  • GS NEW YORK Alto

    * GS NEW YORK Alto Mouthpiece Meyer Bros NY Replica

    $ 199

    Introducing the GS NEW YORK alto mouthpiece! This is an extremely precise copy of my favorite Meyer Bros New York alto piece from my collection of New York Meyer mouthpieces.

    A great New York Meyer just sparkles. The response is clean, warm, and effortlessly free blowing, but centered and with an elusive extra magic to it – even compared to any other version of Meyer.

    What you get: The Best Meyer Ever

    If you’re not a vintage mouthpiece geek, you probably didn’t know that there are three different mouthpieces that are stamped Meyer Bros New York (not incuding the Tru-Flex or the NYUSA). The first is a rather stubby, fat bodied one. Then this one that the GS NEW YORK copies, with NEW YORK on the same side as MeYeR and ‘medium chamber’ in small font on the table side. The last version has a fatter body again, and has MEDIUM on the same side as MeYeR and NEW YORK on the table side. The following photo makes this clear.

    Some folks prefer the third version. I prefer the second, though we may offer the third version as a GS mouthpiece someday as well. The one we copied has just the right balance of warmth and projection to stand out as the one, holy grail, best-ever (in my opinion anyway) do-it-all alto mouthpiece that you need. There are lots of other great alto mouthpieces on the market, but to my knowledge nobody has actually successfully produced an exact copy of a Meyer Bros NY like this before, until now.

    These also all get hand faced by me. That’s the main slow step in getting them to you, but I’m facing them as fast as I can while keeping the facing work perfect. The hand facing is a step that you can’t skip. If you try to make a replica mouthpiece and you don’t replicate a really excellent facing, you might as well not bother. So you get my favorite 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 facing that I’ve played so far, on whichever tip mouthpiece you request. Tips are as follows: 4= .069″   5= .072″   6= .076″   7= .080″ 8= .085″.

    The baffle on each tip opening is placed just where Meyer would place it relative to the tip rail and chamber, so each one is a really good copy of the appropriate tip of Meyer Bros. One big advantage we have is that we make these entirely in house, so we can keep improving them until they are perfect. By using biocompatible dental resin and 3D printing for the complex, organic chamber and baffle shapes, we can keep improving and iterating the model until each one is perfect. We spend a LOT of time and effort on that, and I hope that it shows in the quality of mouthpiece and the playing experience that you get.

  • Alto Meyer Hard Rubber BB Screws Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Saxophone Selmer Vandoren

    $ 165

    For hard rubber alto saxophone mouthpieces like Meyer Bros, GS New York, Selmer Soloist, Vandoren Jumbo Java and all Brilharts. 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.

  • Alto Meyer Hard Rubber Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Saxophone Selmer Vandoren

    $ 165

    This ligature fits almost all hard rubber alto saxophone mouthpieces, like Meyer Bros, GS New York, Selmer Soloist, Vandoren Jumbo Java, all brands of Meyer copies, Ted Klum Acoustimax and New York model, all Brilharts etc. 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, there is now a high-quality, hand made reproduction available to meet this demand. These are made by a small company in South Korea that cares about getting saxophone equipment right. These ligatures get rave reviews by the people who buy them. I don’t want to make huge claims for a ligature, but I will say that people tend to LOVE them. They’re beautiful, simple, and easy to use, and they sound great.

  • Alto Beechler Bellite Metal Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Echo Master

    $ 165

    This ligature fits thin metal alto saxophone mouthpieces like Beechler Bellite and other very slim body metal alto mouthpieces, like Brilhart levelaire, and some modern pieces like Guardala handmade. That’s ALL that this ligature fits. This is a listing for the ligature only, not a mouthpiece. 

    For Dukoff Miami alto, please buy the ‘soprano’ ligature here, because the soprano ligature fits Miami Dukoff metal alto mouthpieces *perfectly*. The soprano ligature also fits metal Otto Link alto mouthpieces very nicely.

    Brilhart Hard Rubber 7* Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece EG Reface Excellent MPC560

    $ 750

    This Hard Rubber Brilhart is a lovely (and highly-coveted) vintage jazz mouthpiece that has a lot more in common with a Link Slant signature Tone Edge or Dukoff Supersonic than with other Brilharts. One of the best vintage tenor mouthpieces ever, bar none. This particular one comes from a small collection of the best vintage Brilharts amassed by a friend of Arnold Brilhart who has now retired from playing tenor. It has scooped sidewalls and large round chamber, rollover baffle, and the tip has just been opened to 0.105″ by Erik Greiffenhagen. The facing is perfect, and responds effortlessly in all registers, with a balanced, comfortable feel. Erik is widely-recognized as one of the best mouthpiece refacers around today. He uses the best authentic vintage curves for his facings, so this piece is just like it would have been if it were originally opened to a 7*. (All mouthpieces started at 0.0″ tip.) This is truly ‘one of the good ones’ and it’s priced very reasonably for all that.

    Beautiful almost new example of a rare Streamline Brilhart Ebolin alto mouthpiece. Stamped 3*, it measures like a Meyer 5 tip at .074″ on the original facing. This is often the case with Brilharts, where you only know the tip by measuring.

    This mouthpiece plays great with a beautiful warmth and fullness that also does not lack projection. Brilharts like this are among my favorite vintage alto mouthpieces (along with Meyer and MC Gregory).

    If you happen to want the rare and collectible original Brilhart BB screws streamline alto ligature and cap, I have one in my collection that fits this mouthpiece that I would be open to selling.

    Sometimes heavy use is a sign of love and admiration. This Brilhart has signature straight sidewalls, medium-large chamber, mild rollover baffle. Tip opening measures 0.093″. Great classic big band tone. Moderate projection and medium resistance. It works well, but watch out for the major crack in the shank. Should be clamped before extensive use.

    Buescher True Tone Alto Saxophone 200008 Original Silver Plate Good Condition

    The Buescher True Tone alto saxophones are excellent instruments for a wide range of playing. They have great intonation, and a beautiful, warm, round tone that works great for classical alto or concert band, or any setting where you want to have a big, beautiful, ‘sweet’ alto saxophone sound. This example comes from a collector who sold it to me together with a few other choice True Tones. It has old pads, so it needs an overhaul. As such, I have it priced really low for what you get. This horn should be amazingly beautiful when polished up and repadded, and it will be a reliably great player for many many more years to come. I love the rose gold wash inside the bell, and the original silver plate is also in quite good condition. This is a great serial range for a true tone. Many of my favorite playing Bueschers have been around 180-220k serial.

    Only one available!

    We pay the best prices for great saxophones.

    This is a nice old hard rubber clarinet mouthpiece measuring .050″ (1.27 mm). From the stamping of the facing on the table, I’m thinking this was made by Woodwind Company of NY for Buffet, as a jazz-leaning clarinet piece. That’s just a guess. I’m not an expert on clarinet mouthpieces. Let me know if you know more about it. It plays well with a warm, rich tone and plenty of power.

    Buffet Super Dynaction Alto Saxophone Original Lacquer 17435

    $ 1,900

    On Hold.

    Buffet Super Dynaction Alto saxophone in original ‘sparkle’ lacquer. This horn is in on consignment, and has good pads, and plays well, with a big, operatic sort of voice. It’s centered like a Selmer from the 50’s, and medium dark, but wider and very open throated. Intonation is good. Keywork is Selmer-like and comfortable. Sometimes these get called a ‘poor man’s Mark VI’ but I’d prefer to think of them as a high-quality, professional mid-century French saxophone in their own right. But I guess, when you figure a new student Yamaha is over $2k, then this becomes a pretty good deal with good pads at this price for a pro vintage alto that is comparable to a Selmer. It has had some small dents removed in the bell area and back of the bow, but that’s just par for the course with a vintage sax, and the work was done well. It’s otherwise in quite good shape. It comes in the the delightful original Lifton case with blue interior. Someone should make a case like this again.

  • Conn 26M VIII Connqueror Alto Original Lacquer Excellent! 292445

    $ 3,750

    This is a beautiful example of a rare Conn Connqueror 26M Alto saxophone with original lacquer and VIII stamp. The Connqueror is the most mechanically sophisticated saxophone that Conn ever made. It is a pre-war 6M body tube and neck, with all new keywork design, extra engraving, and solid silver on all the key touches that are not pearl. The ‘permadjust’ system is the big development on the Connqueror altos. You can read about that on Matt Stohrer’s website, or watch his repairman’s overview of the 26M on Youtube. This one has its bits and bobs intact, and is in very good condition. It has been repadded and plays, but I’m really picky about these and think this one could probably benefit from being overhauled again. It feels pretty good under the fingers, and it plays fine, but really, you want to get the permadjust stuff setup absolutely perfectly and then it just stays in perfect adjustment after that, basically forever, assuming you swap out pads with pads of the same thickness when you eventually do swap pads. Cosmetically, this horn is just great, with only some minor lacquer wear. It has to be one of the nicest 26M Connqueror altos out there. Definitely the nicest one for sale currently, and priced very reasonably. I really like this one.

  • Conn 8M C Melody Unbelievable Condition Fresh Overhaul Original Silver Naked Lady 274636

    $ 6,000

    This is a wonderful and extremely rare example of a very late serial Conn 8M C Melody saxophone with the ‘Artist’ / ‘Naked Lady’ engraving pattern on the bell. It’s gorgeous original silver plate finish with gold wash in the bell. It just got a full top-shelf overhaul with Italian leather Pisoni pads and nice sent of screw in reusable flat metal (brass) resonators. If you want a really good C melody for less money, look for a late New Wonder II Conn – around 200k serial if you can find one. This particular late serial version is ultra-rare — I’ve only seen 7 of them ever. This is the latest one I’ve ever sold. The cool thing about the later Conn C melody saxophones is that the tone opens up and gets really big and projecting like a tenor. If you use a GS RESO C Melody mouthpiece on this horn, you can get a tone that you just can’t get on any other type of saxophone. It’s in C but it’s fat and full and open like a tenor, but it concert pitch. Nothing else sounds like this. I had Tyler do a demo with one of my Conn C melodys and the GS RESO, so that you can get a basic idea of what it can sound like. Tyler had never played a C melody before, so I think he did pretty well for his first time!

  • Conn Art Deco Transitional NWII / 10M Tenor Original Silver Plate Recent Overhaul 244566

    $ 4,500

    This is a players Conn tenor – recently overhauled really well, and pads are still fresh. Original satin silver plate with gold wash in the bell. It’s been played a lot, because it plays well!  The fresh overhaul feels great under the fingers. This is a horn that needs nothing and plays its best right out of the case. It has flat metal reso-techs and Pisoni leather pads, strap hook moved for balance, and the desirable art deco engraving.

    The 238-247k serial range is among the most prized among tenor players who love Conns. These tenors have a huge sound like the New Wonder II, but some key work and tuning improvements looking toward the 10M. This is a really fine playing example that should make anyone happy who wants a huge Conn tone on a horn that they don’t have to overhaul or plan on spending any money on anytime in the near future. Only one available!

    $ 2,350
  • Conn Connstellation Alto Saxophone 28M Very Good Condition Original Lacquer 335771

    $ 2,250

    You could be forgiven for thinking that because there are two original lacquer, very good condition Conn 28M “Connstellation” saxophones on my website at the moment that these are somewhat common, but I assure you that is not the case!   I will copy and paste the general statements about the 28M from the other description, with the unique description of this particular instrument’s physical and playing condition at the bottom.

    The Conn 28M will always have a special place in my heart.  It represents the last time one of the great American saxophone manufacturing companies tried something wholly new, and although the horn never really found a market and not many were made, they are fantastic instruments that besides being unique and historically interesting, play *really* well.  

    These saxophones were redesigned, utilizing many ideas from Allen Loomis (Conn’s resident saxophone visionary) and Hugh Loney, with input from Santy Runyon, with the aim of creating a saxophone that had extremely slick keywork and a very balanced scale.  The keywork, although familiar under the fingers with regard to placement and layout, is mechanically quite different from any other saxophone and has been built from the ground up with the goal of reducing mechanical friction. There are no pivot screws anywhere on this saxophone, instead the long rods have a very long hinge rod with the middle machined down so only the ends touch.   The G# has a very unique torsion mechanism to provide a G# feel that is smooth throughout the range. The side keys are designed so that the angle and distance of travel is the same for each key. There are adjustment screws on the upper and lower stacks as well as the left hand pinky table. The bell keys are on the left side, and the pantsguard/bell keyguard is a large acrylic plate that was designed with the idea in mind of allowing the horn to vent properly regardless of playing position or clothing choice.  The octave mechanism has three pips (octave vents), one on the neck and two on the body, which has the end result of a very clear middle D and no hiss on the A or G#, as well as excellent intonation. The keywork in general is very light, and the pearls are larger than usual for Conn and a little flatter. The overall feeling is of a very light horn, extremely slick, easy to play, excellent intonation, and very even throughout.

    The one downfall of this design is the pantsguard, which is fairly brittle and often broken.  Although nowadays there are excellent replacements available, this one has its original guard in decent condition.  There is one repaired crack (visible in the photos) and the common small cracks radiating from some of the screw holes.  I would anticipate, absent any further damage, that this keyguard will last and should not present any problems- although I will furnish you with contact information for obtaining a well made (and somewhat more durable) replacement should you ever need it.  And believe it or not, I have experience shipping these so you can rest easy knowing I will remove it for shipping, wrap it separately, and it will arrive to you in good condition.

    This instrument plays quite decently on what appears to be an older repad with plastic domed resonators, with a strong, moderately bright, cheerful voice.  The clarity of the tone is notable, and it is a lot of fun to play with a unique look and feel and timbre that would lend itself easily to classical, big band, or small group jazz.  The lacquer is original and in good condition with some playing wear and a few stand scratches near the low C#, with no evidence of past repairs or dents or resolders of any kind. It is also a unique and interesting piece of saxophone history, in very good condition, and whoever owns this instrument next will have a lot of fun being its steward for the next generation.

    This late Conn New Wonder II alto sax is in very good original condition, and just needs a quality overhaul to be an excellent player. It’s original silver plate, and it will shine up and look amazing with a cleaning and polishing job put into it. These late New Wonder II’s start to be called transitional when they get their first 6M-anticipating feature: the raised side E key touch. Besides that, this is pretty much a New Wonder II, though Conn also starts to experiment with the neck around this serial, to improve intonation and give slightly more focus to the sound (still very wide and spread). When overhauled nicely, these altos are unmatched for the amount that they feel alive in your hands. They vibrate and respond so amazingly well. I never want to put the horn down!

    $ 4,250

    New photos coming soon when the overhaul is done beginning of April 2022.

    This is one of the first Couf Superba 1 tenors made, and it was picked out by a guy who worked with Herb Couf to make the Superba 1 a reality. It was used on a Philip Glass recording along the way, and then played a bunch of jazz. It has original lacquer over the original silver plate (very rare finish for a Keilwerth), and where the lacquer is flaking off, the silver is tarnishing. This thing is/was a big player on old pads, but I am now getting it completely overhauled, which is now included in the price.  You’d be hard pressed to find a bigger sounding tenor for the money. The tone of the Superba 1 is dark like an SBA, but wider like a Conn, and it stays fat in the palm keys unlike a Selmer. Plus it has modern keywork. This tenor was on consignment, but I bought it so I could overhaul it. These horns are so good that Tyler, who does the GetASax YouTube channel, picked his Superba 1 out of all the horns that came through the shop over a period of years, as being the best one. You can hear Tyler’s Couf Superba 1 on the GetASax YouTube channel in several of the videos. The Superba 1 is one of those sleeper tenors that you don’t hear as much about for how good it is. Definitely recommended! Vintage tone + modern keywork + top build quality = what everybody wants.

  • EchoMaster Baritone Ligature LARGE For Selmer, Vandoren, Yanagisawa, Gale and Similar Mouthpieces

    $ 165

    EchoMaster Baritone Saxophone Ligature for larger bodied baritone saxophone mouthpieces. This is what Brilhart might have made if they had ever made their incredibly popular BB screws ligature for baritone saxophone, instead of just for alto and tenor. Thanks to EchoMaster, now you can play one of these on your baritone mouthpieces too! There are two sizes that fit baritone mouthpieces, so check the photos. I tried this on lots of baritone mouthpieces to see what kinds of them it fits, and I took lots of photos showing fit. Check the slim body baritone ligature listing as well, to see if your mouthpiece falls into that category instead, and email me at [email protected] if you are not sure. This ligature is stamped BT on the side, and it fits larger body mouthpieces. However, it does not fit really large vintage baritone mouthpieces from the 1920’s like the old Conn Eagle, or vintage Lelandais, Martin, Buescher etc. If you have a vintage hard rubber Otto Link, here are a few notes on fit. The very oldest Otto Link Slant Tone Edge like this has a huge body almost like a bass sax mouthpiece, and will not fit this ligature. The Slant immediately after, like this, will fit this ligature. And the modern Tone Edge also fits this ligature, unless it is really slim like a Meyer, in which case you need the Slim body baritone ligature instead.

    EchoMaster Brilhart style ligatures for BARITONE Saxophone now available! If you’re here, you probably know about these ligatures already, but basically, these are an extremely good reproduction of the most desirable vintage ligature that was made by Brilhart in the 50’s and 60’s. This is a special new product sized for baritone saxophone mouthpieces, which Brilhart never made.

    I’ve been holding off listing these for a while, because I wanted to figure out which ligature fits which types of mouthpieces. Bari mouthpieces have a lot more variation in diameter than alto or tenor mouthpieces do. The LARGE (BT-stamped) ligature, listed separately at this link, fits Selmer (S80 and Soloist), Otto Link Tone Edge, Gale / MC Gregory, Vandoren, Yanagisawa hard rubber, Rousseau classical and similar.

    The SLIM size ligature listed in this listing (T-stamped) fits RPC, Berg Larsen Hard Rubber, Rousseau Jazz, Rico Metallite, Meyer, and other slim baritone saxophone mouthpieces. It also fits most hard rubber tenor saxophone mouthpieces, which could be handy for some people.Soon, I will add a listing for metal Otto Link baritone mouthpieces soon, but this is the ligature that fits metal link bari pieces, and a lot of other similar bari pieces, if you’re curious.

    GS Mark II Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe Mark II Copy

    $ 199

    The GS Mark II tenor saxophone mouthpiece is an extremely precise copy of my favorite Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe Mark II tenor mouthpiece.

    What is this?

    Many players may not know much about Freddie Gregory’s Super Deluxe mouthpieces. That’s not a big surprise, as Freddie did not make that many of them, and the ones he did make are mostly still in the hands of their original owners. The few that have come up for sale over the last 5 years that I’ve seen have been priced way out of the reach of most players– typically $2400-$4000– for a mouthpiece! Which is nuts, but those who know these mouthpieces REALLY seem to be willing to pay to get one. And sadly, since Freddie died eight years ago, no more of these are available. (Till now.)

    Freddie is known both for refacing and for making his own mouthpieces. The original Super Deluxe Mark II is not a refaced mouthpiece made by someone else , the way my favorite Reso Chamber tenor mouthpiece is. The Super Deluxe model was entirely designed and made by Freddie.

    It was sold in four variations on the same design: Mark I, Mark II, Mark III, and Mark IV. They all have a good amount of projection, but the Mark I is darkest and the Mark IV is brightest. We may copy my favorite Mark IV someday as well, but I wanted to start with the Mark II because it’s bright and projecting but not too bright, and it seems to be one of the most popular ones of these. Bob Mintzer played one of these for a long time, and may still from time to time. I know he has a lot of Freddie’s pieces. Jeff Coffin plays a Mark IV, which sounds a whole lot like the Mark II that we copied for this project (Jeff was kind enough to make several audio comparison samples of the GS Mark II and his Freddie Mark IV, and they are definitely more similar than different.) Steve Neff has some original Mark II sound clips on his website here. We will do some videos as soon as Tyler is finished with the GS New York alto videos he’s working on.

    OK so that should be fairly clear now: The GS Mark II is an extremely precise copy of my favorite Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe Mark II, which is a different design from anything that Otto Link or Berg Larsen or Dukoff made etc. Along with the Mark IV, it’s his most popular design for sure.

    How does it play?

    Describing the tone is hard, because people probably haven’t played one of these. They’re also not that similar to other common mouthpieces like Meyer, Dukoff, or Berg Larsen. It’s different from any model of Otto Link, and is not a redesigned Link chamber at all. The baffle curves from nearly flat at the tip rail, into the chamber in a smooth curve, and the throat opens out into a medium-large chamber. Chamber volume is similar to a metal Otto Link, so it tunes great on basically any saxophone. The shank is long enough that you can pull out on a Conn 10M or something that wants a large mouthpiece volume, and it works well. The side walls start out nearly straight and are more scooped as it moves into the chamber. The magic in these pieces is in the baffle, and we spent a long time getting that just right.

    Tonally, my best attempt at a verbal description would be to say that this has a more projecting tone than a GS Slant or a vintage Otto Link, but it kind of opens out and gets wider and more robust as you push it. Some mouthpieces get more shrill the more air you put into them. The GS Mark II gets more lush and almost ‘operatic’ as you push it. It’s really fun to play. If you want something different from a Link style tenor mouthpiece, and you want a piece that is brighter but not too bright, and that has plenty of power and projection when pushed without getting thin and shrill, that’s what the GS Mark II really does well.

    Facing Information:

    Freddie’s facing curves are usually a couple of thousandths more open than the equivalent Otto Link, so we are reproducing his curves on the GS Mark II. The original that we copied was a 7 measuring .102″ and I also have a 7* and 8 that we used for the .107″ 7* and the .112″ 8 tip. As an interesting side note, most Freddie 8’s are actually stamped 7**, but I think that’s probably because he had them stamped 7* and then would just add another star for an 8. I’ve seen that enough times now to think it’s definitely intentional. They always seem to measure .111-.113″ for me, so we settled on .112″.

    A word on price: People are *constantly* telling me that I should raise the prices of the GS Mouthpieces. However, they are intended to be a service to the saxophone community, so that as many players as possible can get a great mouthpiece that is entirely faced by hand and that plays as well as a much more expensive original. The GS Mark II tenor mouthpiece would probably sell almost as well at double the price, but we will be keeping the price $199 as long as possible, because that’s the whole point of the project.

    $ 199

    **Update: Due to strong demand, I’m about a week behind on hand facing these mouthpieces for sale. However, regardless of which shipping option you pick, I’ll upgrade you to express 2 day shipping – or FedEx International Priority shipping if you’re overseas. So even though it’ll take me a week to make your mouthpiece, you’ll still receive it surprisingly quickly, especially internationally.

    GS SLANT is an extremely precise copy of my BEST vintage Otto Link Slant Tenor mouthpiece. More precisely, it’s a copy of an original facing 7* Florida Slant Signature Otto Link Tone Edge tenor mouthpiece in perfect original condition.

    This is the version of the ‘Slant’ that nearly everybody wants. It’s the most iconic and desirable hard rubber tenor mouthpiece ever made. When I hear people describing their ideal tenor tone online, it’s most frequently a description of what a good vintage Otto Link Slant sounds like: Dark and powerful, with a good amount of focus and projection. Brightens up and projects when pushed, but never thins out. Super even across all registers. Tunes great on almost any saxophone vintage or modern. That’s what the GS SLANT gives you, for only 15% the cost of an original vintage Otto Link Slant Tone Edge tenor saxophone mouthpiece.

    Compared to the GS RESO, the GS SLANT is a little brighter and punchier (but not bright), and more focused (though still warm and full). It has an instantly recognizable 50’s-60’s jazz tenor tone. We’ll post hi-fi sound samples of the GS SLANT on a variety of brands of saxophone very soon! See below for the GS SLANT vs Vintage Slant A/B video.

    If you’re a pro looking for the best do-it-all jazz tenor mouthpiece for an affordable price, I think you’d be hard pressed to beat the GS SLANT. It really captures the magic of the original mouthpiece, and that is saying a lot. It’s the only Slant copy I’ve seen that exactly copies a vintage Slant. Even upgrading to a vintage Link Slant at 8x the price wouldn’t actually sound better! And if you’re an amateur or younger player looking for your first good mouthpiece, this gives you the chance to jump right to an excellent mouthpiece that is completely hand faced, without messing with a bunch of machine faced intermediate mouthpieces.

    To read all about GetASax.com’s very own mouthpiece project, visit: GS Mouthpieces (main page) The big idea here is to let you experience the magic of the best mouthpieces I have ever played, for a price that makes them widely accessible for the first time.

The tone is sort of Selmer-ish but punchier like a King Super 20. But it’s not either of those. It’s its own thing – the New Vintage alto.  Easy to play delicately and softly with plenty of saturation and projection. Action is low, fast, and snappy.

    One of the most lauded modern horns by people who like vintage horns. This is the Ishimori Wood Stone New Vintage tenor in Antique Finish (patinated bare brass) and the dark lacquer version is here: https://www.getasax.com/product/ishimori-woodstone-new-with-dark-lacquer-tenor-saxophone/ Ishimori has long been Japan’s premiere saxophone repair shop. This tenor is their attempt to bring their repair expertise to bear on saxophone design. This horn has a bore and design aesthetic reminiscent of a Selmer Super (Balanced) Action, even down to the engraving and keywork styling. But as a modern horn, it hasn’t seen decades of playing and repairs. It also comes with a good setup done by Ishimori pre-sale. This is the unlacquered version of the Ishimori Wood Stone New Vintage tenor, with beautiful Selmer SBA style hand engraving. These are popular saxophones, but I’ll try to keep one in stock if possible! Ishimori is Japan’s premiere saxophone repair shop, and Mr. Ishimori has been designing, building, and repairing saxophones for many decades.

    These tenors not only sound great, but they stand out from the crowd with their excellent new horn setup done in the Ishimori workshop. The Ishimori New Vintage tenors hold up extremely well over time, and every detail of construction and assembly is optimized for ease of play. The tone on this Ishimori tenor is meant to remind you of a vintage Selmer – to my ear, it plays like a late SBA – not as loud and wide open as some Mark VI’s, but more focused than earlier Selmers also. The neck and the engraving are meant to evoke the Selmer Super Balanced Action, so I suspect that the neck is an SBA bore. The tuning is excellent. This body tube is designed to have the high F# tone hole present, so it tunes well with the high F#, and that’s also just a convenient feature. The finish is a stable patina applied to the bare brass. While it will continue to change in appearance somewhat, it will basically look like this. You get the bare brass finish plus a great unique look to the horn that ages well – much nicer than the completely shiny unlacquered finish that Yamaha does. This looks really classy.

    Ishimori New Vintage tenors play so effortlessly, they sell themselves. Every time one comes in the shop, it sells almost immediately. There’s one in stock at the moment! Get it now!

    Get this alto! If you’ve been looking for a fantastic King Super 20, this is it! Don’t wait. You could mess around and buy several that wouldn’t play as well, and waste a lot of time and money. This is close to Charlie Parker’s alto’s serial number and is the same version of Super 20 he played. It has solid silver double socket neck, ‘full’ pearls on the G#, side keys, palm keys, and octave key; bell key engraving, and all the other bells and whistles that you want. It’s kind of shocking with how much Selmers and new saxophones like Yamaha and Yanagisawa have gone up in price, that you can still buy one of the BEST altos ever made, by King that is like 10x rarer than a 5 digit Mark VI, for such a relatively low price. I play kings like this myself, so I’m biased for sure, but they really do have the best alto tone that ever existed. Pair with the new GS New York for a classic Cannonball Adderley Kind of Blue / Somethin’ Else era setup, and then practice, and you’ll get pretty close!

    Only one available. Price is not flexible. This is worth every penny.

    Ah, in my enthusiasm, I almost forgot to list past repairs – this alto has been played professionally by a superb local alto player, who is only selling it because he has to for financial reasons. It had some key guard feet slightly pushed in and some dings on the back of the bow when I got it, and those are now gone, leaving little trace. No major repairs, and no current repair issues. The pads are medium through their usable life, and I wouldn’t overhaul this anytime soon. It currently absolutely roasts on the current setup.

    Great King Super 20 alto that is also on the affordable side for one of the best vintages. This is 376523, double socket, solid silver neck, engraved bell keys, underslung octave key, but the more modern style pinky keys and a tone that is more like the ‘full pearls’ Super 20’s. This horn just got a full, top shelf overhaul with Pisoni italian leather pads and nice reusable slightly domed, metal resonators. It feels brand new under the fingers, and it is still in excellent original cosmetic condition. Only one available! $4950 incl the overhaul, which is about what you’d pay for a Yamaha, and this is much better and holds its value better too.

    If you want a nice early serial King Super 20 tenor sax that has an old relacquer and makes it way less expensive, that’s what this is. It has old pads, and it has had some small dents removed from the back of the bow / body tube that are now gone and look fine. Get it overhauled, and you’ll have a top grade tenor for about the cost of a pro Yamaha, which is great.

  • King Super 20 Tenor Full Pearls Very Good Condition Good Pads 308996

    $ 6,500

    This is the Super 20 that most people want. This is the version with the more modern LH pinky (spatula) keys, but that still has ‘full pearls’ on all the key touches, double socket, solid-silver neck, and engraved bell keys. It has had a recent repad, and I just got it freshly checked out and setup, so it’s playing quite well. There aren’t many original lacquer Super 20’s from this most desirable serial range in the world. Far fewer than people realize! There are about 10x as many 5-digit Mark VI’s as there are full pearls Super 20’s.
