  • Adolphe Sax Alto Saxophone from 1861 Rare ‘Large Bell’ Plays

    $ 3,850

    Adolphe Sax (Father) Alto saxophone, first generation (large bell).

    Here are the details:
    {23307} [ 1861 ] Alto saxophone in E♭.
    Adolphe Sax, Paris
    Inscribed with monogram trademark “AS PARIS” and “Saxophone alto en mi♭ breveté / Adolphe Sax à Paris / Fteur de la Mson Milre de l’Empereur”.

    This alto got restored in Germany, but is still not in top playing condition. It plays, but it would play better with more work. The restoration included new suitable pads, leveling/silver-soldering of toneholes, rebuilding a tonehole, brass repairs and adjusting the mechanics to good playability.

    It is a very lovely instrument and exceptionally rare. A similar one can be found at the MET MUSEUM, see online, If you’re not aware, the Met has one of the most extensive rare musical instrument collections in the world.

    It also comes with a nice mouthpiece that tunes well with the sax. And it includes the ligature (that came with the sax) with the instrument. I have tested many and this one provided for me very good response and stable intonation at A=440. It is a large chamber design similar to the ADOLPHE SAX mouthpieces, but it carries no inscription and has been opened up to a modern .080 tip.

  • 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.

    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.

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.

    Rare 50’s Berg Larsen metal alto saxophone mouthpiece! Straight sidewalls, small round chamber, bullet chamber. Tip opening measures 0.103″. Denim finish on table, duck bill beak. Usually mouthpieces that sound great on tenor are only ok on alto in the same tip number, but if you like bergs on tenor you will love this on alto too. The tip opening plays much easier than expected for this number on alto. The tone is loud and lush, just like on tenor. Great projection and power while maintaining a moderately bright tone.

    $ 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.

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.

    Brilhart Vintage BB Screws AL Metal 3-Band Alto Saxophone Ligature – The Original!

    $ 850

    This is the most desirable vintage ligature ever, and sells for high prices to both collectors and players. I have seen these sell much higher, but I can’t bring myself to ask the kinds of prices I have seen them sell for on eBay. This is the AL stamped BB screws Brilhart 3-band ligature. I have one of these myself, that I have used for many years, and I sell the excellent Echo Master Brilhart reproduction ligatures on this site also, which are true reproductions of the original. But as with famous works of art, the more copies there are, the more epic and desirable become the originals. This is a rare original one, in very good condition, and it plays great, as you would expect. This fits anything from a Selmer Soloist to a Meyer Bros NY ‘Fat Boy’ and is just a nice and well made ligature, as much as it is a collectible.

    $ 1,650

    This is a 1949 Buescher “Big B” Aristocrat, so named for the ornate engraving of a, well, a Big B on the bell.  This horn is in very good condition, and the typical wear around the fine engraving of the B on the bell is not present, which indicates that this horn has led a life mostly in a closet somewhere.  There are no resolders or past dentwork to speak of, and it plays *way* better than it should on some very old pads, but you would want to get this repadded to play like it can, which is very, very good!  

    These horns are undervalued in my opinion.  I mean, you can get this one in such great shape with all of its original Snap-on resonators and overhaul it for not a whole lot more than a Yamaha student model in total- seems like a good buy to me! They combine excellent intonation, comfortable keywork, top notch build quality, and beautiful lacquer and engraving with a warm, centered tone.  Johnny Hodges famously played one of these, and his tone is a very good example of the blend of sweetness and power these horns possess.

    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.

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.

    Conn 10M Transitional Tenor Saxophone 1933 Fresh Overhaul Excellent Player

    This is a hard to find example of a very late ‘transitional’ Conn New Wonder II / 10M tenor saxophone. It has features of each model – mostly 10M keywork at this point, except for the bell keys still being split between left and right. Original lacquer!

    Just back from a near-overhaul extremely comprehensive setup. It had new pads when I got it in, but a bad overhaul, so we re-overhauled it but reused the pads, which were fine.  We disassembled, cleaned throughout, oiled, took out all the pads, and reseated them with extra adhesive, and replaced many of the tiny adjustment screws that Conns come with. This tenor also got the neck ‘fit’ to the tenon, which makes a big difference, and it got new rollers too, to match the originals. Now, it plays effortlessly, and feels and looks great. The pads are all sealing super well and should be setup for the long haul – unlikely to need more than minor adjustments for a long time! That’s great, because most people have never, I think, actually experienced a vintage saxophone like this when it was totally ‘right’. When it is, you see why these horns have such lasting value and popularity. They’re really just about the best sounding tenors ever. And it’s LOUD too, but without breaking up. The loudest Selmer is only about half as loud as a good Conn like this. And the body tube vibrates in your hands when you push it. It’s just the best.

    You get it for less than these often go for, simply because it has been played a lot and has some keyguard resolders and general lacquer wear. It’s all fixed up though, and should play great for a long time with just minor regular maintenance.

    Those Connoisseurs and Conngnoscenti (sorry, couldn’t resist) out there who know how great the late transitional tenors are can advise you on this one. It has the wideness and ‘wildness’ of a New Wonder II, but a little more focus, a little more slotted intonation, and the faster keywork of a 10M. If you want more focus, and even more slotted in intonation, then get a later 10M. If you want something a bit darker, and more spread, get an earlier NWII. If you want a little of both, get this! These tenors are only going up in value, so it’s also a solid buy as an instrument that will hold its value well when you go to sell it later.

    Conn 10M Transitional Tenor Saxophone Recent Overhaul!

  • Conn 12M Transitional Art Deco Engraved Original Silver Plate Baritone

    $ 8,000

    Freshly overhauled Mulligan-era original silver plated Art-deco engraved Conn transitional 12M baritone in great shape. This horn just had a high end overhaul, and it feels like a new horn under the fingers. It has the rare art deco engraving, and it looks gorgeous. It has had several posts resoldered, as you can see, which was part of the overhaul, and done to make it really sturdy and ready for its next 80 years of playing. This horn is just effortless to play, and it sounds warm and full and extremely pleasant. Conns almost feel like a tenor to hold and play, weight wise, which makes them extra fun for the pro bari player. Plus nothing sounds like a Conn 12M. This is fully a 12M in terms of keywork and features, with same side bell keys, X brace and 12M stack and palm keys. These are super hard to find in good shape. I’ve been watching beat up 12M’s needing a $2k overhaul selling over $6k on eBay, so this rare art deco version from the best serial range and already overhauled is definitely a great deal. It will only go up in value. This is the baritone to have.

  • Conn 12M Transitional Baritone Saxophone 250510 Relacquer Great Player! Mulligan Serial

    $ 4,750

    This is a great Conn 12M Transitional baritone saxophone that comes to you out of the collection of Theo Wanne. I got it from Theo on trade, and it is a fantastic horn. Yes, the lacquer isn’t original, but then again, I haven’t seen a Conn bari this early that was original, fwiw. It had a recent overhaul, and I spent another $500 on it to do a very extensive setup, almost a mini-overhaul. It feels super great now and plays effortlessly with the velvety warmth that you associate with Mulligan, Carney, and the others who played Conns of this vintage. Mulligan made these baritones famous, and alternated between his 189k NWII, and his 250k or so transitional 12M. “Transitional’ usually means that this isn’t the final version of the 12M, but in the case of the baritones, there wasn’t any major keywork change that happened after this model. So this IS a 12M, except that I think the early ones from ’32-33 play with a bigger sound, more like a New Wonder II, but with better keywork and easier tuning. If you just can’t live without a front F mechanism, then you can actually get one put on this horn, and I can help you get it done. But it’s not like that’s a necessity for the vast majority of vintage bari players.

    One final thing to mention about this, besides that it’s the best-sounding model of baritone ever made, is that it’s super light to play. It feels almost like a tenor sax in your hands and on your shoulders. I need to weigh it beside a low A Yamaha, but it’s a LOT lighter. This is a great deal at this price, because you get the best serial range bari, with good pads and a fresh setup, needing nothing, for a bargain price just because it had the lacquer redone, and it’s been played enough to have some resolders etc. (Check the photos on full screen mode, and/or email me for a blow by blow description of every little ding if you want.)

    $ 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.  

  • Conn New Wonder 1 C soprano 136795 Excellent Condition Original Silver Plate RARE

    $ 1,350

    Price just reduced 4/19/21! This is an excellent deal on a beautiful Conn C soprano in original silver plate. This is on consignment from a serious Conn collector who has excellent taste in saxophones! It almost looks new, the original silver plate is in such good shape. There are at least a few nice vintage Bb Conn sopranos out there, but a C soprano is at least 5x as rare. You don’t see these available often at all. And this one is about as nice as they come! You’ll want to get it repadded if you’re going to be playing it seriously. It currently is in a Bb soprano case, as we didn’t get a C soprano case with it. It certainly has plenty of padding, though you have a little extra room at the end of the case for extra storage.

  • Conn New Wonder II Tenor Original Gold Plate Recent Overhaul 1929 228150

    $ 3,250

    Price Reduced July 21 2021! Get it while it’s available!

    This is a desirable late example of a Conn New Wonder II Tenor Saxophone ‘Chu Berry’ in original gold plate! Gold plated Conns are the hardest to find of all the finishes, and they are the favorites of many players and collectors all over the world. The 11 Karat ‘coin gold’ used on Conns like this is a harder alloy, lighter in color, and is a durable finish that looks gorgeous and takes a long time to tarnish. This horn has some lacquer over the gold to protect it in some places. It would shine up and look more even with the lacquer removed, but it’s on consignment, and I’m not authorized to get that done at the moment. You could have it done for $200 by a repairman and the horn would go up a couple of notches in cosmetic condition. It has been played a lot, as you can see – wear on the touch points, some key guards and posts resoldered from popping off over time. This happens on 80 year old instruments, and its no big deal. There’s nothing major to report repair wise, except that the neck on this horn is from a New Wonder 1 Im’m told. Conn necks aren’t numbered or marked, so it’s not like you can really tell, but the gold is a slightly different look in person. The neck plays great! The NW1 necks sometimes feel a little wider and wilder to play than the NWII’s, and this horn has that wide, room-filling quality to it for sure.

    This gold NWII tenor had a complete high end overhaul in the last couple of years, and it plays great on it! It resonates throughout the whole body tube, and it feels ‘dry’ and snappy under the fingers, like a Conn should when overhauled properly. An overhaul like that costs a lot of money, and you’re getting it nearly for free at this price, so this should be an excellent deal for someone! I mean, for the price of a new ‘name brand’ Chinese horn at Sam Ash, you can get one of the best tenors ever WITH a top shelf overhaul, in actual gold plate.

  • Conn NW1 C Melody Straight Neck Burnished Gold Portrait Engraving 76817

    $ 999

    Wow! This is a beautiful, nearly 100% gold PLATED Conn C melody saxophone. People are always confused about this, but this is very thick, actual gold on this saxophone, not lacquered brass finish. And the burnished gold is thicker than regular gold plate as well. Conn reserved this finish for a select few special-ordered instruments that were given the best, most beautiful, most durable finish that Conn offered. These also got a ‘portrait’ or some kind of special engraved scene. This one seems to fall into the mythology category, and shows maybe a wind god? Apollo was a popular portrait theme, as the god of music, but this may be Zephyrus, the god of Wind. Almost looks like a Loki variant, with the horns 😉

    This C melody has the more desirable straight neck that plays better, and it has rolled tone holes. It has original factory pads, that are nearly 100 years old, so definitely plan on getting this cleaned up and repadded. The gold is basically totally intact, so it will look like new again with a gentle hand polish. It’s hard to communicate just how beautiful these instruments are when they’re polished up. Even with 100 years of tarnish, it’s a beauty. With the GS RESO C Melody mouthpiece, Conn c melody saxophones sound way better – basically a tenor type tone but in concert pitch. Check out our C melody / RESO sound clip here.

  • Conn NWII / 14M Bass Saxophone Original CASE Fully Restored

    $ 1,100

    I spent $500+ getting this rare original Conn bass sax case restored, and it’s in really great condition now! Fresh shell reinforcement and repair, internal padding and fabric, added latch, new handle, fresh coat of paint, and case feet. I am tempted to keep it for when I eventually find a nice later Conn bass. NOTE: This case ONLY fits the ‘plumber neck’ version NWII/14M, NOT the NW1 and earlier Conn bass with a neck that looks like a bari sax.

    Conn Standard Steelay 5 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece D69

    $ 95

    Complete your set with a Conn 10M tenor from the 30’s or 40’s. Deep scooped sidewalls, very large chamber, no baffle. Tip opening measures 0.058″. This tip opening is pretty limiting in terms of flexibility and projection. High resistance, very dark tone.

  • Conn Transitional NWII 10M Tenor Fresh Overhaul Great Deal!

    $ 3,150

    This is a great deal on one of those special ‘transitional’ Conn tenor saxophones that have a huge following. They combine the huge sound of a New Wonder II with some of the ergonomic and tuning improvements of a 10M, and they are also pretty hard to find in good shape. This one is NICE. It’s relacquered, but it looks like it was done just to make the horn look great again, and not to deal with underlying mechanical problems. That’s the kind of relacquer you want. Doesn’t do much of anything to the sound in my experience. The basic condition of the horn is more important than the new coat of paint, and this one is beautiful! It also has a fresh overhaul done by Erick Wistreich at Meridian Winds in Michigan, which is a speciality woodwind shop with decades of experience.

    The tone is big, warm, medium dark, and pretty spread. Nothing plays like a Conn – it’s hard to put in words the actual experience of playing one – the vibration of the horn under your fingers as the body tube comes alive – the wideness of the sound – the effortless way that you get a velvety smooth tone that fills a room. That’s why folks keep coming back to these. Once you play one, you’re hooked. I play a 10M with the GS SLANT 7* on tenor, and I sound a lot better than I deserve to. It’s a really excellent combination.

    So here, for a bargain price, you get one of the best Conns ever, plus a fresh overhaul, and the horn is also beautiful because of the carefully done refinish. That’s really pretty good.

  • GS SLANT Otto Link Florida Slant Signature Tone Edge Replica Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece

    $ 199

    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.

    Ishimori Wood Stone ‘New Vintage’ Tenor Saxophone Antique Finish Bare Brass Brand New!

    $ 4,750

    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!

It sports both solid silver neck and solid silver bell with gold wash inside. These horns are hard to beat, and they are definitely undervalued at the moment! Early Eastlake (or late Cleveland) tenors like this with single socket neck are many people’s favorite version, who are looking for a beautiful vintage King with silver bell and great build quality that doesn’t cost as much as a new car. Only one available. These always sell quickly. It will come in a new BAM case for maximum protection, or if you want to buy a vintage King alligator style black and silver case, I could sell you one from my little case collection for extra.

    King Soprano Saxophone Gold Plate Fresh Overhaul Amazing! 99847

    $ 3,250

    Just freshly overhauled!! This got a full restoration, so it’s back to like new mechanical condition.This is the vintage soprano you should get!

    This amazing gold plated King soprano saxophone will blow the walls down. It is in excellent condition, with nearly all the original gold plate intact. It has just received a full overhaul and restoration, which is not a small job on a 90 year old instrument. It is now back in like-new playing condition and ready to make music for many many years to come.

    King sopranos are rare, and were only made in low pitch (regular concert pitch). They tune nicely, and have a big, warm, medium-focused tone that is less polite sounding than a Buescher, and really fills a room with ease. This example in gold plate and in such amazingly good condition is extremely rare. The great depression in 1929 spelled the end of most of the saxophone market, and marked the end of most makers building sopranos in any kind of quantities. So it’s not surprising that you don’t see a King soprano later than this serial. This is one of the very last ones made, and the latest serial I have seen. The later the better is my motto on vintage sopranos generally speaking, so getting a late one also in gold plate is really exceptional.

Nothing else sounds like a good Super 20 alto! This one is already all overhauled and setup to perfection. You can just play it and not worry that you’re missing out. The Super 20 is as good as it gets on alto for a great jazz tone. Pair it with a Meyer 5 or 6 and a pretty soft reed for the Cannonball Adderley style tone (and practice a lot).

  • Martin Centennial Alto Saxophone

    $ 2,250
  • Martin Comm III The Martin Tenor Fresh Overhaul Nice Shape

    $ 2,450

    This The Martin Tenor just got a full overhaul done by Peter Lamb at Flying Squirrel Music in Raleigh, NC. The pad work feels nice and snappy, and the horn is totally overhauled and ready to go! The price is on the low side for an overhauled Martin because the lacquer is a factory refinish. It looks original, but there’s just a tiny bit of buffing evident around the bow area to show that it’s a redo. This should make virtually no difference on this particular horn to how it plays, because it was obviously done just for some type A person to have a tiny scratch removed or something. Back in the day, that’s how it would work. You’d get the horn refinished at the factory and repadded for a very low price, to get it back looking totally great.

    And it does look great! The engraving is nice and sharp, the lacquer is dark honey colored, nitrocellulose of the vintage type. It’s just like an original Martin, only you save maybe $1250 on the price for the new coat of paint! That’s a great deal.

    The main reason to buy a The Martin Tenor is the tone. These horns are POWERFUL, medium dark, with lots of projection. They’re built for volume, and do great on rock, blues, R&B, smooth jazz, or really anything you like. The tone stays full in the upper register and doesn’t thin out or go nasal at all, like some horns do. The design is also really nice on these, with curves and key work angles all unified to make a classic looking saxophone. Reminds me of a 50’s Chevy or something.

  • NOVA Woodwinds Lacquered Brass Low A Baritone Saxophone NEW Great Deal!

    $ 2,300

    Introducing the new NOVA Woodwinds line of instruments. The NOVA Woodwinds line meets a need in the marketplace for a lower-priced Low A Baritone saxophone that is still good quality. People have been asking me for years if I can recommend anything in the sub-$3500 price range for a low A baritone.There’s nothing much to recommend USED let alone new. That’s where the NOVA baritone shines. For only $2300, you get a NOVA baritone (NOVA means ‘new’ in Latin) that is brand new and plays quite well, and that holds up well over time by all accounts.

    If you are shopping for a baritone saxophone, whether for a school band program, for doubling and taking extra gigs on bari, or just for playing some sick funk lines with your Tower of Power cover band, this horn is worth a look. I have friends who have used this bari in their band programs for years, and it holds up to punishment by middle and high school students quite well. That’s saying a lot!

    Much of the reason it holds up well is that I am spending $400-500 per horn on an extensive amount of setup work. It’s almost an overhaul, because it’s fully disassembled, cleaned, oiled, gets all new corks, gets rods straightened, many pads reseated or replaced, the LH pinky table rebuilt, the neck tenon ‘fit’ to the receiver, regulation between keys fixed, and actually several other small things improved. At that point, its a completely different instrument from how it arrives. It plays down to low A easily and well and should continue to do so for a long time with only occasional upkeep needed. As such, it’s a solid school bari, doubler’s bari, or just a fun horn to play around on.

    You could set it up and sell it doing MUCH less work – $50 to get pads sealing and send it out the door, but that would not be the way to build a good reputation for your brand, or to take good care of your customers, over even the short term. I want the NOVA line to stand out as the most reliable baritone saxophone you can get new under $2500. Unfortunately, after I buy the horn, pay for international shipping and spend $450 per horn on repair, there’s very little profit to be made on these. Thankfully, this is not a large part of the overall business here at GetASax.

    Once it’s properly ‘mini-overhauled’, the tone is big, loud, and medium between bright and dark. It tunes well with a variety of mouthpieces. The keywork is pretty comfortable, and works fine for anyone from middle school up through adult. The stacks are actually in line, not offset, meaning the tone holes are all in one long row. That changes the feel of the right hand, as you rotate around farther than you otherwise would on a modern horn. This is NOT a Yanagisawa copy. From neck to bell to keywork, it’s really not similar to a B901. The case is usable, with a hard foam contoured interior, sturdy zipper, decent amount of storage, and wheels that are usable on a smooth surface. The mouthpiece it comes with isn’t great, so see below about cheap but good mouthpieces.

    It comes in this version, which is brass, and then in the bronze version also. The bronze is a slightly darker tone, and gives you the two tone look, where the all brass like this just looks like a typical new saxophone. You won’t go wrong with either one. Both of them include the pictured hard case which has wheels, as well as the other accessories in the photos. I would recommend a Yamaha 5C or Rousseau for an inexpensive beginner baritone mouthpiece for concert band, and the Rico Metalite bari for jazz, or there are lots of other options getting listed in the baritone mouthpieces section of the site. 

    These low A baritone saxophones tend to sell quickly, so please let me know if you are wanting to order more than one, so that I can be sure to order them far enough in advance to fill your order quickly.

  • Otto Link Tone Edge Small USA Large Font 7 EB? Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC525

    $ 600

    This is a beautiful example of an Otto Link Tone Edge soprano mouthpiece. It has its original 7 facing measuring .062″ or so. The 7 stamp is the larger font, and the USA stamp is small font like a FL Tone Edge. The Otto Link logo and chains are not the modern version, and neither is the shank design, and the machine marks on the table are a fine vertical denim pattern. The chamber is large and round. It plays beautifully with a warm, rich tone. I guess this would be an Early Babbitt at least early 80’s. I have to admit, I’m not an expert on the differences between soprano stamping in the 70’s to early 80’s on these. But it looks better than smaller tip ones I see selling online for $800, so hopefully this is a good deal for somebody. It also includes the Vandoren Optimum ligature in the photos.

    This is a hard rubber version of the Ponzol M1 tenor saxophone mouthpiece. It has high baffle, metal mouthpiece proportions. If you like the streamlined proportions of metal and easy on the teeth compliance of hard rubber, this this may be your piece. It has straight sidewalls, small chamber, and a high stepped baffle. Tip opening measures 0.115″. The high baffle does not disappoint with projection and brightness, but it is also surprisingly easy to lay back and get a slightly darker tone. It would be a nice all around mouthpiece in the right setting, like a combo with electric guitar for example, where you want a cool tone with the option to cut through when needed. If you’ve been playing a Berg and want something slightly brighter, this would do the trick.

    On Trial June 2021

    First year Mark VI that came in with original pads! I got it overhauled, cleaned up, and ready for its next 67 years of playing time. This was a one owner horn, owned by a good player in NYC who played it seriously for several years in the 50’s and studied with Joe Allard, before putting it in the closet for the next 55 years until now. We gave it the full treatment, and it’s really beautiful, with a focused, lyrical, medium dark, powerful tone. This is a rare chance to get a first year VI with original lacquer that is just great.

    $ 8,350

    Beautiful original lacquer Selmer Mark VI Tenor saxophone from 1968. It is in very good condition with no dents or dings. The neck is in great shape, as is the bell flare and bow. The only repair I see is a nearly invisble one to the octave lever arm at the top of the body tube. (Got a bit damaged from the way it lays in the case, but the fix is superb.) It’s uncommon to find such a beautiful example of a Selmer Mark VI tenor, and this one also comes with the rare high F# key option also included. This Mark VI is priced on the low side for quick sale. It still plays surprisingly well on the mostly original factory pads! If you’re going to play it a lot, you should plan on getting it repadded before too long, though I have known folks to stretch the original pad life a surprisingly long way!

    The tone is medium between bright and dark. Not too dark, not too bright. It has a focused, lyrical core and is nice and free blowing. The later VI’s like in the 200k serial range tend to be more bright and bold playing, where the 150-160k’s are more balanced and ‘just right’ tonally. If you’re looking for a gorgeous Mark VI that sounds great, looks great, and has all the bells and whistles, and that has no hidden problems or concerns, this would be a prime example to consider. For what you get, it’s priced quite low in comparison to other similar horns that I see around. And these are only going up in value.

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1963 Worn Original Lacquer

    $ 6,500

    Low price for this worn original lacquer 1963 Mark VI Tenor. This horn is on consignment for a great local player who played it constantly for the past 35+ years. It was his main horn all that time, and hence, has been played a ton. It’s still sealing on the older pads, and it plays great, but it’s not freshly overhauled and does not have tight, new feeling keywork by any means. The neck is also not original, and lacks the matching serial number though it is a Mark VI neck, and it plays great with the horn. This sax will be a dependably great player if you get it overhauled and play it for the next 35 years. It has a medium dark, focused, moderately powerful tone, and nice free blowing feel. It’s rare to find an original early 60’s VI that plays great for this sort of price. If you don’t mind the older pads and the neck, then you’re in business. I like the look of it. It’s well used, because it’s fun to play.
