer feedback bears this out. Google GetASax review and read more widely, or ask on a forum or on a Facebook group if you want to check the business’s reputation.
This fact, together with the fact that I offer a full return policy, takes the risk out of buying from a distance.
Though it is more work, having my own website also allows me more personal interaction with you. It lets me customize the buying experience to include many large pictures and multiple payment options, including credit card. It also allows me to offer you horns at lower prices, because I can avoid paying high eBay or consignment fees.
