    Buffet R13 Golden Age Professional Clarinet Getting a Full Restoration now!

    This beautiful R13 is getting a full restoration by Mike Hollis in Pittsburgh right now. Mike is a real clarinet geek and does restorations like this at the highest level. This instrument came along with a beautiful vintage Selmer tenor sax, and the pair of instruments both play really beautifully. The original owner must have had very good taste in selecting them. There are no repairs or cracks or issues. The photos are obviously before it gets restored. It should be ready in early July. If you want to reserve it, let me know. Even on original pads, it had a big, beautiful, round tone and sounded like a real winner. With a restoration, it will be fantastic.

  • King Original Gold Plate Soprano Saxophone Beautiful Engraving 56362

    $ 1,500

    This is an original gold plated King soprano from about 1922.  The engraving is exquisite, as it usually is on gold plated King saxophones, and the horn itself is in very good physical condition.  Keyed to high Eb, it currently plays ok on old pads, and the tone is very warm and pleasant. As is typical with sopranos of this age, the intonation is pretty flexible, but given a good ear and voicing it is entirely possible to play in tune- just don’t expect this to do the job for you like a modern Yamaha or Yanagisawa!  The trade-off is, as it usually is in my experience, richness of tone for flexibility of intonation, although a large chamber soprano mouthpiece (like a vintage Buescher) will make the job a lot easier. I was playtesting this on a modern Yanagisawa piece though and enjoyed it quite a bit, without any notable intonational problems for me personally.  This is from a collection and has old pads. But just the gold plate is worth the entire price of the horn. It’s a super deal. You could easily find this priced double somewhere else. Includes the nice Buescher soprano mouthpiece in the photos!

    The original case for this instrument is in good condition and fits it very well.

    Oscar Adler Curved Soprano Saxophone – Crazy Right Hand Bell Keys! 992

    $ 1,600

    Highly Collectible Oscar Adler Markneukirchen-made curved soprano saxophone. This instrument has three ‘petal’ keys that allow you to play low C#, B and Bb with your right hand fingertips, which is pretty useful actually. I have never seen another instrument like this one in person or online. Excellent condition. I had two of the petal key touches expertly (and invisibly) restored where they had been shortened. Comes in a cool possibly-original red case with tons of storage. Pads are older of course, but it will play a bit on them, with a big, wide, dark spread tone.

    Super cool piece of saxophone history here. This instrument may be from around 1909 or so, though I am admittedly not an expert on dating early Oscar Adler saxophones.

    Selmer Mark VI Soprano from 1971 Excellent Original Lacquer 189112

    This is an extremely nice condition, original pads Selmer Mark VI soprano.  It appears to have been played very little, and actually plays extremely well on its original pads, which to me is an indication that this horn has led a very sheltered life and harbors no surprises for its future owner.  This horn is original lacquer, Euro-assembled with no engraving. The original case, protected by a case cover, is in excellent condition. The horn plays with the warm, centered and focused tone that VI sopranos are known for- with the certain alluring beauty that makes them hard to put down.  If you’ve been looking for an original, unmolested Mark VI soprano to make your own, it would be hard to find one in better shape than this one, and the later serial makes it one of the less expensive ways to acquire one.

    It includes the case in the photos, and if you want to add a nice BAM Signature soprano case, I can get you a great discount on one. Keeps the horn very safe in shipping and gigging.

    Only one available!

  • Selmer Mark VI Soprano Saxophone 253537

    Beautiful original lacquer Selmer Mark VI soprano saxophone in excellent condition. The pads are a mix of older and newer, mostly older. But it plays nicely on them with a warm, resonant tone. This is a great VI soprano and sounds rich, and also tunes quite well. Original case is in good shape too. No dents or dings, no resolders. A bit of stand wear inside the bell flare is about all there is to say about this very nice Mark VI soprano!

  • Soprano Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Hard Rubber Mouthpieces

    $ 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. 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 YSS-475 Soprano Saxophone Near Mint Condition Made with YSS-62 Tooling

    $ 1,650

    The YSS-475 is made with the tooling from the YSS-62 and plays just like a coveted Yamaha 62 purple logo soprano, but costs less. This makes it by far the best entry-priced soprano saxophone. It’s really a professional soprano for an intermediate price. Tunes great, sounds warm and pleasant, keywork is comfortable, and the price is low. What’s not to love?

    This one has been played only a tiny bit since new, and it looks almost like a new instrument. It includes everything in the photos – nice original case, mouthpiece, and some other accessories. It comes with a fresh checkup to make sure the low-miles pads are sealing their best.

    These always sell quickly. Get yours before it is gone.
