  • Buescher 400 Top Hat and Cane Tenor Relacquered Looks Original 345356

    $ 2,950

    Great deal on a beautiful Buescher Top Hat and Cane Tenor saxophone. These were the most deluxe saxophone that Buescher ever made, with extensive engraving, fancy neck design, and a ‘tone ring’ under the bell lip (Which I didn’t notice on the first one or two of these that I had, many years ago.)

    This horn needs an overhaul, meaning all new pads, corks, felts, cleaning and new oil (a regular overhaul). It’s mechanically and cosmetically very nice though, and will look nearly new when overhauled, save for the evidence of a dent that was removed from the back of the bow area before I listed it for sale here. It’s on consignment, so I can’t overhaul it pre-sale, but it should be a straightforward job for your repairer of choice. Or I can also recommend someone good who is near where you live (in most cases). These tenors go for like $2k more than this when original lacquer, so you’re saving a lot of money due to the new coat of lacquer, which, in this case, makes little difference to how the horn is put together (no significant buffing, no keywork damage or other relacquer-related issues).

  • Conn 10M Tenor 1940 Original Lacquer Fresh Overhaul Excellent! 300229

    $ 5,750

    This Pre-War original lacquer Conn 10M tenor is one of the best playing tenors on the site right now. It has a fresh GetASax top shelf overhaul and feels brand new under the fingers. Italian leather pads and reusable slightly domed brass resonators complete the package. It had some dings removed from the bow, and I had a new neck receiver made for it, because it was time after 83 years or so for that high-wear part to be replaced for a perfect neck seal for the next several decades. This horn absolutely roasts. It’s effortless in the low register, beautiful and wide sounding throughout, and tunes great as well. These are very fast under the fingers once you get used to the layout. Only one available!

    Conn 30M Connqueror Tenor Original Lacquer Matt Stohrer Overhaul 288743

    $ 8,000

    This is a beautiful Conn 30M Connqueror professional tenor saxophone that has a fresh overhaul just done by Matt Stohrer, who has overhauled more of these than anyone else I know. Matt’s overhaul is fantastic on a 30M, and allows the fancy adjustment screw design that is the signature of the Connqueror model to shine through and to benefit you long term. Basically, the 30M is a very fancy Conn 10M, and it has the fat, spread, powerful tone of a Conn 10M (think Dexter Gordon, who also played both 10M and 30M), but the 30M also has several deluxe features. The most significant is the ‘permadjust’ screw mechanism, that replaces cork and felt key regulation with special adjustable discs that are mounted on very fine threads with locking screws. You can google this if you want to learn all about it, but the bottom line is, that once the horn is correctly setup once then it holds its adjustment permanently. That means that you can get a Conn 30M Connqueror correctly overhauled once, and then as you eventually need pads replaced, you can just swap the pad out, which is cheap and easy, and you don’t need to do anything else to the horn. Your 30M can just play and play on the current setup with minimal maintenance cost indefinitely. That’s the beauty of the design! The pads are standard Pisoni Italian leather pads that are stocked commonly at repair shops all around the world, so swapping pads is easy. It also has the fancy slightly domed brass reusable resonators that cost $125+ a set and also let you swap out pads while keeping your resonators all matching. I love these on a Conn, and have them on my personal 30M as well.

    The other features that make a 30M special are the fancy neck octave key, the redesigned ‘flatter’ left hand pinky table (which Matt sets up to be really nice and snappy), and the solid silver pieces on every key touch that isn’t already pearl. The engraving is also about twice as extensive as the standard 10M pattern, so everything about the horn is as deluxe as Conn could make it. This particular horn was one owner, and I promised to get it completely restored when I agreed to buy it, so that’s what it got. There were some dents removed from the back of the bow, and a couple of small ones removed from the neck. The keywork is all snug and snappy, and the neck fit is nice and even, so it’s just great mechanically. You can get a sense of the tone in Tyler’s video below (He’s using a Rigotti Gold 3 Medium reed, and a GS SLANT tenor 7* mouthpiece.). It has a warm, powerful voice and also tunes great and feels comfortable under the fingers. It has been played a good amount, but it’s now ready for its next several decades of loving ownership, after having been restored back to top playing condition. If you want a Conn 30M that does everything well and is totally ready to go, and that is original lacquer, this is the one for you.

  • Conn Transitional NWII / 10M Tenor 1930 New Keywork 243217 Fresh Overhaul!

    $ 5,950

    Unlacquered 1930 Conn transitional tenor which has had modern keywork painstakingly fit to the old body tube. This is my favorite vintage of Conn for tone. If you’ve ever wanted a Conn tone without sacrificing key feel to play the 30’s keywork, this is one of those rare chances to do it. The horn is also gorgeous. I like that they picked a really clean, beautiful example to use as the shell for the overhaul.

    Keywork was fitted by a shop in Canada, and then the horn was thoroughly setup (basically overhauled ~$1650) and perfected by Aaron Barnard in Iowa. It plays GREAT!

    GS Mark II Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece – Modern, Crisp, Effortless

    $ 199

    GS Mark II Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe Mark II Copy

    This piece is clean, balanced, effortless to play, including low register and altissimo, with a medium chamber and a moderate baffle that gives it moderate brightness without getting brittle or nasal. It’s a great all-purpose tenor mouthpiece with a modern sound.

    *Demo videos and detailed info below with the GS Mark II on a Selmer Mark VI, Conn 30M, and King Super 20. 

    The GS Mark II tenor saxophone mouthpiece is an extremely precise copy of my favorite Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe Mark II tenor mouthpiece.

    What is this?

    Many players may not know much about Freddie Gregory’s Super Deluxe mouthpieces. That’s not a big surprise, as Freddie did not make that many of them, and the ones he did make are mostly still in the hands of their original owners. The few that have come up for sale over the last 5 years that I’ve seen have been priced way out of the reach of most players– typically $2400-$4000– for a mouthpiece! Which is nuts, but those who know these mouthpieces REALLY seem to be willing to pay to get one. And sadly, since Freddie died ten years ago, no more of these are available.

    The Super Deluxe model was entirely designed and made by Freddie. It was sold in four variations on the same design: Mark I, Mark II, Mark III, and Mark IV. They all have a good amount of projection, but the Mark I is darkest and the Mark IV is brightest.

    The Mark II is bright and projecting but not too bright, and it seems to be one of the most popular ones of these. The chamber is medium rather than large, which adds to the projection. The shank is long, so you can pull out on vintage horns. The Mark II sounds great on Selmers and on modern tenors like Yamaha and P Mauriat. It gives them a lot of extra character and complexity.

    The Mark II is nothing like an Otto Link, so if you’re wanting a Link-on-steriods or whatever, checkout the upcoming GS SUPERSONIC, which does just that sort of thing. The Mark II is a different beast, all its own thing.

    And for only $199 including hand facing, I hope that lots of players can enjoy this amazing and rare mouthpiece! It’s hard to beat.

  • GS RESO Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece – Dark, Spread, Lush

    $ 199

    GS RESO

    Otto Link Reso Chamber Tenor Mouthpiece

    Thanks a lot for all the kind words in the reviews about the GS RESO! They’re now being played by pros all over the world. The FG SPECIAL 7* is a copy of my favorite personal vintage tenor mouthpiece and is a really good choice for an all-purpose vintage mouthpiece that just works for all kinds of playing. The variable tip RESO (every other facing incl regular 7*) is slightly darker and has a lush, warm, gorgeous tone

    See long description below for all the details and check the GetASax Youtube Channel for lots of videos, including our new RESO vs SLANT comparison video.

    • All GS Mouthpieces are completely hand faced (table also flattened) and the facing checked at 10 points plus the tip. I only sell ones that have a correct facing, so there are no ‘bad ones,’ once you find the right tip opening for you.
    • The GS RESO FG Special 7* facing is an extremely precise copy of my favorite vintage Otto Link Reso Chamber tenor mouthpiece, which was also refaced by Freddie Gregory.
    • We also scanned, modeled, and copied a second fabulous Otto Link Reso Chamber from my collection – a an original 5 tip J.A. facing mouthpiece that had not been refaced.
    • If you buy the FG Special 7*, you get a copy of my refaced Reso Chamber, which plays dark and fat and really does the old school tenor sound well.
    • If you buy any other variation including regular 7* (not FG), you are getting the model copying the original facing Reso Chamber, which has been digitally ‘opened up’ (wider tip opening, baffle moved and slightly modified) to each authentic Otto Link tip opening. They get slightly brighter at larger tips, just like a Link, and the mouthpiece gets shorter a little (also just like a Link being faced on a machine at the factory). We can do this without creating a massive artificial baffle (you mouthpiece geeks know what I mean.)
    • The facings are either Link facings I copied from favorite mouthpieces in my collection, or facings I think are better than whatever my favorite Link facing is. You won’t pick a bad facing. The JA 5 is very free blowing and takes air surprisingly well. It would be hard to beat if you want a top quality small tip tenor piece.

    2 years in, I can say that people have been REALLY happy with their GS RESO mouthpieces. It’s a fantastic mouthpiece at any price, and under $200 hand faced, it’s pretty hard to beat.

  • GS SLANT Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece – Classic, Balanced, Beautiful

    $ 199

    GS SLANT Otto Link Florida Slant Signature Tone Edge Replica Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece

    If you’re wanting a classic, all-purpose tenor mouthpiece for jazz, it’s hard to beat the GS SLANT. If you’re a new jazz player coming from a Yamaha 4C or S80 C*, and you don’t want to completely change your embouchure, consider the SLANT in a 5* or 6 tip. It’s a great way to get into jazz tenor tone without feeling out of control. If you’re used to a larger tip, and you’re not sure what to get, it’s hard to go wrong with the SLANT 7*. We have lots of SLANT videos with HiFi audio on the GetASax Youtube channel.

    GS SLANT is an extremely precise copy of my BEST vintage Otto Link Slant Tenor mouthpiece. More precisely, it’s a copy of an original facing 7* Florida Slant Signature Otto Link Tone Edge tenor mouthpiece in perfect original condition.

    This is the version of the ‘Slant’ that nearly everybody wants. It’s the most iconic and desirable hard rubber tenor mouthpiece ever made. When I hear people describing their ideal tenor tone online, it’s most frequently a description of what a good vintage Otto Link Slant sounds like: Dark and powerful, with a good amount of focus and projection. Brightens up and projects when pushed, but never thins out. Super even across all registers. Tunes great on almost any saxophone vintage or modern. That’s what the GS SLANT gives you, for about 1/10th the cost of a comparable original vintage Otto Link Slant Tone Edge tenor saxophone mouthpiece.

    Compared to the GS RESO, the GS SLANT is a little brighter and punchier (but not too bright), and more focused (though still warm and full). It has an instantly recognizable 50’s-60’s jazz tenor tone. See below for the GS SLANT vs Vintage Slant A/B video.

    If you’re a pro looking for the best do-it-all jazz tenor mouthpiece for an affordable price, I think you’d be hard pressed to beat the GS SLANT. It really captures the magic of the original mouthpiece, and that is saying a lot. It’s the only Slant copy I’ve seen that exactly copies a vintage Slant. Even upgrading to a vintage Link Slant at 8x the price wouldn’t actually sound better! And if you’re an amateur or younger player looking for your first good mouthpiece, this gives you the chance to jump right to an excellent mouthpiece that is completely hand faced, without messing with a bunch of machine faced intermediate mouthpieces.

    To read all about GetASax.com’s very own mouthpiece project, visit: GS Mouthpieces (main page) The big idea here is to let you experience the magic of the best mouthpieces I have ever played, for a price that makes them widely accessible for the first time.

  • GS Supersonic Tenor 50’s Dukoff – Bright, Projecting, Funky

    $ 199

    Bright, projecting, funky vintage 1950’s Dukoff copy that is like an Early Babbitt Link but more fun and better sounding. The GS Supersonic tenor is an early 50’s Dukoff hard rubber piece sold under the Zimberoff House of Note brand. It is my favorite bright vintage mouthpiece – it has a more complex tone than modern ‘bright’ pieces that tend to have a big step baffle don’t sound good soft or subtoning. The Supersonic is beautiful in subtone and stays warm while cutting through. It’s more sophisticated than an Early Babbitt Link, and it sounds similar but (to me) better in every way. (People keep asking why we didn’t do an EB copy – this is why.)

    Most people will never get to play an original Zimberoff Supersonic, because they are rare and expensive, and most people who have one won’t sell it. I’ve been collecting them for 15 years, and the GS Supersonic is an extremely precise copy of my best one, which is an original 7 tip (CV Special facing). It’s a very special piece, and one of the best tenor mouthpieces I’ve played.

    This is for people who want to cut through a band (ideal for wedding bands etc), to brighten up a dark saxophone’s tone (I’m looking at you, Keilwerth), or just to scream, but without getting too shrill. If you’re in high school or college band, this makes pep band a lot more fun too on sax, because you can actually be heard rather than completely swamped by the brass.

    About facings:

    Short answer – All the facings are good. The 7 CV and the regular 7 both have the same facing. Just the CV mouthpiece itself (not facing) is about 1/2″ shorter on the shank end. If you play a GS Slant, Mark II, or Reso, the 6, 7*, 8 and 9 facings will be almost identical and will feel very familiar. The 7 facing is a little different since it copies the CV Special, but it is actually very similar to my regular 7 facing as well.

    Long answer:
    You can get a precise copy of the original piece by selecting the 7 CV version which is a shorter mouthpiece and has Charlie Ventura’s favorite 7 facing. The Dukoff Supersonic is a pretty short mouthpiece (in overall length) compared to most other hard rubber tenor pieces. On all of the other versions we offer besides CV Special, the mouthpiece you get will be longer than the original. We found that the piece plays the best if we match the overall mouthpiece length of a metal Zimberoff Dukoff / Dukoff Hollywood, which makes the mouthpiece tune well on modern horns like Yamaha, even if you have a very firm embouchure. Both pieces have identical chamber, baffle, tip and everything. Just the ‘default/recommended’ version is a longer mouthpiece overall.

  • Ishimori Wood Stone New Vintage Tenor Saxophone WST-AF with F# Antique Finish NEW

    $ 4,700

    Back in stock May 2024!  These are hard to keep in stock, but I will do my best to keep one around. Every Ishimori saxophone gets a new horn checkup, to make sure that it’s in perfect playing condition before it ships to you!

    One of the most lauded modern horns by people who like vintage horns. This is the Ishimori Wood Stone New Vintage tenor in Antique Finish (patinated bare brass) and the dark lacquer version is here: https://www.getasax.com/product/ishimori-woodstone-new-with-dark-lacquer-tenor-saxophone/ Ishimori has long been Japan’s premiere saxophone repair shop. This tenor is their attempt to bring their repair expertise to bear on saxophone design. This horn has a bore and design aesthetic reminiscent of a Selmer Super (Balanced) Action, even down to the engraving and keywork styling. But as a modern horn, it hasn’t seen decades of playing and repairs. It also comes with a good setup done by Ishimori pre-sale. This is the unlacquered version of the Ishimori Wood Stone New Vintage tenor, with beautiful Selmer SBA style hand engraving. These are popular saxophones, but I’ll try to keep one in stock if possible! Ishimori is Japan’s premiere saxophone repair shop, and Mr. Ishimori has been designing, building, and repairing saxophones for many decades.

    These tenors not only sound great, but they stand out from the crowd with their excellent new horn setup done in the Ishimori workshop. The Ishimori New Vintage tenors hold up extremely well over time, and every detail of construction and assembly is optimized for ease of play. The tone on this Ishimori tenor is meant to remind you of a vintage Selmer – to my ear, it plays like a late SBA – not as loud and wide open as some Mark VI’s, but more focused than earlier Selmers also. The neck and the engraving are meant to evoke the Selmer Super Balanced Action, so I suspect that the neck is an SBA bore. The tuning is excellent. This body tube is designed to have the high F# tone hole present, so it tunes well with the high F#, and that’s also just a convenient feature. The finish is a stable patina applied to the bare brass. While it will continue to change in appearance somewhat, it will basically look like this. You get the bare brass finish plus a great unique look to the horn that ages well – much nicer than the completely shiny unlacquered finish that Yamaha does. This looks really classy.

    Ishimori New Vintage tenors play so effortlessly, they sell themselves. Every time one comes in the shop, it sells almost immediately. There’s one in stock at the moment! Get it now!

    See below for our videos on the Ishimori New Vintage Tenor featuring some sound samples on a range of mouthpieces, and an unboxing video.

    $ 4,950

    This is a very early Eastlake King Super 20 SilverSonic tenor saxophone with solid silver neck and solid silver bell. It plays reasonably well on older pads and comes with the original case in good condition. Many players love the early Eastlakes for their huge, powerful tone and comfortable keywork. They’re also priced a lot lower than a typical Cleveland SilverSonic (despite the early Eastlakes being the exact same horn). If you want to get into a beautiful vintage professional King Silversonic tenor that doesn’t break the bank, this would be an excellent option.

  • King SilverSonic Tenor With Full Pearls 1952 Relacquered Nice Shape! 328630

    $ 11,500

    This is one of the 200 or so King ‘Full Pearls SilverSonics’ that were made (or Full Pearled SilverSonics if that’s how you learned it). This is a ‘Series II’ Full Pearls, which is the version with the later and more desirable keywork. This is the first one of these I have had for sale on the website in many years, and it is in quite good condition. It has been relacquered, and there were some dings removed before the new coat of lacquer, so you can see some waviness in the reflections around the bow area in a few places, but it’s nothing serious. The horn looks original on first inspection, because it has seen minimal buffing and the engraving is still very sharp, even on the bell key cups, which tend to be buffed harder than the bell engraving. The bell engraving almost looks untouched, and the little bit of gold missing from years of use could be restored if you want (I can point you in the right direction and arrange things for you in that case.) But I would leave it as is, as it looks great already. The pads are older, so it’s time for your favorite saxophone repairer to get this horn back to blowing the walls down again. These horns are kind of the ultimate saxophone collectible because they have both qualities that usually are mutually exclusive – they’re the best version of the Super 20 that King made, and they’re also ridiculously rare at the same time. In the early 50’s King was focused on selling brass bell Super 20 saxophones, and it seems you had to know somebody to get them to make you a SilverSonic, so it rarely happened. I don’t know of any other example of a saxophone that is the best of its class and similarly rare. The Conn saxophones in F are rare and are fun to play, but they’re not like THE best saxophone Conn ever made (that would be the rolled tone holes 10M/30M). The Mark VI C melody is similarly rare, but also not the best C melody ever made, nor particularly outstanding just in itself. But these Series II King Full Pearls Silversonics should please the person who wants both a really rare, collectible investment sort of saxophone, and the person who wants a great playing horn. Anyway, to get back to this horn, it has the original case in nice shape, and the original solid silver neck with matching serial number, also in excellent condition. Also on the website at the moment is the most perfect brass bell Series II Super 20 tenor I’ve seen. If either of these rare Kings drops of the site suddenly, it’s because I ended up being able to afford to keep them. Until then…

  • King SilverSonic Tenor with Full Pearls and Gold in the Engraving Special Order Fresh Overhaul! 406210

    $ 10,500

    This is an amazing King SilverSonic Tenor with full pearls on the side and palm keys, but with a later serial than you normally see for full pearls. Basically, this was a factory special order with the pearls – one of a handful that I have seen over the years. It has the solid silver neck and bell, the gold in the engraving on the bell, and it has a complete mechanical overhaul done by Aaron Barnard of Barnard Repair in Iowa (who does great work!). This horn had been played a lot, and it had several dings removed from the neck (which now looks great). It has the distinction of being the loudest, wildest sounding SilverSonic that I have ever played. It really goes to 11. It just blasts, and even at low volumes it feels powerful and saturated. You will absolutely fall in love with this tenor. It gets my coveted ‘exceptionally fine player’ distinction. It comes in the beautiful original case as well. Priced on the high side, but the full pearls ones always demand a premium, and this late serial full pearls is extremely rare. Only one available!

  • King Super 20 Tenor 1974 Eastlake Old Pads Great Deal! 510174

    $ 1,750

    Great deal on a pro tenor at an affordable price. This is an Eastlake King Super 20 with single socket neck, and it will blow the walls down. It has old pads and the lacquer is likely not original (but could be original, as the later ones look like this sometimes). It needs a complete overhaul right now in order to be able to play it. So you should budget (in the USA) around $1000 on top of the purchase price in order to get it all ready to make music. It is, however, a fantastic deal as is. It also has a musty smell so you would probably want a new case, or you can use a combination of sunlight and enzymatic cleaner etc to deodorize it. The smell will disappear from the sax when the pads are removed and the horn is washed and degreased in the overhaul process. But it’s priced to move, and you’ll be getting a ton of horn with modern-ish keywork, and the unbeatable King tone and projection for a bargain price.

  • Selmer Balanced Action Tenor Original Lacquer Rare Sunburst American Engraving Recent Overhaul Exceptional!

    $ 13,500

    This tenor gets my rare distinction of being an ‘exceptionally fine player’, and it also is an extremely rare and fantastic example of a very early Selmer Balanced Action tenor with an American-engraving pattern that was only used for a short period on a few tenors. I think it’s really great. This horn plays basically like a Balanced Action – warm, velvety, with a lyrical core that is obviously Selmer. But it’s a little more spread and a little darker than a Late Balanced Action, almost like it’s partly Radio Improved (my favorite vintage Selmer tone) and partly BA (my second favorite vintage Selmer tone). But it has the more comfortable BA keywork layout, so it really is a special ‘unicorn’ sort of vintage Selmer that you never see. I’ve seen one other one of these ever, and I don’t think that one was original lacquer. This tenor just got a complete overhaul done through GetASax with Italian leather Pisoni pads, and the nice made in USA reusable slightly domed brass resonators that I love on these horns. You won’t find a nicer BA, and certainly not for this price. Only one available! Includes BAM Softpack tenor case in ‘mint’ which is my favorite color.

    If you’ve been looking for a 1961 Selmer Mark VI Tenor in excellent condition for a while, and have been waiting to buy a really special one, then your wait may be over! I haven’t had one this clean and beautiful in a few years, and I don’t know when I’ll get another! The 5-digit serial Selmer Mark VI tenors have gotten pretty hard to find in clean original condition like this, and prices have been going up. This one is priced on the low side of what I’m seeing people asking at other dealers and on eBay. I was very pleasantly surprised with the condition when it arrived from the original owner. The original lacquer is almost all present, and there is no damage at all – no dents or dings, no resolders, and the original neck with matching serial number is in excellent condition with no pull down or past damage. The American engraving looks great, and the lacquer color is a gorgeous deep honey gold.

    The pads are original, and the horn still plays remarkably well on them, with a huge, powerful tone. It takes air really well and has a big sounding altissimo. It also comes in the beautiful original Chesterfield case. I love how the edge binding on this case is one continuous piece in a sort of figure 8 pattern. The 90k VI tenors have a punchy, dark, focused, powerful tone that is pretty much the tenor sound that most pro players seem to be looking for today. With a brighter mouthpiece, these things project like crazy. With an overhaul, this will be the sort of horn that you just don’t want to put down.

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1961 Relacquer Good Pads Great Deal! 95096

    $ 7,000

    This is a nice example of a Selmer Mark VI Tenor saxophone from 1961 with good pads that plays well and is priced extremely well. It’s wild that you can get a 5-digit Mark VI for not that much more than a pro Yamaha just by getting a Selmer that has a new coat of lacquer. This horn has no dents or dings, and the neck has the matching serial number. The American engraving isn’t as sharp as some relacquers, so the bell has been buffed a fair amount, but the horn feels good under the fingers and plays great with a dark, powerful, projecting tone. If you’ve been looking for a solid, great sounding vintage Selmer that is priced on the low side relatively speaking, this is a great option that you can just buy and play, and you don’t need to get overhauled. I put it in a BAM Softpack tenor case which is molded on the shape of a Mark VI, and which is great for gigging, and very safe for shipping. Only one available!

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1962 Relacquer Great Vintage 104515

    $ 5,950

    This is a great deal on a nice condition relacquered Selmer Mark VI Tenor from 1962. It’s American-engraved with original neck with matching serial number. There are no dents or dings. It had some small dents removed from the back of the body and looks great now. The pads are older, so it’s time for either a thorough playing condition job or just a fresh overhaul. It’s on consignment, so I haven’t spent any money on it, but the price is low for what you get. Usually, you’d pay around $1500 more than this for a ’62 VI which is basically a 5-digit in design, if it had a recent overhaul. This horn is a strong player even on leaky older pads, and will definitely be really great overhauled. It comes in a nice original case as well.

    Selmer Super Balanced Action Tenor 1953 Original American Engraved Great Player! 50116

    $ 15,950

    This is a beautiful original lacquer Selmer Super Balanced Action tenor saxophone with American engraving and original lacquer. It has a recent overhaul done very well in CA with red painted leather pads and slightly domed metal Selmer-style resonators, and it plays GREAT! This thing REALLY plays. I don’t want to put it down, and neither does my assistant.

    It’s in very good condition with original lacquer looking gorgeous. I don’t think any saxophone has nicer engraving than the SBA tenor. This one is the total package. I’ve seen relacquered SBA’s with old pads going for $12k online recently, and this one is original and has a high-end overhaul and no dents or dings and is priced right if what you want is a really good SBA. Whoever gets it is going to be really pleased. The tone is warm, rich, and velvety like Hank Mobley (who also played a 50xxx SBA, and who is one of my favorite tenor players to listen to). Brightens up when pushed a la Coltrane, and screams with that delicate upper register that is so characteristic of both Coltrane and Mobley (in a different way, of course). There’s nothing like a good late SBA!

    Only one available!

  • Selmer Super Balanced Action Tenor 1954 Near Mint Original Lacquer Original Pads Amazing 53933

    $ 22,500

    Well, I’m asking a lot for this one, but there hasn’t been an original pads, original case, undamaged, American-engraved, original lacquer Selmer SBA tenor on the site in quite some time, and I think it’s rare and great enough to warrant it. The nicest violins, guitars, flutes, bassoons, pianos, cellos – almost any other instrument – are all way more expensive than this, so I think it’s pretty reasonable relatively speaking. The original case is beautiful, original pads and Tone-x resonators are intact. No damage at all. This one is great!

  • Tenor Guardala + Thin Body Brilhart Reproduction Ligature for Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces

    $ 165

    Best ligature around for a Guardala (style) metal tenor mouthpiece! This gives you nice, balanced hold on the reed, which greatly improves response and reduces movement or reed swelling on the mouthpiece table. The plastic reed plate fits the reed beautifully and opens up plenty of vibration. No deadening fabrics or strings here. Plus, this is made to the highest standards in South Korea by people who care about quality saxophone equipment. It’s a true reproduction down to the materials used, of the most desirable saxophone ligature ever made.

    If you want the best ligature for a Guardala Handmade Michael Brecker 1 or 2, or a Guardala Handmade Studio, or any other metal Guardala handmade or laser cut metal tenor mouthpiece, this is it. This also fits a wide range of other slim body metal tenor mouthpieces like the Ishimori Anemos, Yanagisawa metal tenor mouthpieces and many others. For the larger body metal mouthpieces like Otto Link, get the Otto Link metal Brilhart reproduction ligature instead.

  • 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.

    Tenor Metal Otto Link Brilhart Reproduction 3 Band Ligature Berg Larsen Dukoff!

    $ 165

    Best ligature around for a metal Otto Link (and similar) tenor mouthpiece! Way better than the stock Otto Link metal top screw ligature, this gives you a much firmer hold on the reed, which greatly improves response and reduces movement or reed swelling on the mouthpiece table. The plastic reed plate fits the reed beautifully and opens up plenty of vibration. No deadening fabrics or strings here. Plus, this is made to the highest standards in South Korea by people who care about quality saxophone equipment. It’s a true reproduction down to the materials used, of the most desirable saxophone ligature ever made. This also fits larger body Berg Larsen and vintage Hollywood Dukoff tenor mouthpieces, and all Otto Link Metal-sized tenor mouthpieces, like Ted Klum Focustone Tonamax, Theo Wanne larger body metal, and many others. See the photos. For thin body metal mouthpieces, get the Guardala sized tenor ligature instead.

    If you want the best ligature for a Berg Larsen metal tenor mouthpiece, this is it. If you want the best ligature for a Dukoff Hollywood or Dukoff Stubby tenor piece, again, this is it.

    This ligature fits all metal Otto Link tenor mouthpieces also – past and present. It fits Masterlink, 4****, ToneMaster, Super ToneMaster NY, FL, Early Babbitt, and regular Babbitt-made pieces. The modern variants like the ‘New Vintage’ NY, Millennium edition etc also all fit.

    Buy with confidence. I take returns, and I stand behind this product. It’s the real deal.

  • Tenor Metal Otto Link Mouthpieces – OT-BB size all metal with BB Screws EchoMaster Ligature

    $ 165
    Introducing a new EchoMaster ligature. This is the OT-BB size that fits metal Otto Link mouthpieces and is all-metal with BB screws. This is one versatile and beautifully built ligature.
     
    It’s one ligature for almost all metal tenor mouthpieces. It also fits all Dukoff metal and Berg Larsen metal mouthpieces among many others. I took photos of almost every version of Link as well as Dukoffs and a Berg if you want to scroll through. It also fits metal Yanagisawa on the slim side, and even metal 10MFan and MacSax on the fat side. Quite useful, as you get a tight reed seal, where most Link ligatures are impossible to tighten. This one is easy.
