  • Buescher True Tone Alto Original Overhauled

    $ 900

    If you are looking for a great horn for the money, this is it! It has original lacquer, and I got it from a serious player who put a high end overhaul into it. This Buescher plays beautifully and is guaranteed to please.


  • Buescher True Tone C Melody Gold Plated 127xxx

    $ 1,400

    Here is a possibly a one of a kind, special order gold plated Buescher True Tone C Melody that is also in mint/near mint condition. This, combined with the fact that it is the only Buescher C Melody that I have seen that has a front F, makes this horn very very special. If you are serious about saxophones outside the normal Bb and Eb family, then this would be a great one to play or to collect.

    Buescher True Tone IV C Melody Silver Plated 233xxx

    $ 1,950

    This is a very late C Melody saxophone from Buescher. It is quite unusual to find one this late, and I have never seen one that is any design later than this, so this is de facto the last version of a C Melody made by Buescher.

This is a heavily (burnished) gold plated Conn New Wonder II alto with beautiful portrait engraving, featuring a 20’s flapper woman with a bob haircut and a top hat!

  • Echobrass Alto BB Screws Brilhart 3-Band Ligature Echo Brass

    $ 165

    This ligature is a true reproduction of the Brilhart 3-Band Ligature: from the alloy of brass to the feel of the screws, it is exactly the same as the vintage Brilhart ligature. Same dimensions, same weight, same feel, same playing response. It’s like going back in time to buy one when they were first made! So for those of you who have always wanted this time-tested style of ligature, but have found them prohibitively expensive, now perhaps getting one is within reach.


  • EchoBrass Alto Brilhart 3-band Ligature Reproduction Echo Brass

    $ 165

    There’s a reason why the vintage Brilhart 3-Band ligatures have been singled out by the market (players) as by far the most desirable vintage ligatures. They are great ligatures. But there will never be enough vintage Brilhart ligatures to meet the high demand for this style of ligature. Thankfully, the Echobrass company has stepped in to answer this demand.

    King Super 20 Alto from 1952 Original Lacquer Full Pearls

    As far as I am concerned, the 50’s King Super 20 is the jazz alto. It’s the total package of beauty, craftsmanship, tone, ergonomics, and sheer pleasure. Pair it with a GS Special Alto mouthpiece, and you’ve got an unbeatable combination. It’s what I play, anyway. The price includes a full overhaul!


  • Leblanc System Alto Original Lacquer Rare!

    $ 950

    This is an original lacquer, original pads Leblanc System alto. These are some of the loudest, most in-tune, most modern altos ever made. This horn needs an overhaul of course. Pads are super old. But it’s one of the best deals there is in terms of quality for the money. This is a pro horn, made in France that was too expensive to keep manufacturing. These Leblanc System saxophones are seriously undervalued right now for how rare they are and for how great. The engraving is also deluxe. Includes a new ProTec Pro Pack contoured alto case as well that cost around $150.

Great deal for the price. You get way more for your money that you possibly could buying a modern horn, even used. Get this now and start enjoying the beautiful craftsmanship and sound of a top-quality vintage American-made saxophone for very little money.

It’s a true player’s VI alto.

  • Selmer Super Action 80 Series 1 Alto 334xxx

    $ 3,150

    This is a good condition Selmer Super Action 80 Alto Saxophone. This horn is a Series 1, which has a darker, more complex tone than the Series II’s and III’s do. The Series I’s also have great build quality, employing real pivot screws (not spring loaded ones like the more recent Selmers).

    The great thing about these horns is that the dark core tone is ideal for serious saxophone study/lessons/college and also combines well with a brighter jazz mouthpiece to give you a nice jazz tone as well. If I were buying a modern, do-it-all Selmer alto, and I wasn’t going to drop twice this much money on a new Selmer, I would buy a nice Series I like this over the others, hands down.


  • Selmer Super Action 80 Series 1 Alto Nice!

  • Ted Klum Acoustimax Alto Mouthpiece – Like a good Meyer

    $ 265

    This is a mouthpiece that for the price is very hard to beat. It plays like a vintage Meyer Bros with a lot of punch, and is great for jazz, lead alto, or other sorts of playing where you want a warm, full tone that has a reasonable amount of projection. The quality control on these is very good – worlds better than your modern Meyer made by Babbitt. You can just buy one of these and it will play great, as opposed to buying ten modern Meyers and maybe finding one good one.

    Exclusive to GetASax.com, this is a “GetASax Special” (GS Special) facing and baffle that Ted Klum and I collaborated to produce. This mouthpiece is the product of taking Ted’s amazing  “New York Model” (based on his favorite NY Meyer Bros ‘fat boy’ alto piece) and making it play just like my favorite NY Meyer Bros alto piece in my collection of Meyer Bros mouthpieces.
