  • Tenor Hard Rubber BB Screws Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Saxophone Mouthpieces Otto Link Slant Selmer Soloist

    $ 165

    For hard rubber tenor saxophone mouthpieces like Otto Link Tone Edge, Otto Link Reso Chamber. All Link Slant tenor copies and reproductions, and almost all modern hard rubber tenor mouthpieces will fit great with this ligature. It has long screws to fit a slim hard modern Vandoren or Selmer Soloist, all the way up to large body vintage tenor piece like a Conn Steelay, or the larger NY Meyers, Woodwind Co NY, or Hard Rubber Brilharts. The all-metal design is more labor intensive to build, with a lot of careful silver soldering going into the production. The brass is high quality and supple. The BB screws tighten easily.

    **Out of the box, the ligature is adjusted to fit a larger body mouthpiece like an Otto Link Tone Edge. For a slimmer mouthpiece, simply put the ligature on your mouthpiece, tighten the screws, and then press hard to bend the reed plate a little closer to the table.

    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.

  • Tenor Hard Rubber Brilhart 3-Band Reproduction Ligature Echo Brass

    $ 165

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

  • Theo Wanne MOKSHA Tenor Rare and Super Deluxe Mantra – Fully Engraved 20002

    $ 3,850

    Theo Wanne Moksha tenor made mostly of titanium! This was an exciting new model that Theo Wanne designed and was having manufactured, but it was too expensive to be marketable. The matching alto and tenor final prototypes were sold by Theo as one offs, and they’re on consignment here for the original owner. These have brass keys, titanium bell and body tube, and lots of engraving. They also have ‘tone bridges’ that you can install or leave off as you like, that give an extra connection between neck and body tube, tube and bow etc.

    Woodwind Co K4* (Actually 7) .100″ EG Reface Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece Great! MPC952

    $ 225

    This is like a vintage Reso Chamber or Slant (more like a Slant) also made of the same great old hard rubber (steel ebonite they called it), and then refaced by the great Erik Greiffenhagen. Erik did a tidy looking Link style baffle on this one that gives you a combination of warmth and projection that you normally have to buy a $1000+ Link to get. This is a great deal if you want something like the GS RESO/SLANT but black. It had a tiny shank crack, so I banded it with a metal band using half of a ligature. Should last forever that way. Price reduced as a result.

  • Yamaha YAS-23 Alto Fresh Full Overhaul – Best First Alto Excellent Condition 378879

    $ 1,450

    Who spends $1000 to overhaul a YAS-23 and sells it for a $50 profit? GetASax, that’s who.

    Almost every good saxophonist I know started off playing a YAS-23. There’s something about the way these horns are designed and put together that just makes them PLAY. If you ever get a chance to play an overhauled 23 alto, don’t turn up your nose. They are great horns. Lively, projecting, in tune, comfortable under the fingers and built like a tank but without being heavy. No wonder they’re the horn everyone recommends to students. Trouble is, most 23’s have 20-35 year old pads at this point, and they need an overhaul. Unlike nearly any other student saxophone ever made, the 23 actually deserves and warrants an overhaul. So if you want the best, for $1000 less than a new YAS-26 (which, frankly, is a silly price for 26 but whatever), then get this! I try to keep one or two around at any given time. Pair this with a GS New York for a great jazz tone. Pair it with the upcoming GS Hyperion (Brilhart Tonalin Great Neck alto copy) and you’ll have a beautiful cool jazz / do-it-all alto tone.

  • Yamaha YAS-62 Alto 36702 Plays Great

    $ 2,750

    This is a beautiful Yamaha YAS-62 professional alto saxophone that also happens to cost only a little more than a new YAS-26 student saxophone. It really shows how good an idea it is to buy a used pro horn, compared to a new student level saxophone. This 62 just got out of the repair shop and had a full checkup with a few pads replaced and everything adjusted. It is in very good condition with only minor wear from use, and it will be an excellent saxophone to own and play and enjoy, that will also hold its value well if you ever want to sell it. The 62 has been the standard saxophone that teachers recommend that you get, for a good reason.

  • Yamaha YBS-61 Baritone Low A Original Lacquer Great Deal! 7578

    $ 4,250

    Great deal on an original lacquer professional low A baritone by Yamaha. This is the YBS-61 from the late 70’s and has the ‘purple logo’ mostly intact on the bell. This horn has older pads and is ready to get a repad or at least a thorough playing condition job done. It has had some dents removed, like from the upper bow, but it’s in quite good shape now with minimal dents or dings, and just lacquer wear from regular use over the years. If you’ve been looking for that elusive fully professional baritone under $4k, this is one. Yamahas are built to last, and they’re also among the easiest baritones to work on, so if you put in the money to restore it, you should have a dependable and great playing bari for a discount price. The 61’s remind me of Yamaha trying to sound like a Selmer Mark VI but with a little clearer tone and a little better intonation. Only one available!

  • Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone

    Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone – In stock now!

    $ 799

    November 2022 Inventory Update: Two in stock!

    The Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone is a new kind of digital saxophone. It is more like a real saxophone than any digital saxophone that has come before, because it has regular saxophone keywork. So unlike an EWI 4000S, 5000, or a WX5, you don’t have to switch to a different keywork feel in order to play the digital saxophone anymore.

    This is going to be huge for people who want to practice saxophone quietly rather than people who just want a midi or digital interface sax. You can practice with headphones on and not bother your neighbors at all hours. Or play it quietly on one of the 15 volume settings. The Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone also works fine as a digital input into whatever sound processing software that you want to use. But it feels more like a regular saxophone under the fingers. I’ve been having fun with digital saxophones ever since the Casio DH-100, and I think like the Casio, this Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone will probably become an instant classic of its genre for the same reason – it feels more like an actual saxophone to play than any similar option.

    In brief (more below) are the main features of the Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone that you might care about:

    1. The Yamaha Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone has a speaker in the brass bell, so that the sound you generate vibrates the instrument’s body tube. As you play louder, you feel more resonance.
    2. The Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone has a regular saxophone mouthpiece (basically a repurposed Yamaha 4C soprano piece) and even a ‘reed’ so that it feels like a saxophone in your mouth also. The reed doesn’t vibrate though! You can even swap out the Yamaha mouthpiece for your own mouthpiece, as long as it has a similar bore to a 4C, though this won’t do much to the tone if anything. It might make it feel a little more like ‘home’ to you.
    3. The Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone has an advanced breath sensor that responds instantly to small changes in breath support by changing the tone that you generate. Again, you see the theme – feels a bit more like a saxophone to play.
    4. The sound it generates is actual sound samples taken from real Yamaha saxophones. You can switch among Yamaha soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone tones on your Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone. It’s a pretty good idea, thought it still sounds like a midi sax to me. The bari sax model is actually pretty good though.
    5. There’s an app that lets you further modify and control the tone you get from the Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone. The app is actually quite good! And you can also input the sound from your Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone into Ableton or Garageband or ProTools or whatever you like and modify it there, or even run the output into analog or digital pedals, like in our saxophone looping video here.
    6. Interestingly it’s keyed from high F# down to low A so you can use it as a baritone model! And the tuning is adjustable within 5 hz so you can play with a flat piano or in different temperatures with acoustic instruments whose tuning changes with changing weather etc. Not a bad idea!

    Shortcomings of the YDS-150 are as follows:

    1. It’s a bit awkward changing notes with the digital switches on the keys versus the analog feel of a real sax.
    2. Similarly, starting and stopping notes with breath is different from how you articulate them on a real sax. So playing four quarter notes staccato requires you to learn habits that don’t transfer to sax.
    3. Reed doesn’t vibrate, so it doesn’t really feel like a saxophone to play.
    4. Saxophone sound samples don’t sound all that much like a saxophone. See our A/B comparison video for comparison of a Yamaha custom alto vs the YDS-150 alto sound model.
    5. No vibrato or control of tone with embouchure – breath only.

    I’ll put more Yamaha YDS-150 Digital Saxophone details and some review videos and sound clips in the long description below, so scroll down for the additional info! And for only $799, it’s not bad even just as a tool to get some late night practice time in.

    Yamaha YSS-675 Professional Soprano Great Deal! 0381

    $ 2,750

    The Yamaha YSS-675 Professional Soprano Saxophone is one of the best soprano saxophones you can buy for the money without a doubt. It is built just like a Yamaha Custom YSS-875 soprano, and it plays just like one too, but it costs less. I have never quite understood why Yamaha made two models that play nearly identically and even look the same and came in the same case with the same necks etc, but that were priced differently. In any case, the result is that you can get a pro soprano for a very reasonable price. This one has a mix of pads, some of which are original, and it plays well and easily on them. Like the original 875, this is the darkest sounding Yamaha that was ever made. The current 875EX is a lot brighter than this. The intonation is excellent, and the dark tone pairs really well with soprano voice, and darkens down some brighter soprano pieces beautifully. Whether you’re wanting to play in a classical sax quartet or play smooth jazz on stage, or anything in between, this YSS-675 does it quite well. I like it with a hard rubber Yanagisawa mouthpiece in around a 5 tip. If you’re starting to play soprano for the first time, get a 4 tip, and you will find it easier than you may have expected to get a good sound on this. I rarely have a nicer soprano like this in the under $3000 price range so someone should definitely grab this!

    Only one available!

     

     

  • Yamaha YSS-82ZRS Custom One Piece Bent Neck Silver Plated Soprano Mint!

    $ 5,100

    Mint, like new YSS-82ZRS soprano that plays absolutely perfectly! These will be collectible some day, because they are sold in small numbers and are the most desirable version. I always have to wait 6 months when I want to order one new. They’re made to order, and will hold their value well over time. If you want the resonance of a one piece soprano with the comfort of the bent neck, so that it hangs correctly on the strap hook, then 82ZR is for you! It plays almost exactly like a 62R, but it costs less. It’s hard to beat in the soprano category.

    $ 3,450

    Available now!

    New in the plastic Yanagisawa AWO1 Alto saxophone. This is probably the best deal overall in a modern alto, period. This horn just got checked out post shipping and is ready to play its very best right out of the case when you get it. It’s completely mint, with factory box and paperwork etc. You won’t find a better playing Yanagisawa AWO1 Alto Saxophone, nor will you find a better price. I have an extremely limited number of these that I can offer you at this sale price. Good luck to the few people who are able to jump on this deal!

    If you’re wondering, the AWO1 is the brass version of Yanagisawa’s professional alto. This is the new name of what used to be the A901 model. It has a more open and vibrating feel than the heavier-built AWO10 (which is also a fantastic alto, but more expensive). My first good alto was one of these. If you want the best alto for the money, that would be the Yanagisawa AWO1. And when you go to re-sell it, you can get most to all of your money back, which is the opposite of most new saxophones.

  • Yanagisawa AWO10 Elite Professional Alto Saxophone Brand New Fantastic Deal! A991

    $ 4,250

    Mint, unplayed, new in the plastic Yanagisawa AWO10 Alto saxophone. It’s also a fantastic deal. The AWO10 (formerly called A991) is Yanagisawa’s top of the line saxophone, made of solid brass, like most saxophones (as distinguished from their bronze and silver options that are significantly more expensive.)  This AWO10 just got checked out post shipping and is ready to play its very best right out of the case when you get it. It’s completely mint, with factory box and paperwork etc. You won’t find a better playing Yanagisawa AWO10, nor will you find a better price. I have an extremely limited number of these that I can offer you at this sale price. Good luck to the few people who are able to jump on this amazing deal!

    If you’re wondering, the AWO10 is the brass version of Yanagisawa’s top line professional alto. This is the new name of what used to be the A991 model. It has sturdier ‘ribbed construction’ and double arms on the bell keys, to distinguish it from its extremely similar but less expensive sibling, the AWO1 (A901). The Yanagisawa AWO10 also has the underslung neck octave key mechanism and fancy hand engraving. I love how the neck octave key looks and works. My first good alto was a Yanagisawa, and I never would have needed to upgrade from it. The tone is medium bright, clear, and round, with a crisp projection to it. With a classical mouthpiece, it darkens up beautifully while still shimmering. For jazz, it’s a natural lead alto with a brighter mouthpiece, like the GS New York or many others. The intonation is excellent. Keywork is super comfortable. The build quality that Yanagisawa offers is the best of any saxophone, and yet the price is lower than many of its competitors. That’s why Yanagisawa is SO popular among pro sax players, and why its saxophones are often back ordered with long waits. Here’s your chance to grab one at a SUPER price that is all setup and ready to go for many years making beautiful music dependably. It’s the Lexus of modern saxophones, and it just makes playing effortless.

    If you’re wondering, the WO2 is the bronze version of Yanagisawa’s professional alto. This is the new name of what used to be the A902 model. It has a more open and vibrating feel than the heavier-built AWO20 (which is also a fantastic alto, but more expensive). My first good alto was one of these. And the solid bronze adds more depth and complexity to the tone – kind of a thick heart to the core of the tone. It’s quite easy to hear once you get used to it and play the different Yanagisawa saxophones. The AWO2 (A902) and AWO20 (A992) are my favorites, closely followed by AWO1 (A901) and AWO10 (A991) (same horns but in brass instead of bronze).

This AWO20 just got checked out post shipping and is ready to play its very best right out of the case when you get it. It’s completely mint, with factory box and paperwork etc. You won’t find a better playing Yanagisawa AWO2o, nor will you find a better price.

  • Yanagisawa SN981 Sopranino Gorgeous 387628

    $ 3,800

    This is a nearly new looking Yanagisawa SN-981 sopranino saxophone in excellent condition. It plays beautifully on the original Yanagisawa mouthpiece, and has a warmer, better in tune tone than really any other sopranino on the market. The only sign of wear I see on this is a little line inside the bell flare either from a stand or from getting bumped on something. It’s not dented now or anything, and the rest of the horn looks brand new. If you’re going to buy a sopranino, this is definitely the one to get. No other sopranino sounds as good or plays as easily as the Yanagisawa SN-981. Only one available!

  • Yanagisawa SWO2 Solid Bronze Professional Soprano Saxophone New! + Setup

    $ 3,950

    One just in!!

    This is a new Yanagisawa SWO2 Soprano saxophone in solid bronze. The one piece solid bronze Yanagisawa SWO-2 soprano is one of my favorite modern soprano saxophones of all. It has a noticeably darker, more complex tone than the SWO1, so to me, it’s worth the extra money to spring for the bronze on soprano. The one piece design means no neck socket to leak, and the horn resonates beautifully under your fingers when you play. It tunes beautifully as well. The keywork feels great under the fingers – dry and snappy. Yanagisawa has the best build quality of any modern saxophone, and it shows. Plus I get all new Yanagisawa saxophones checked out pre-sale by one of my excellent repairmen, so that any tiny improvements that will take it from good to great are done before you get it. This is a surprisingly big deal, and something you want to have done, regardless of where you happen to buy a new saxophone. A couple of tiny, smart fixes often take an already good horn into the exceptional category.

    If you’ve been thinking of getting a soprano, then Yanagisawa is really a great choice. These are precision instruments that are built to last and that sound beautiful. They work with a wide range of mouthpieces (Selmer sopranos are more ‘mouthpiece picky’), which is nice because you can shape the tone with mouthpiece choice a LOT.

    I have an extremely limited availability of these Yanagisawa saxophones, but ONE SWO2 is currently available as of November 2022. Whoever gets it will be one lucky saxophonist!
