    10MFan Merlot 7* Hard Rubber Tenor Mouthpiece MPC227

    This is a hard rubber 10MFan Merlot 7* in mint condition. It measures .106″ and plays with a full, round, classic mainstream jazz sort of tenor tone. You can google this piece for tons of info. This is a good choice for your first nice tenor mouthpiece, and the tip opening is pretty comfortable for most players.

    Beechler Vintage 3S Tenor Hard Rubber 5 tip MPC260

    $ 100

    If you are looking for a jazzy sounding hard rubber mouthpiece that is at a smaller, more comfortable tip opening for people who don’t play tenor all the time, this would be a good fit. It’s also an interesting piece if you collect mouthpieces, because I haven’t seen an early one like this before.

    Brilhart ‘Designed By’ Tonalin Streamline 4 (Modern 5*) Tenor MPC539DT Original Facing Rare!

    This mouthpiece is SOLD, but to find mouthpieces in stock, please go to the following link: https://www.getasax.com/mouthpieces/

     

    Super rare early Brilhart Tonalin Streamline ‘Designed By’ Brilhart Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece. Medium-large tall but narrow Brilhart Tonalin chamber, straight sidewalls, very subtle rollover baffle. The worn bite plate indicates that it was well-loved. With a bit harder than my normal reed, this piece produces lovely subtones at full volume. A nice fat tone, good projection. This streamline shape works well with a normal HR alto ligature, or with the Echo Master hard rubber alto ligature on this site.

    Brilhart Hard Rubber Great Neck Tenor 4-digit .079″ MPC251

    $ 450

    This is a beautiful early Brilhart tenor mouthpiece. It’s the “Designed By Arnold Brilhart” stamped model, and it has a 4-digit serial 1803. Great Neck NY on the shank, and a 4 stamp on the table. Looks like original facing to me, and measures .079, which is about a modern 5. There are some light tooth scratches on the beak that would polish off, and a few other scratches on the body. This is an easy to play tip opening for people looking for a first tenor mouthpiece, or a piece to play in an ensemble or band setting, or even for classical sax.

    Buescher or Conn Vintage Bass Sax Mpc B59

    Nearly impossible to find, here’s a real vintage bass sax mouthpiece. This piece is a lot bigger than the other vintage bari pieces I have, so I think that it’s a true bass sax piece. This is useful for playing a vintage bass in tune, or for completing your set. There’s some scratching on the table, so this piece would be a good candidate to be restored by someone like Brian Powell. If you’ve never done that before, let me know and I can take care of it for you.

    Buescher True Tone Alto Original Overhauled

    Buescher True Tone IV C Melody Silver Plated 233xxx

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

    Conn New Wonder II Tenor 228xxx Gold Plate!

    $ 3,250
    If you are looking for a BIG, spread, velvety vintage tenor tone that you can take in a million different directions, then this may be the horn for you. And if you are looking for an instrument that is also beautiful, collectible, and likely to go up in value, this heavily gold-plated vintage tenor in excellent condition would be a great choice. These gold plated tenors are very special. Modern plating techniques just put a tiny fraction of the amount of gold on a horn that Conn did back in the day. This is THICK, gorgeous plating that would cost several thousand dollars to replicate today (and it still wouldn’t be this color). The price of just the plating today would be more than the price of the horn. Put that together with the fact that horns like this are awesome as instruments, and with how rare nice gold tenors are, and you have a very good investment type horn as well. It’s very uncommon in today’s world to be able to get all of your money back out of anything you buy. But this is actually going to go up in value while you own it.

    Conn Transitional Tenor Saxophone 251xxx Silver Overhauled+Hisco

    Here is a silver plated transitional Conn tenor saxophone with naked lady (10M) engraving and split bell keys. The SN# is 251xxx, which is great for Conn tenors. This vintage of Conns is just the BEST. Huge tone, good intonation, super-resonant body tube, beautiful engraving, high collectibility value. The total package. This horn comes with a Hiscox case as well! Get it before it is gone. These do NOT come around very often, though I do try very hard to grab them whenever they become available.

    Couf Superba 2 Soprano Saxophone Fat Tone

    This is a hard-to-find Couf Superba 2 soprano. Like the Superba 1 soprano and baritone, this horn has straight tone holes, which will be easier for your tech to keep in good adjustment. It has a big, warm tone with a lush, powerful core. If you are looking for a fat sounding soprano, this is it. The key work is pretty comfortable, except for the in-line palm keys, but this horn has nicely built-up palm keys so that they are much more comfortable. But to get the most out of it, you’re going to want to get it overhauled. This is a lot of soprano for the money, and it sounds like nothing else. Think Grover Washington Jr.

    Dukoff Miami D7 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece E10

    This is a Dukoff Tenor Super Power Chamber D7. These mouthpieces began production in 1972 and are still made today. This piece has a .100 tip opening, a high baffle, a medium chamber and straight side walls. These Miami pieces are the most desirable version, because they were better made than the current production models out there. The sound of this piece is bright-but-full-bodied in a way that makes it great for any playing setting where you need to be able to project or cut through at all. Nice piece!

    Dukoff Super Power Chamber D8 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC467

  • Dukoff Supersonic Penn Los Angeles Tenor E38

    This is yet another iteration of a mouthpiece that I have been collecting quite a few of lately – the Dukoff Supersonic/Zimberoff blank that was made for a number of other companies by Dukoff around the middle of last century. These are excellent mouthpieces for getting a dark, burning jazz or all around tenor sound. They are great opened up to larger tips, which is why I have several listed in different tip openings. Besides the above mentioned names, you also find this piece as Selmer Elkhart NY, Geo M Bundy, and even Buescher. This one just got opened up by Brian Powell, and it is an outstanding player.

  • Dukoff Supersonic Selmer Elkhart Tenor BP 8 110 D33

    $ 375

There is a bit of wear on the bite plate, but other than this it looks great.

The Mark I is the darkest of his mouthpieces. This piece is in excellent condition and comes in its original box. These pieces are impossible to find and very very rare in near mint condition.

    Geo. M Bundy BP 7* 105 Nice! Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece E26

    This is a nice (and lesser-known) Geo. M. Bundy 3 that Brian Powell opened up to a .105. George Bundy had good taste in mouthpieces, and most of those bearing his name are of surprisingly high quality. This one is made of good quality hard rubber and the blank is very nice for tenor. With Brian Powell’s superb facing work, you’re getting a really excellent mouthpiece that is better than most pieces made and sold today for a good price. This piece plays like a vintage Otto Link or HR Brilhart, but with a bit more punch from the squeeze in the throat of the piece. It has a rollover baffle, straight/diagonal side walls, and a medium-large chamber. This piece looks to be in near mint condition.

    Goldbeck & Co. 3 Tenor Mouthpiece F35

    This is a Goldbeck & Co. 3 tenor mouthpiece, refaced by a professional mouthpiece tech in Germany. It has a .105 tip opening, a rollover baffle, curved side walls, and a large round chamber. This is supposed to be the same blank as an old Otto Link Master Link, and it does look basically identical to the Master Link that I have here right now, so I would tend to believe that. The tone is big, dark, 30’s warmth, but you can also project on one of these with the right technique, as Pharaoh Sanders has shown.

    Goldbeck Soprano Metal Mouthpiece Rare! MPC245

    This is a cool vintage Goldbeck soprano mouthpiece measuring .046.” It includes the original ligature and cap as well. The fluted sides give this piece a striking art deco look. It’s in excellent condition and has virtually no wear. It also plays well, with a dark, round tone – large chamber and not much baffle. Works great on vintage sopranos as well as modern ones, especially when you want a big, dark full tone.

  • GS NEW YORK Alto Mouthpiece Meyer Bros NY Replica

    $ 199

    Sneak Preview listing for 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 perfer 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. 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 (FDA Approved)  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.

    Thanks for all your support of the GS Mouthpieces project! We will have more excellent alto pieces coming soon, incuding my best M.C. Gregory Model A alto  like Paul Desmond and Art Pepper played. So after you perfect your Cannonball /Phil Woods Meyer Bros NY tone, you can look forward to the Model A’s ‘dry martini’ west coast tone.

    Hiscox Artist Alto Ivory Saxophone Case LA-WAS-I

    $ 479

    Hiscox makes the best overall saxophone case on the market today for most horns. This is especially true for vintage saxophones, because a Hiscox case will fit harder-to-fit horns like a transitional Conn with split bell keys and a larger than normal bell. It will also fit a 10M or similar horn with opposite side bell keys. These are the strongest case on the market, as well as the best insulated against temperature changes, and also the lightest for travel or shipping.

    JJ Babbitt Elkhart Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece D75

    This is a cool Babbitt Elkhart mouthpiece. Babbit mouthpieces are not very well documented on the internet, so I’m rounding up several to see how they play. In general, I have been very pleased. (Old Geo M Bundy pieces also seem to be pretty consistent winners.) This piece is solid for all-around ensemble tenor work. It blends well but also has a pleasant voice of its own that is not stuffy like the ubiquitous Selmer C* is on tenor (blech).

    Keilwerth SX-90R Tenor 110xxx Black Nickel

    I seldom get to sell a Keilwerth saxophone. This may be because most Keilwerth owners have no intention of selling their horns! I know that I have no plans to sell my personal Keilwerth. This is a beautiful example of Keilwerth’s top pro tenor – the SX-90R, which has rolled tone holes and black nickel finish. The black nickel is a gorgeous saxophone finish. It’s classy and eye-turning, and it holds up better than lacquer too.

    Do you want to play a King Super 20, without having to pay for a King Super 20? Here’s your chance! This is a clean, original lacquer King Super 20 alto from not far into the Eastlake period, where the horns are still high quality and well made, and play great. I am pricing it low so that someone gets a deal and can get it repadded and still come out ahead on it. This beautiful Super 20 alto is original condition – nobody has messed with it, there are no resolders, no dents, and it still has the original factory pads. The case is even nice, and you get the original mouthpiece and paperwork too! Just get it overhauled, and it will be a screamer.

    King Zephyr Special Tenor Saxophone

    The Zephyr Special is a great vintage pro tenor make by the King company. This horn has a solid silver neck and the desirable extra pearls on the side keys and G#. It has been relacquered, and it looks like a recent job to me, based on the light color of the epoxy lacquer. The engraving is still sharp, even on the fine lines on the engraved bell keys, and there is no evidence of heavy buffing, so the job was done well.

    King Zephyr Special Tenor Saxophone 209xxx

    This beautiful Zephyr Special was made in 1937, which is the first year that these horns were made, and it is a beautiful example as well! It’s rare to find any saxophone that looks this good after 75 years, and finding such a rare and desirable one is really special. This horn has no dents or dings, and looks gorgeous with full pearls on palm and side keys and G#. Most people would sell this horn as original lacquer, because it looks really really good, and the engraving could hardly look any better.

    Lawton 7 Star BB Alto Mouthpiece MPC232

    This is a vintage gold-plated Geoff Lawton alto mouthpiece that is perfect for smooth jazz alto or Rock&Roll / R&B alto where you want that brassy, screaming alto tone. The cool features of a Lawton are the large bullet chamber (so it tunes well on a range of altos, and maintains some warmth) and the carefully done high slant baffle to give you the cut and projection you want. The ligature workmanship is also satisfying. You can slide the lig around on rails and tighten it just how you want.

    NOVA Woodwinds Bronze Low A Baritone Saxophone Brand New Great Deal

    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. I have had to scrounge for deals on used Yamaha or Yanagisawa baritones, but if the used baritones need a repad or other repairs, then you’re immediately back in the $4k price range, so it really is hard to get anything decent, let alone new under $2500. That’s where the NOVA baritone shines. For only $2450, 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, which is time-consuming, 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. And it actually plays down to low A 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 bronze, and then in the brass 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 Rico Metallite for funk/rock, a Yamaha 5C or Rousseau for an inexpensive beginner baritone mouthpiece for concert band, 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.

This piece is in very good original condition, and the tip, rails, table etc all look great. The bite plate shows only minor tooth wear. This piece has a dark, wide tone with a large chamber and no baffle. It also includes what look like the original ligature and cap, which is great!

It has a beautiful original facing that is a good example to show someone of what original Link facing looked like. Smooth, cloudy looking rails fading into curved striations in the middle of the table, and staying soft and cloudy looking to the end of the table. Perfection! This piece includes the original and desirable T-stamped Otto Link ligature in similarly great shape.

  • Powell Silver Eagle SE10 Alto One of 18 Made – all options solid silver +Matt Stohrer Overhau

    $ 12,000

    For your viewing pleasure, this is one of the 18 Powell Silver Eagle saxophones made. Powell conceived of an ambitious project to bring back an American-made saxophone of the highest quality. Inspired by the Super 20 SilverSonic, the Silver Eagle reproduces the bore while adding solid silver soldered tone holes and modern keywork. Powell sadly ended their project after making only 18 saxophones, despite high demand, due to the high cost of production. This horn plays like a good super 20 but a little more evenly, and has been completely overhauled by Matt Stohrer. This is the ultimate collectible among modern saxophones, and it is also a burning player. Asking price is just what these cost new, plus a little extra since it got a $1500 overhaul on top of that! It’s not even inflated for the collectibility value, which is probably not smart of me, but there it is. If you want to discuss all the details of this project, I can put you in touch with the people who built it. These were most definitely a new saxophone bore and neck design, inspired by the best King Super 20 SilverSonic altos, both according to them and according to the folks who bought the tooling and mandrels when the project ended. The keywork is modified from tooling bought from B&S, which accounts for the pinky table that sticks out farther than it would on something like a Yamaha.

    There is most certainly only one available. This one has all the possible factory options, which only a subset of Powell Silver Eagles had – including the solid silver tone holes and even cryo treatment. Of the 18 saxophones built, I know at least a couple of them were brass bell, and some others lacked other of these features. This is one of the ones with everything, which makes it even more collectible. Includes the original accessories, case, and paperwork.

    Just for fun, here’s Matt Stohrer’s repairman’s overview from when he overhauled it.

    Selmer AS-500 Student Alto

    The Selmer AS-500 is one of the most popular and most widely recommended student saxophones today. Many band directors insist that students get either this or the Yamaha intro model. And if you can find one used like this, in great condition, then you are doing even better, saving a boatload of cash and getting the exact same horn for way cheaper. Saxophones do not wear out over time like cars or shoes. So used is as good as new, if the horn is not damaged.

Some small dents were removed from the back of the body tube, and some lacquer is missing from where the bell/bow ring was soldered. The horn is now straight and feels new under the fingers. The bell flare is nice, the neck is correct, and the dents are removed from the back of the body. Even the lacquer burn on the bell ring is mostly gone and the brass aged to match the lacquer color.

    The overhaul on this horn is top notch. You’re not going to find a better setup on a Balanced Action or Super Balanced Action tenor. It is light but snappy and ‘dry’ under the fingers. Response is instant. The horn resonates like crazy under the fingers. The tone is rich and velvety, medium dark, but with a brighter edge when pushed. Resonators are the nice hand-machined TenorMadness slightly domed brass reusable ones, that are incidentally also  authentic for vintage Selmer.

    I’m including a BAM Cabine tenor case with this to keep it safe in shipping and gigging. This is one of those horns you DON’T ever sell, and that you don’t want to put down. It’s the sort of saxophone you don’t let your saxophone-playing friends play, in order to protect them from a lifetime of envy. Not kidding.

    Selmer Elkhart Dukoff Supersonic 8 Tenor BP E34

    This is a Dukoff Supersonic/ Zimberoff House of Note mouthpiece blank that Bobby Dukoff made for Selmer. That is why it is stamped Selmer Elkhart NY. You see this same blank with several other names stamped on it as well. The Dukoff/Zimberoff version has more hand finishing in the baffle than the Selme Elkhart version, so I sent this to Brian Powell to have that work done, and to be opened up to a .110 or 8 tip. It now plays great, with a fairly open, dark, complex tone that is on the punchier side (for a vintage hard rubber piece) and has a nice buzz to it. These are among my favorite vintage mouthpieces. Here’s a chance to get one that plays its best at a price that competes with current production mouthpieces, than-which it is far superior in materials, tone, and finish work. This piece has a rollover baffle, curved side walls, and a large round chamber.

    Selmer Mark VI Tenor Saxophone 86xxx Original Lacquer Overhaul

    I have owned the same Mark VI 80k tenor for the last 6 years, and it helps me to resist the tendency to see every horn that comes in as a potential keeper. But every now and then, a horn comes along that makes me want to keep it anyway, and this is one of those. It is an extremely clean 86k tenor with Matt Stohrer’s overhaul just done. The horn had only a small dent on the back of the bow that was removed very well, and no other damage or past repairs at all. It was a one owner horn and came with original pads.

    Selmer S80 C* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece D70

    This is a Selmer S80 C* for alto saxophone. These mouthpieces are often recommended by high school band directors. This piece has a .069 tip opening, no baffle, straight side walls, and a square chamber. There is some wear on the bite plate and some scratches from a ligature.

    Selmer S80 C* Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece D76 The Worst

    Here is a Selmer C* S80 tenor piece. This piece has a smallish tip opening and a square chamber, giving it a narrow dynamic range and a stuffy, nasal tone. Some band directors require these mouthpieces, as do many saxophone teachers, so I always have tons of them around here. But if I had my way, they would all be incinerated or melted down. I mean this specifically about the tenor pieces – the altos and sopranos are nice for beginner players. If you are required to buy this piece by some ill-informed authority figure, then please do the following two things. First, buy a used one, rather than paying the ridiculously high new price that Selmer charges, and second, let me know, and I will help you to find another piece that will actually give your otherwise-nice-sounding tenor the kind of tone that it deserves to have.

    Selmer S80 D Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece D84

    Selmer Series II Alto 403860 Great Playing Condition Great Deal!

    You read that price correctly. This is a Selmer Paris Series II alto with great pads for under $3k. Why? It has some lacquer wear, because it plays really well and has been played a reasonable amount. Setup is great, response is great. The low register pops right out no problem. Intonation is great, as you expect with one of these, designed and built for classical saxophone literature.

    Compared to buying a new Selmer Series II, this is much better, because it is literally half price, plus it has better pad work and setup. No past repairs that I see anywhere. And it’s all cleaned, oiled, and feeling dry and snappy under the fingers. If you want to get a great alto that you never have to upgrade, but your budget is on the lower side for a pro sax (relatively speaking), this is hard to beat.

    Only one available!

    Selmer Soloist Alto .082″ Kenny Garrett-style Ted Klum MPC254

    Ted Klum does some of the best mouthpiece facing work that I have seen ever. This is a beautifully done Selmer Soloist-style piece that Ted opened to .082, or around a modern 7 tip. This is equivalent to around an E or F stamped Soloist tip opening. People get these pieces opened up when they are going for the Kenny Garrett style of alto tone.

    This is a beautiful example of a vintage 60’s Selmer Soloist D alto mouthpiece. It looks nearly new, with only a little tooth scratching. It is original facing and measures .076″. This also includes the original ligature and cap. This completes your set with a 1960’s or later Selmer Mark VI alto, and it also works great for a wide range of alto playing.

      The SML Coleman Hawkins Special model is not often seen, and it seems to be especially rare in alto (this being the only one that I can find any evidence of existing). This horn is in my personal collection, since I’m a big SML fan myself. These horns were made in honor of the “Hawk” himself, who is said to have played one on (at least some of his) European tours.

        I have a soft spot for “the” branded things. Buescher at some point thought that this mouthpiece was the one that epitomized their brand. Scooped sidewalls, large round chamber, no baffle. Tip opening measures 0.068″. Classic swing era dark tone. high resistance, low to moderate projection. This would look great on your Aristocrat.

        This is a beautiful, near mint purple label Yamaha 62 alto. It has only a few light scratches on the back of the body, and the rest of the horn is basically perfect. It comes with the original case in excellent condition! All original condition. This is a super-clean example of one of the best modern altos period. It plays well with a medium bright tone, great intonation, and a more interesting-sounding core to the sound than most other Yamahas. These horns work well for every kind of playing, from serious saxophone study to jazz to rock and beyond (Dave Koz plays one of these for smooth jazz!).

        Yanagisawa S991 Soprano Two Necks Excellent Condition Plays Great!

        The Yanagisawa S991 is the Acura of soprano saxophones. It is built to extremely high standards, lasts forever, plays in tune, is easy to use. Basically, it does everything well. This horn is in excellent condition with only minor cosmetic wear from regular use. There is no past damage, and it comes in excellent playing condition. It just got a thorough tune up and is playing its best. The Yanagisawa S991 soprano has a rich, warm tone that is pleasant to listen to whether you are playing jazz, classical, or commercial music. I was just playing the Bach ‘Little’ Fugue in G minor on this soprano, and it really is almost the ideal instrument for the job. The intonation is just right on throughout, and the keywork is super comfortable and fast.

        Original case is in nice shape. If you have been looking for a great soprano for a great price that is easy to play and reliable, this is it!
