    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!

  • Conn Transitional NWII / 10M Tenor 1930 New Keywork 243217 Fresh Overhaul!

    $ 5,950

    Unlacquered 1930 Conn transitional tenor which has had modern keywork painstakingly fit to the old body tube. This is my favorite vintage of Conn for tone. If you’ve ever wanted a Conn tone without sacrificing key feel to play the 30’s keywork, this is one of those rare chances to do it. The horn is also gorgeous. I like that they picked a really clean, beautiful example to use as the shell for the overhaul.

    Keywork was fitted by a shop in Canada, and then the horn was thoroughly setup (basically overhauled ~$1650) and perfected by Aaron Barnard in Iowa. It plays GREAT!

    Dukoff Hollywood Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece 7* Refaced from 5* Great! MPC610

    $ 1,450

    This is a beautiful vintage Dukoff Hollywood from my personal collection. It’s fat and powerful, but on the darker side, with a mild rollover baffle and medium-large chamber. This is the one piece version with higher floor but less rollover baffle. It plays great, with more projection than average since it was opened up. This was originally a 5* and was opened to a 7*, measuring .105″. I’m not sure who did the work, as it is unsigned, but from how clean and tidy it is, I’m guessing either Theo or maybe Jon Van Wie, both of whom didn’t always sign their pieces back in the day. That tip and baffle work is top-notch. This is a world-class tenor piece that should make someone very happy.

  • Dukoff Miami Orig. Large Chamber LD6 .098″ metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC588

    $ 575

    Slightly curved sidewalls, medium-large chamber, long rollover baffle. If you love the attack and projection of a Super Power Chamber but want a little beefier tone this might be the piece for you. I think Dukoff designed this to be like a Hollywood on steroids. It is still bright, but not glass shattering. Very free blowing. Tip opening measures 0.098″.

    Dukoff Miami SPC D5 (modern 6) Silverite Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC606

    $ 350

    This Miami Dukoff D5 alto saxophone mouthpiece measures .076, so like a Meyer 6 tip. The rails have some dings in them, but it still plays fine. I could clean it up pre-sale. Up to you. If you want a bright, cutting, smooth jazz/commercial alto sound, this will do the trick. I’m trying to make it through the description without mentioning a certain player. Looks like I succeeded. Straight sidewalls, small-medium chamber, and high stepped baffle, tip opening measures 0.076″. The super power chamber is truth in advertising. Awesome projection, low resistance, bright tone.

    Dukoff Miami Super Power Chamber D5* plastic Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC575

    $ 350

    Small chamber, straight sidewalls, stepped baffle. This piece is easier to play sweetly at low volume than the typical metal body and larger tip openings found in this chamber and baffle configuration, but can still scream at higher volumes. A nice flexible piece for R&B or smooth playing. Tip opening measures 0.067″.

  • Dukoff Miami Super Power Chamber M7 metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC589

    $ 500

    Straight sidewalls, medium chamber, and a unique baffle that is similar to a high stepped baffle but with a large rollover-like radius where the step would be. Tonally this retains the projection and attack of a high baffle but is maybe slightly darker than a super-bright SPC “D” chamber. Tip opening measures 0.105″.

  • Dukoff Miami Super Power Chamber M7 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC594

    $ 400

    Straight sidewalls, medium chamber, and a high baffle with a large radius rollover at the entrance to the chamber. You don’t see the Miami M chamber that often. Those ligature scratches could be buffed off if you want. This is a very free-blowing piece with great projection. It is bright, but not paint peeling bright like the more common D7 chamber. I would consider this if you like your Link STM but want something that cuts through an amplified mix a little easier. Tip opening measures a comfortable 0.103″.

  • 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 Baritone Ligature Slim, Mouthpieces For Berg Larsen, RPC, Meyer and Similar Hard Rubber

    $ 165

    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

    This piece is clean, balanced, effortless to play, including low register and altissimo, with a medium chamber and a moderate baffle that gives it moderate brightness without getting brittle or nasal. It’s a great all-purpose tenor mouthpiece with a modern sound.

    *Demo videos and detailed info below with the GS Mark II on a Selmer Mark VI, Conn 30M, and King Super 20. 

    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 ten years ago, no more of these are available.

    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.

    The Mark II is bright and projecting but not too bright, and it seems to be one of the most popular ones of these. The chamber is medium rather than large, which adds to the projection. The shank is long, so you can pull out on vintage horns. The Mark II sounds great on Selmers and on modern tenors like Yamaha and P Mauriat. It gives them a lot of extra character and complexity.

    The Mark II is nothing like an Otto Link, so if you’re wanting a Link-on-steriods or whatever, checkout the upcoming GS SUPERSONIC, which does just that sort of thing. The Mark II is a different beast, all its own thing.

    And for only $199 including hand facing, I hope that lots of players can enjoy this amazing and rare mouthpiece! It’s hard to beat.

  • GS NEW YORK Alto

    GS NEW YORK Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece – The Best Meyer

    $ 199

    GS NEW YORK Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece Meyer Bros NY Replica

    A great New York Meyer alto mouthpiece 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.

    The GS NEW YORK is an extremely precise copy of what I think is the best Meyer Bros NY I’ve played. I’ve been collecting NY Meyer alto pieces since I started GetASax, and I just LOVE this particular one.

    I loved it so much, that I spent about a year figuring out how to make an extremely precise copy of it that played with the same magic in each tip opening.

    The GS New York delivers on that goal! People just love to play this mouthpiece. The reviews and emails I receive have been so encouraging to keep this going long-term.

    How does it play? It’s slightly brighter than some NY Meyers, and a little warmer than a NYUSA. Balanced and easy low register and altissimo. Compared to a typical modern Meyer the GS NY will be much more free blowing, less resistant, and will have better projection and sparkle. You can get a Cannonball / Phil Woods vibe going with less effort than on a typical modern Meyer for sure.

    You won’t pick a bad tip opening. They’re all great. People buy the 5 (.072″) , 6 (.076″), and 7 (.080″) tips about equally often.

    People getting their first jazz mouthpiece often ask what to get. I would say, if you’re coming from a Yamaha 4C or S80 C*, get the GS New York 5 tip and try it with a Rigotti 2.5 strong, La Voz medium, D’Addario Select Jazz 3S etc. Or if you struggle with reeds, try a Fibracell Premier 2.5 or 3 for a synthetic reed that doesn’t swell and has a tip profile that fits the GS NY tip shape well.

    Each GS New York is carefully hand faced, including flattening the table, and measuring the facing curve at ten points plus the tip, so you can be sure that the one you get will be just as good as the one that I play personally. If I make a mistake in facing, that mouthpiece doesn’t get sold. Every one that goes out the door measures just how it should. Since the table is flat, consider scraping your reed after soaking for the best results. That one tip changes lots of players’ lives, so I thought I’d highlight it here.

    Due to high demand, I’ve been about a week behind on hand facing lately. But I’ll ship your mouthpiece quickly to make up for that.

  • GS SLANT Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece – Classic, Balanced, Beautiful

    $ 199

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

    If you’re wanting a classic, all-purpose tenor mouthpiece for jazz, it’s hard to beat the GS SLANT. If you’re a new jazz player coming from a Yamaha 4C or S80 C*, and you don’t want to completely change your embouchure, consider the SLANT in a 5* or 6 tip. It’s a great way to get into jazz tenor tone without feeling out of control. If you’re used to a larger tip, and you’re not sure what to get, it’s hard to go wrong with the SLANT 7*. We have lots of SLANT videos with HiFi audio on the GetASax Youtube channel.

    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 about 1/10th the cost of a comparable 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 too bright), and more focused (though still warm and full). It has an instantly recognizable 50’s-60’s jazz tenor tone. 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.

  • GS Supersonic Tenor 50’s Dukoff – Bright, Projecting, Funky

    $ 199

    Bright, projecting, funky vintage 1950’s Dukoff copy that is like an Early Babbitt Link but more fun and better sounding. The GS Supersonic tenor is an early 50’s Dukoff hard rubber piece sold under the Zimberoff House of Note brand. It is my favorite bright vintage mouthpiece – it has a more complex tone than modern ‘bright’ pieces that tend to have a big step baffle don’t sound good soft or subtoning. The Supersonic is beautiful in subtone and stays warm while cutting through. It’s more sophisticated than an Early Babbitt Link, and it sounds similar but (to me) better in every way. (People keep asking why we didn’t do an EB copy – this is why.)

    Most people will never get to play an original Zimberoff Supersonic, because they are rare and expensive, and most people who have one won’t sell it. I’ve been collecting them for 15 years, and the GS Supersonic is an extremely precise copy of my best one, which is an original 7 tip (CV Special facing). It’s a very special piece, and one of the best tenor mouthpieces I’ve played.

    This is for people who want to cut through a band (ideal for wedding bands etc), to brighten up a dark saxophone’s tone (I’m looking at you, Keilwerth), or just to scream, but without getting too shrill. If you’re in high school or college band, this makes pep band a lot more fun too on sax, because you can actually be heard rather than completely swamped by the brass.

    About facings:

    Short answer – All the facings are good. The 7 CV and the regular 7 both have the same facing. Just the CV mouthpiece itself (not facing) is about 1/2″ shorter on the shank end. If you play a GS Slant, Mark II, or Reso, the 6, 7*, 8 and 9 facings will be almost identical and will feel very familiar. The 7 facing is a little different since it copies the CV Special, but it is actually very similar to my regular 7 facing as well.

    Long answer:
    You can get a precise copy of the original piece by selecting the 7 CV version which is a shorter mouthpiece and has Charlie Ventura’s favorite 7 facing. The Dukoff Supersonic is a pretty short mouthpiece (in overall length) compared to most other hard rubber tenor pieces. On all of the other versions we offer besides CV Special, the mouthpiece you get will be longer than the original. We found that the piece plays the best if we match the overall mouthpiece length of a metal Zimberoff Dukoff / Dukoff Hollywood, which makes the mouthpiece tune well on modern horns like Yamaha, even if you have a very firm embouchure. Both pieces have identical chamber, baffle, tip and everything. Just the ‘default/recommended’ version is a longer mouthpiece overall.

    Guardala Handmade Tenor New Old Stock Traditional / MB1 Unsigned MPC1440

    From a mouthpiece collection come two handmade Guardala tenor mouthpieces in new old stock condition. Both are unengraved/numbered. I talked to Jennifer Price, who helped make the handmade Guardalas along with Dave, and she confirmed that these look like actual handmade Guardalas, and she said that she had seen a few others like these in the past. They’re still expensive because they’re handmade Guardala mouthpieces in new old stock condition, but they’re priced at about half of what the going rate seems to be for similar condition signed ones, because they are unsigned. I’m not the world’s most geeky Guardala nerd, but from the ones I have seen over the years, and from the information I can find online for comparison– thanks Steve Neff etc–  (and comparing to the notes on the original Guardala product descriptions)  one looks like the original Traditional which got renamed to MB1 later. Plays beautifully.

    Ishimori New Vintage Soprano Gold Lacquer Two Necks New

    Original price was: $ 4,500.Current price is: $ 4,000.

    The Ishimori New Vintage professional soprano saxophone is an extremely well put together and easy to play modern soprano that most people have never played. The Ishimori New Vintage soprano saxophone (notice, I’m using the name a few times for the sake of the search engines) is well worth consideration when you’re considering buying a modern soprano, because it is top quality, but costs quite a bit less than a pro Yamaha or Selmer soprano, and it doesn’t sound like all the other sopranos either. It tunes well, feels good under the fingers, and comes with straight and curved necks, nice engraving, and beautiful gold lacquer. It’s overhauled by Ishimori in Japan, and comes with an excellent setup. I’ve bought Ishimori saxophones like this that had been played heavily for 5-7 years and were still sealing perfectly and feeling like a new horn under the fingers. There are not many brands today that you could say that about. The tone is more wide than a Selmer, and more complex than a Yanagisawa. Brighter than a Keilwerth, but darker than Selmer and Yanagisawa. It is most similar to a Selmer in tone, and that is probably on purpose, but the tuning and keywork are better than, say a Selmer Series III soprano, and the setup is way better (Sorry Selmer, I keep telling you to fix the same old pad work issues on your modern horns…). So if you want a nice do-it-all soprano for less than a Yamaha/Yanagisawa, and you want a Selmer-like tone but none of the Selmer setup issues, then the Ishimori New Vintage Professional Soprano saxophone (;-) might be just the thing!

    This is the highly sought-after Ishimori Wood Stone ‘New Vintage’ alto saxophone available. The model is WSA-AF with high F#. Finish is bare brass with a stable patina applied, and beautiful hand engraving, the among the most elaborate of any modern saxophone. Really beautiful!

    This is an effortless player. Hard to emphasize how effortless. Completely effortless low register, low Bb pops out like any other note. Altissimo is easy. Tuning is great. 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. Great for jazz, concert, ballads– really anything. I’m impressed! Here’s our first demo video:

    Back in stock May 2024!  These are hard to keep in stock, but I will do my best to keep one around. Every Ishimori saxophone gets a new horn checkup, to make sure that it’s in perfect playing condition before it ships to you!

    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!

    See below for our videos on the Ishimori New Vintage Tenor featuring some sound samples on a range of mouthpieces, and an unboxing video.

  • Keilwerth SX-90R Professional Alto Original Lacquer Near Mint! Overhauled! 114902

    $ 4,250

    Huge sounding Keilwerth SX-90R professional alto saxophone for sale. This one is in fantastic condition. It just got a complete overhaul done on it, including Pisoni Italian leather pads, slightly domed metal resonators, and a full setup to play better than new. These altos are among the best in the world with a dark, wide, powerful tone that works well for anything from classical to commercial music depending on mouthpiece choice. Grover Washington Jr. played one of these, and his signature fat tone comes partly from his choice of Keilwerth. Keilwerth has kept the wider bore, vintage Conn style tone going into modern times, while also building pro saxes at the highest level. You don’t see them in the USA as much because of the goofy distributor markup that makes them too expensive here, but if they cost here what they do in Europe, everybody would be playing them.

    This one has a better overhaul than a brand new horn, and it feels great under the fingers and looks almost new, with only some light lacquer wear in places. Only one available!

    King SilverSonic Alto Near Mint with Gold in the Engraving – Early Series III 358843

    $ 9,000

    This is the nicest King Series III SilverSonic alto that I have seen, and it’s also the earliest serial one that I’ve seen in person. If you’re into Kings, then you already know what this is, but if you’re not, then in my opinion, this is the second best version, and to many players, this is the best version. The Series II Super 20 is what Cannonball played on Kind of Blue and Somethin’ Else, before switching to one of these after the new ones came out (he went through several horns over the course of his career). The Series II has the ‘full pearls’ on side keys etc, and the Series III lacks the extra pearl key touches, but it gains much more modern feeling keywork in exchange, while keeping the full, rich King tone of the Series II. The ones like this, made shortly after the end of the Series II (which ends around 343k serial), have a little warmer tone than the later Series III horns, more like the Series II, in my opinion. That makes this something of a unicorn – excellent to near mint condition, original factory pads and setup still intact like a time capsule. Double socket solid silver neck in perfect shape. No dents or dings. No past repairs. Solid silver bell with the thick decorative gold in the engraving, which makes this extra rare. All in all, hard to beat. You’d need to get it overhauled. I’d be open to using one of my reserved spots with Matt Stohrer to get this overhauled for you, if you wanted to get Matt to do it for you. He overhauled my personal King alto, and it’s just fantastic. His work on these feels like the King factory just finished building the horn for you. If this suddenly disappears from the site, it’s because I decided to keep it. These altos are really hard to beat, and among the best ever made.

  • King SilverSonic Tenor Solid Silver Neck and Bell 433140 Very Good Condition

    $ 4,950

    This is a very early Eastlake King Super 20 SilverSonic tenor saxophone with solid silver neck and solid silver bell. It plays reasonably well on older pads and comes with the original case in good condition. Many players love the early Eastlakes for their huge, powerful tone and comfortable keywork. They’re also priced a lot lower than a typical Cleveland SilverSonic (despite the early Eastlakes being the exact same horn). If you want to get into a beautiful vintage professional King Silversonic tenor that doesn’t break the bank, this would be an excellent option.

  • King SilverSonic Tenor With Full Pearls 1952 Relacquered Nice Shape! 328630

    $ 11,500

    This is one of the 200 or so King ‘Full Pearls SilverSonics’ that were made (or Full Pearled SilverSonics if that’s how you learned it). This is a ‘Series II’ Full Pearls, which is the version with the later and more desirable keywork. This is the first one of these I have had for sale on the website in many years, and it is in quite good condition. It has been relacquered, and there were some dings removed before the new coat of lacquer, so you can see some waviness in the reflections around the bow area in a few places, but it’s nothing serious. The horn looks original on first inspection, because it has seen minimal buffing and the engraving is still very sharp, even on the bell key cups, which tend to be buffed harder than the bell engraving. The bell engraving almost looks untouched, and the little bit of gold missing from years of use could be restored if you want (I can point you in the right direction and arrange things for you in that case.) But I would leave it as is, as it looks great already. The pads are older, so it’s time for your favorite saxophone repairer to get this horn back to blowing the walls down again. These horns are kind of the ultimate saxophone collectible because they have both qualities that usually are mutually exclusive – they’re the best version of the Super 20 that King made, and they’re also ridiculously rare at the same time. In the early 50’s King was focused on selling brass bell Super 20 saxophones, and it seems you had to know somebody to get them to make you a SilverSonic, so it rarely happened. I don’t know of any other example of a saxophone that is the best of its class and similarly rare. The Conn saxophones in F are rare and are fun to play, but they’re not like THE best saxophone Conn ever made (that would be the rolled tone holes 10M/30M). The Mark VI C melody is similarly rare, but also not the best C melody ever made, nor particularly outstanding just in itself. But these Series II King Full Pearls Silversonics should please the person who wants both a really rare, collectible investment sort of saxophone, and the person who wants a great playing horn. Anyway, to get back to this horn, it has the original case in nice shape, and the original solid silver neck with matching serial number, also in excellent condition. Also on the website at the moment is the most perfect brass bell Series II Super 20 tenor I’ve seen. If either of these rare Kings drops of the site suddenly, it’s because I ended up being able to afford to keep them. Until then…
