  • Conn NWII Soprano Burnished Gold w/ Train Portrait Plays Great! 184812

    $ 4,000

    You never see burnished Conn sopranos with portrait. This one has a train, which I find extremely delightful. This was also recently overhauled and plays well on the current, newish pads. No significant damage. Original gold plate. Conn case is from the right vintage but not original, I think, because the gold ones always had green velvet instead of purple. I’ve only seen one other portrait soprano like this, and it had an owl on it and sold in 1 day.

  • Lyon and Healy Bb Soprano Original Silver 200211

    $ 850

    Lyon and Healy branded straight Bb soprano saxophone from 1928 or so. Who actually manufactured this is disputed, as Couturier (the usual name) was both a cornet manufacturer, and also was not actually involved in making this saxophone (having retired in 1923). But the quickest way to find them is to look for Lyon and Healy Couturier saxophones.

  • 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 YSS-82ZRS Soprano Saxophone One Piece Bent Neck Silver Plate! BRAND NEW

    $ 4,950

    Available new by special order anytime. Email me at [email protected] to order. The Yamaha YSS-62R and 62RS are the most desirable vintage sopranos pretty much. Yamaha made an upgraded reissue of this soprano, with improved keywork but the same bore. It’s simply the best.

  • Yanagisawa S990 Soprano Saxophone High G Very Good Condition 210471

    $ 3,150

    Used Yanagisawa S990 soprano saxophone in very good condition. This one has the high G key! the S990 sounds a bit warmer and more rich than the S991/SWO10, which I like. This particular soprano is in very goood cosmetic and physical condition. It has been played some, and the pads are original, so plan on getting some pads replaced for it to play its very best. In particular, the palm key pads will need replacing, along with some lower stack pads probably cleaned at least. This soprano is on consignment for a good past customer, and I haven’t done any work on it for that reason. However, I did reduce the price so that you can easily get it tuned up when you receive it.

    It plays very well currently, and has a beautiful, rich, bell-like tone that is medium between bright and dark. Intonation is very good. I actually love the included Yanagisawa hard rubber soprano mouthpiece (5 tip). It’s easy to play, responds well, tunes great, and has a rich tone. Great first (or last) soprano mouthpiece if you don’t already have one, and it’s included in the price. This sax has both necks, straight and semicurved. The semicurved neck puts the weight of the horn on the neckstrap instead of on your thumb, which is a big improvement over a fully straight soprano in my opinion. These sopranos are hard to find in good shape, and this one is quite nice.

    Yanagisawa SC-800 Curved Soprano Saxophone 129593 Great Deal

    $ 2,150

    Beautiful example of a Yanagisawa curved soprano saxophone. This beauty has good pads, and has some removable key risers to aid ergonomics on the palm keys especially. I’m leaving them, because I find they help, but your repair shop can pop them off for you if you like. The SC800 like this has a warm, rich tone that you don’t find on modern sopranos, yet it also has pretty good intonation, which is not the case on most curved sopranos (or sopranos in general). It has a nice little ProTec case that will fit inside a backpack or suitcase with ease. This would be a fun travel saxophone, or just a fun soprano to use for anything. The curved setup means you can hear yourself much better than trying to bounce the sound off a wall on straight soprano. it also feels light to hold and hangs well on a strap.

    Yanagisawa SWO-2 Solid Bronze Soprano Mint Unplayed + New Horn Checkup

    $ 4,500

    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 April 2022. Whoever gets it will be one lucky saxophonist!
