    Buescher True Tone C Soprano Original Silver Very Good Condition 140769

    $ 1,950
  • Buescher True Tone Soprano Gorgeous Original Silver Overhauled 189327

    $ 2,350

    This is an absolutely gorgeous example of a vintage Buescher True Tone soprano saxophone from just about the ideal serial range for tone. Vintage saxophone aficionados (geeks) like me tend to love the TT sopranos around 180-200k serial for their warmth and big sound, combined with really excellent intonation. This gorgeous example came to me with original pads still intact, and I got it overhauled and polished up. I was surprised and delighted to find that the ‘gold wash’ in the bell turned out to be rose gold!! I also love the little ring of engraving above the bell flare that gives this soprano a distinctive look. If you want a vintage soprano that tunes easily and sounds way warmer and fuller than any modern soprano (and that actually has reasonably comfortable keywork), this is it! It’s priced to sell as well. Good luck getting a nicer True Tone soprano and overhauling it for this price.

  • Conn New Wonder II Soprano Original Gold Plate Overhauled with Mods Front F 199071

    $ 2,950

    This is a gold plated (not lacquered but actual gold plate finish) vintage Conn New Wonder II soprano saxophone in excellent condition. It has a recent full overhaul, meaning all new everything that needs replaced for it to play its best. It also got a front F key added custom as part of the overhaul. You’d be hard-pressed to find a warmer, more pleasant soprano to play, or a more beautiful soprano for a better price. Only one available!

  • Selmer Mark VI Sopranino 5-digit RARE Original Lacquer Excellent! 98569

    $ 7,950

    This is an incredibly rare 5-digit Selmer Mark VI Sopranino saxophone. Serial 98569, close to Coltrane’s famous VI soprano. Original lacquer at about 98% intact; extremely clean condition with no damage and no past repairs. Original case is great as well. I may have this significantly underpriced. It’s the ultimate collectible sopranino saxophone. This is the only 5-digit sopranino I’ve had in the history of GetASax, so there is most certainly only one available!

  • Selmer Mark VI Soprano Near Mint Original Lacquer 222370

    $ 6,000
  • Selmer Mark VI Soprano Original Lacquer Excellent Condition! 210073

    $ 4,950

    Gorgeous original lacquer Selmer Mark VI soprano. The later serials like this tune the best of all the VI sopranos, and sound great. Both Coltrane and Kenny G play(ed) a VI soprano, so that should give you some idea of the range of tone possible on one of these. This one is about as clean and nice an example as you could find. The pads are original, and still sealing fairly well, but plan on a repad soon. Priced to be a great deal for someone.

  • SML King Marigaux Soprano Saxophone Gold Medal 2 Excellent 25321

    $ 2,000

    This is a gorgeous example of an SML soprano saxophone with original lacquer. It’s a Gold Medal 2, meaning it has straight tone holes, but it has nearly all of the other features of a Gold Medal 1 and is practically the same. Many of these were distributed by King and have the King name on the bell along with the Marigaux (The ‘M’ in SML). I have the matching tenor to this soprano also for sale now. These are some of the best values around in vintage saxophones today. The SML saxophones play basically like a Conn/Selmer hybrid, with a bigger, darker tone like a Conn, but with easy modern feeling keywork like a Selmer, and a a bit of French saxophone in the mix. If you want a soprano that isn’t reedy and nasal, but tends towards a wider operatic sound, even in the upper register, then Conn, Martin, and SML are your main options, and SML is the most modern feeling under the fingers of the three.

  • Soprano Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Hard Rubber Mouthpieces

    $ 165

    For Hard Rubber Soprano mouthpieces. This fits everything including vintage Buescher and Conn, Meyer, Selmer Soloist, Selmer S80, Yanagisawa, Vandoren, and virtually all of the boutique soprano mouthpieces.

    As an added bonus, this EchoMaster ligature also fits metal Dukoff alto mouthpieces like Dukoff Miami alto saxophone mouthpieces perfectly!

    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. And never before has there been a Soprano ligature available! (Brilhart only made alto and tenor.) This is an amazing ligature and also fits almost every soprano hard rubber mouthpiece ever made.

  • 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.

    $ 4,650

    Beautiful Purple Logo Yamaha 62 soprano in excellent condition that also just got a complete high end overhaul through GetASax. It’s a modern classic that has become even more desirable over time than it was when it first came out, as people recognized what a special combination of beautiful warm tone, modern keywork, and good intonation these sopranos have all in one package. And with the fresh overhaul, you can just play and enjoy it while it holds its value over time.

  • Yamaha YSS-82ZR Custom One Piece Bent Neck Soprano Mint Like New!

    $ 4,950

    Mint condition 82ZR I got in trade that is unplayed or maybe played once. As close to new as you will find! It also comes with the GetASax new horn checkup included, which is actually a very valuable service, as you can be sure the 82ZR is playing its best.

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

    $ 5,450

    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.

  • Yanagisawa SWO1 Professional Soprano Saxophone Brand New

    $ 3,950

    One available to ship now!! The Yanagisawa S-WO1 Soprano saxophone is probably the best quality soprano saxophone that you can get new in this price range, bar none. This one is IN STOCK (not a drop ship situation) and it has been checked out, setup, and tested, and comes to you brand new and playing its best right out of the case. My first nice saxophone was a Yanagisawa, and I continue to have a strong appreciation for the quality that you get per dollar on Yanagisawa instruments. They are precision crafted in a small factory of highly skilled and fairly paid workers in Japan. All the workers can do each step of the assembly (except for engraving) and they take turns making different parts of the horn at different times of the year. That means every single person who built this is skilled enough to build an entire saxophone him or herself. I don’t know of any other maker that has as good build quality as Yanagisawa consistently delivers year in, year out. The intonation is excellent. The ergonomics are comfortable. Tone is beautiful, and you can pick almost any mouthpiece you want, to change the tone, and it will still work well. Most sopranos are much more mouthpiece-picky (I’m looking at you, Selmer). It’s really pleasant to be able to buy a brand new soprano that has been checked out by GetASax (we’re picky) and is also a bargain price. With these sopranos sold out all over the USA, this deal hard to beat! We can only get a small number of these Yanagisawa sopranos in at this price, and this is currently the only one available! The factory mouthpiece is also quite good, so you don’t even have to budget for a nicer mouthpiece. No tax outside of NC. Shipping is quite affordable. Grab it!
