  • Conn 8M C Melody Unbelievable Condition Fresh Overhaul Original Silver Naked Lady 274636

    $ 6,000

    This is a wonderful and extremely rare example of a very late serial Conn 8M C Melody saxophone with the ‘Artist’ / ‘Naked Lady’ engraving pattern on the bell. It’s gorgeous original silver plate finish with gold wash in the bell. It just got a full top-shelf overhaul with Italian leather Pisoni pads and nice sent of screw in reusable flat metal (brass) resonators. If you want a really good C melody for less money, look for a late New Wonder II Conn – around 200k serial if you can find one. This particular late serial version is ultra-rare — I’ve only seen 7 of them ever. This is the latest one I’ve ever sold. The cool thing about the later Conn C melody saxophones is that the tone opens up and gets really big and projecting like a tenor. If you use a GS RESO C Melody mouthpiece on this horn, you can get a tone that you just can’t get on any other type of saxophone. It’s in C but it’s fat and full and open like a tenor, but it concert pitch. Nothing else sounds like this. I had Tyler do a demo with one of my Conn C melodys and the GS RESO, so that you can get a basic idea of what it can sound like. Tyler had never played a C melody before, so I think he did pretty well for his first time!

    Conn Art Deco Transitional NWII / 10M Tenor Original Silver Plate Recent Overhaul 244566

    $ 4,500

    This is a players Conn tenor – recently overhauled really well, and pads are still fresh. Original satin silver plate with gold wash in the bell. It’s been played a lot, because it plays well!  The fresh overhaul feels great under the fingers. This is a horn that needs nothing and plays its best right out of the case. It has flat metal reso-techs and Pisoni leather pads, strap hook moved for balance, and the desirable art deco engraving.

    The 238-247k serial range is among the most prized among tenor players who love Conns. These tenors have a huge sound like the New Wonder II, but some key work and tuning improvements looking toward the 10M. This is a really fine playing example that should make anyone happy who wants a huge Conn tone on a horn that they don’t have to overhaul or plan on spending any money on anytime in the near future. Only one available!

  • Couf Superba 1 Tenor Rare Original Silver Plate Early Serial Big Player! 65988

    $ 4,250

    New photos coming soon when the overhaul is done beginning of April 2022.

    This is one of the first Couf Superba 1 tenors made, and it was picked out by a guy who worked with Herb Couf to make the Superba 1 a reality. It was used on a Philip Glass recording along the way, and then played a bunch of jazz. It has original lacquer over the original silver plate (very rare finish for a Keilwerth), and where the lacquer is flaking off, the silver is tarnishing. This thing is/was a big player on old pads, but I am now getting it completely overhauled, which is now included in the price.  You’d be hard pressed to find a bigger sounding tenor for the money. The tone of the Superba 1 is dark like an SBA, but wider like a Conn, and it stays fat in the palm keys unlike a Selmer. Plus it has modern keywork. This tenor was on consignment, but I bought it so I could overhaul it. These horns are so good that Tyler, who does the GetASax YouTube channel, picked his Superba 1 out of all the horns that came through the shop over a period of years, as being the best one. You can hear Tyler’s Couf Superba 1 on the GetASax YouTube channel in several of the videos. The Superba 1 is one of those sleeper tenors that you don’t hear as much about for how good it is. Definitely recommended! Vintage tone + modern keywork + top build quality = what everybody wants.

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

    $ 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.
  • GS Mark II Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece

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

    $ 199

    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 eight years ago, no more of these are available. (Till now.)

    Freddie is known both for refacing and for making his own mouthpieces. The original Super Deluxe Mark II is not a refaced mouthpiece made by someone else , the way my favorite Reso Chamber tenor mouthpiece is. 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. We may copy my favorite Mark IV someday as well, but I wanted to start with the Mark II because it’s bright and projecting but not too bright, and it seems to be one of the most popular ones of these. Bob Mintzer played one of these for a long time, and may still from time to time. I know he has a lot of Freddie’s pieces. Jeff Coffin plays a Mark IV, which sounds a whole lot like the Mark II that we copied for this project (Jeff was kind enough to make several audio comparison samples of the GS Mark II and his Freddie Mark IV, and they are definitely more similar than different.) Steve Neff has some original Mark II sound clips on his website here. We will do some videos as soon as Tyler is finished with the GS New York alto videos he’s working on.

    OK so that should be fairly clear now: The GS Mark II is an extremely precise copy of my favorite Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe Mark II, which is a different design from anything that Otto Link or Berg Larsen or Dukoff made etc. Along with the Mark IV, it’s his most popular design for sure.

    How does it play?

    Describing the tone is hard, because people probably haven’t played one of these. They’re also not that similar to other common mouthpieces like Meyer, Dukoff, or Berg Larsen. It’s different from any model of Otto Link, and is not a redesigned Link chamber at all. The baffle curves from nearly flat at the tip rail, into the chamber in a smooth curve, and the throat opens out into a medium-large chamber. Chamber volume is similar to a metal Otto Link, so it tunes great on basically any saxophone. The shank is long enough that you can pull out on a Conn 10M or something that wants a large mouthpiece volume, and it works well. The side walls start out nearly straight and are more scooped as it moves into the chamber. The magic in these pieces is in the baffle, and we spent a long time getting that just right.

    Tonally, my best attempt at a verbal description would be to say that this has a more projecting tone than a GS Slant or a vintage Otto Link, but it kind of opens out and gets wider and more robust as you push it. Some mouthpieces get more shrill the more air you put into them. The GS Mark II gets more lush and almost ‘operatic’ as you push it. It’s really fun to play. If you want something different from a Link style tenor mouthpiece, and you want a piece that is brighter but not too bright, and that has plenty of power and projection when pushed without getting thin and shrill, that’s what the GS Mark II really does well.

    Facing Information:

    Freddie’s facing curves are usually about .001″ more open than the equivalent Otto Link, so we are reproducing his curves on the GS Mark II. The original that we copied was a 7 measuring .101″ and I also have a 7* and 8 that we used for the .106″ 7* and the .111″ 8 tip. As an interesting side note, most Freddie 8’s are actually stamped 7**, but I think that’s probably because he had them stamped 7* and then would just add another star for an 8. I’ve seen that enough times now to think it’s definitely intentional. They always seem to measure .111-.112″ for me, and we settled on .111″ as it’s closer to what people are used to in an 8.

    A word on price: People are *constantly* telling me that I should raise the prices of the GS Mouthpieces. However, they are intended to be a service to the saxophone community, so that as many players as possible can get a great mouthpiece that is entirely faced by hand and that plays as well as a much more expensive original. The GS Mark II tenor mouthpiece would probably sell almost as well at double the price, but we will be keeping the price $199 as long as possible, because that’s the whole point of the project.

  • GS RESO Otto Link Reso Chamber Replica Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece (All Facings)

    $ 199

    **Update: Due to strong demand, I’m about a week behind on hand facing these mouthpieces for sale. However, regardless of which shipping option you pick, I’ll upgrade you to express 2 day shipping – or FedEx International Priority shipping if you’re overseas. So even though it’ll take me a week to make your mouthpiece, you’ll still receive it surprisingly quickly, especially internationally.

    I’m very excited to present GetASax.com’s very own mouthpiece project: 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.

    This mouthpiece is a very precise copy of my personal Otto Link Reso Chamber tenor mouthpiece, which was faced by the great Freddie Gregory to a perfect 7*. It’s medium dark, but not too dark, with moderate focus, and gets punchy without thinning out when pushed. Balanced and responsive, it’s one of the best all-around tenor mouthpieces I’ve played. Even if you normally play brighter pieces, the GS Reso is worth having in your arsenal. It’s ideal for jazz, beautiful on ballads, and can handle burning bebop tenor lines like a champ. The facing is just right. Subtone is effortless, response is quick. Altissimo pops right out. It’s very free blowing and takes air extremely comfortably. The 7* .105″ tip opening is very comfortable. Newer players can easily manage it with a 2.5 reed. And for pros, it slots right in with a Rigotti 3 light to 3.5 medium. (I like the Rigotti 3 light personally.)

    The computer model we developed for the Reso is accurate down to .001” compared to my original Reso Chamber. Each mouthpiece gets carefully hand faced, precisely measured, and tested, so that it really is totally right! Bottom line: You get the equivalent of a $1500+ vintage mouthpiece for only $199. People keep saying we should charge more, but the whole idea from the start has been to make the best mouthpieces widely accessible, not to maximize profits. A lot of people have never played a really good mouthpiece. It’s time to change that. 

    Using cutting-edge tech, we went through over 50 prototypes so that now every one of these sounds like the original.

    When you select any tip opening other than the FG SPECIAL 7*, then you will be getting a Reso Chamber built from my original facing Reso Chamber. The reason for this is pretty easy to explain: Otto Link manufactured mouthpiece ‘blanks’ with a zero tip opening. Then they opened them up from a closed tip to whatever tip opening they wanted. In order to give you different tip openings authentically, we needed to do it the same way. So we started with a smaller tip Reso Chamber, and then we used Otto Link facing curves to carefully model ‘opening’ the 5 tip to whatever facing you want, just like if it were done on a facing machine. We also move the baffle work to the appropriate position like on a hand finished piece. This Reso Chamber mouthpiece is unbelievably good. It is just as rich and complex as the FG SPECIAL RESO, but it plays just a little brighter, and the mouthpiece itself is also a little longer (Otto Link used a couple of different molds to make the Reso Chamber model.) It’s the one that Steve Neff reviews here. So if you normally have to pull out a lot to tune, or you want just a little more punch than the FG SPECIAL RESO while remaining basically dark and rich, that’s what you get!

    If you want an exact copy of the Reso Chamber Joe Allard Facing that we scanned, including the J.A. stamp on the table and the more rounded tip profile, then select the 5 JA facing. It measures .081″ or so and takes air nicely. The smaller tip GS RESO mouthpieces are perfect for concert band or ensemble tenor settings. If you’re coming from a Yamaha 4C or Vandoren and want something richer, warmer, and more interesting, consider one of the smaller tip GS RESO models. They are excellent all-purpose tenor mouthpieces.

     

    Material:

    GS Mouthpieces are made of a premium biocompatible dental resin, and printed at an especially high resolution. You don’t see messy print lines everywhere, because the print is so high quality! This dental resin is designed to be in your mouth, so it’s ideal for a mouthpiece.

    The density and the hardness are almost identical to vintage hard rubber! So GS Mouthpieces vibrate like hard rubber and feel familiar and comfortable to play. The resin is also extremely durable. I have dropped the prototypes on hardwood again and again, and they just bounce and are fine. They even survive being dropped onto concrete (for a while)! So if you’re hard on equipment, this mouthpiece should be able to take quite a beating and hold up well over time.

    Finishing:

    Each GS Reso gets carefully hand faced and finished before coming to you. This is super important. The magic of a mouthpiece is in the facing. If you buy a generic, mass-produced mouthpiece, chances are the table is not flat and the facing is uneven between the side rails. As a result, the reed vibrates unevenly. It feels stuffy and dead, resistant, and all-around disappointing to play. SO many people have this problem, whether they know it or not. I don’t know how many players I’ve helped to get their first actually good mouthpiece, and all of a sudden playing is fun!

    Since we flatten the table, you get an easy reed seal. There are no print lines or marks messing up the facing. It’s smooth and perfect like a boutique mouthpiece. The facing is also finished by hand, which is a BIG plus. I’m really picky about this, so I learned to do it myself so I could be sure these pieces were actually the same as my Freddie Gregory-faced Reso Chamber. Each facing is measured at ten points to make sure that it is even and consistent throughout. 

    Mouthpiece facings are unforgiving. Small problems can make a big difference in playability. Unlike any other mouthpiece of its kind or anywhere near its price, each one of these GS mouthpieces goes out the door only when it is faced just right. Every one is as good as the best mouthpieces I have played.

    I have been collecting mouthpieces seriously for over ten years now, and I have been saving the very best ones over that time. I currently have about 750 pieces, and of those there are about 20 that I think are in that Holy Grail category. Those are the mouthpieces that will be coming out in the GS Mouthpieces line. Keep an eye on this, if you want to put together a collection of the best playing saxophone mouthpieces ever, while keeping costs to a minimum. Each one has a magic of its own, and each one gives you a unique and beautiful tone and response that makes it a joy to play! 

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

    $ 199

    **Update: Due to strong demand, I’m about a week behind on hand facing these mouthpieces for sale. However, regardless of which shipping option you pick, I’ll upgrade you to express 2 day shipping – or FedEx International Priority shipping if you’re overseas. So even though it’ll take me a week to make your mouthpiece, you’ll still receive it surprisingly quickly, especially internationally.

    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 only 15% the cost of an 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 bright), and more focused (though still warm and full). It has an instantly recognizable 50’s-60’s jazz tenor tone. We’ll post hi-fi sound samples of the GS SLANT on a variety of brands of saxophone very soon! 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.

    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!

This is the version with the more modern LH pinky (spatula) keys, but that still has ‘full pearls’ on all the key touches, double socket, solid-silver neck, and engraved bell keys. It has had a recent repad, and I just got it freshly checked out and setup, so it’s playing quite well. There aren’t many original lacquer Super 20’s from this most desirable serial range in the world. Far fewer than people realize! There are about 10x as many 5-digit Mark VI’s as there are full pearls Super 20’s.

  • King Super 20 Tenor Saxophone Series III Silver Neck Overhauled 364611

    $ 4,750

    Original lacquer King Super 20 tenor in great shape. This also had a recent overhaul by Aaron Barnard and plays great. It would be hard to find a nicer Super 20 for much less money. The ‘Series III’ Super 20’s (as we call them) come right after the ‘full pearls’ series II’s, and are different from the previous version in that they have completely upgraded keywork that feels more modern. The left hand spatula keys are now a lot more like a Selmer, and the stack keys are ergonomically easier too. The tone is much the same as a Series II. Still warm, complex, powerful, fat in the upper register and super projecting. Just slightly brighter than a Series II in my experience, though you can change that easily with mouthpiece choice. The neck is solid sterling silver and has the double socket. The Series III’s are basically like a Series II but less expensive, mostly just because you don’t have the side key pearls. Same quality build and tone, but for thousands of dollars less. That makes this a smart buy in my opinion! Plus Aaron’s high-end overhaul is about a $1500 value and has basically no miles on it.

    The Martin Tenor is loud, punchy, medium dark, and built like a tank. It is a great rock and roll horn, and sounds wicked with a higher baffle mouthpiece. Or play ballads on it with your GS SLANT or GS RESO. This one had a recent high end overhaul, and plays effortlessly. The original lacquer is in beautiful shape as well. This is a rare opportunity to buy a The Martin Tenor that is playing RIGHT, and that has a really nice, snappy, dry pad feel that is how these really should feel to play. Low register is effortless. Altissimo pops without sounding thin. There’s a reason why Martin sold these with a 50 year warranty. They really are built to last. They’re way undervalued for what you get. That won’t last a whole lot longer, in my opinion.

  • Selmer Balanced Action Tenor 24461 Relacquered Freshly Overhauled Great Price

    $ 6,450
  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1956 Relacquer Clean Condition Great Deal 65412

    $ 7,000

    I’ve seen other dealers selling equivalent and worse looking horns for $8000+, so I think this is a great deal for this 5 digit Mark VI tenor from 1956. It’s American-engraved with original neck with matching serial number. There are no dents or dings, and the older pads are still sealing. This isn’t freshly overhauled, so plan on getting it overhauled by the repairman of your choice if you want to get 100% of its potential. However, I thought someone might want to grab it for a lower price rather than have me get it overhauled and sell it higher. If you’d like it plus overhaul, we can definitely discuss that. I’m always getting lots of horns overhauled, and this could be the next one in line with one of my repairmen if that’s what works best for you.

    Or just get it tuned up a bit and play it on the older pads. They’re in that phase where they still seal pretty well, but replacing a few of them and selling this as ‘good playing condition’ would not really be worth doing, as you may or may not gain added value from that. If it were mine to play, I’d get it overhauled all at once, but if you’re on a budget, you could spend $200 or so on it and it would play quite well I think.

    Condition wise, it’s worth mentioning that it was definitely buffed when it was relacquered – the bell engraving is still visible for sure, but it was originally very deeply cut at this serial range, and the palm key tone holes are shorter than they were originally because of buffing. It still tunes fine up top, but I would be remiss not to tell you anything that I can see on the condition.

    If you’re looking for a VI tenor from basically the best serial range, with a big, dark, powerful, focused tone, great ergonomics, good intonation, and that costs a lot less than most VI’s, and is mechanically in quite good shape, then that’s what this is.

    Selmer Mark VI Tenor 77158 Original Lacquer Very Good Condition Great Deal! 1958

    On Trial May 17 2022

    It would be hard to find a better deal on a Mark VI tenor at the moment. This horn just got tuned up by Aaron Barnard in Cedar Rapids (great repairman), and it plays effortlessly with a big, powerful tone. The tone is medium dark, and focused with lots of power. It brightens up when pushed, but this is the sort of tone that people love in a good 80k Mark VI. It sounds a lot like my 81k. The only reason this isn’t priced about $3k higher is that it had a neck pickup removed, and has had a few minor past repairs. That doesn’t matter when Aaron does the pickup-ectomy, because he puts a ‘flush plug’ in that matches the curve of the brass inside and outside. It’s like the pickup was never there. Besides that, this was a one owner horn, and it was played a lot but well cared for. The only other past repairs I see are a few dings removed from the back of the body tube and bow (bow ones are basically invisible, and the back of the body ones look like a tiny cloudy spot, for example above the serial number). And the bell flare had a crease removed and is in the correct contour now and feels just fine. Neck is in great shape aside from the lacquer loss from when the pickup was installed in the first place. As repairs go, none of these is very serious, and the horn plays just how it should.

    For an original lacquer 1958-59 VI, you’d typically have to pay a lot more than this. I’m pricing this one on the low side for what it is, so that someone can get a relative bargain on it. The market is a bit confusing to folks right now, with people on eBay and some private websites listing horns for 3-5x their actual value. I’m not going to do that. But I’ll tell you this horn would be priced much higher elsewhere, and it is an excellent value if you’re looking for tone, and not cosmetic perfection, but you want a horn in good shape, from a great vintage and serial number, and with original lacquer. That’s what this is. There’s only one available, so get it before it’s gone.

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor Old Varitone Fully Engraved + AfterMarket Silver Plate Job Big Player 141570

    $ 6,000

    This is a really powerful Mark VI tenor that was one-owner, and well played and loved its entire life so far. The original owner had the varitone pickup system removed from the bell, and he then had the horn fully engraved, neck to bell flare by Sherry Huntley, and then silver plated. It has the Selmer factory pickup port still present in the neck, which you could use for recording or to run through effects pedals if you want to, and it would work great. Or just ignore it and it plays like a regular Mark VI. The current pads are medium way through their usable life. This horn was frequently maintained by a local shop here, including just a few weeks ago, and they are still sealing well. If you want a powerful, medium bright Mark VI tenor that also turns heads with its silver plate finish and full engraving, and you want that all for a low price, since the silver is aftermarket, that’s what you’re getting. It’s a great value in a Mark VI, because this horn has always been well cared-for, and it had a ton of money put into it in the engraving (+$750 or more) plus the plating (+$2k at least).

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor Worn Original Lacquer 1967 140547 Great Deal!

    $ 6,750

    This is a chance to get a worn original VI from 1967 with older pads for a bargain price (for a VI). This vintage of Mark VI tenor tends to have a TON of projection and power. The tone is medium between bright and dark –  not super dark, not super bright and thin. Depending on mouthpiece, you can take it in lots of directions. This was owned by the same guy for the past several decades. He played it a lot because it plays well. It’s time for a fresh overhaul on it, in my opinion, so if you like the worn look on a Selmer, and you want it original lacquer, and you want to be able to afford to overhaul it your way, but not be into it for too much money, then that’s what this is.

  • Selmer Super Action 80 Series II Tenor Like New Overhauled 2 Necks! 435k

    $ 5,750

    This is a mint, like new Selmer Series II tenor that just got a full high end overhaul through GetASax. It has the extra neck octave pip/’harmonic key’ for easier altissimo, and it WORKS! It also comes with a second, silver plated Series II neck if you want to compare and contrast. This horn came new in the plastic, but it’s a 435k serial, so that’s why I went ahead and completely overhauled it. The dry, thin original Selmer pads were going to give you a lackluster playing experience, and I felt like it really deserved the full treatment. If you’ve been wanting a Series II tenor with all the bells and whistles, that responds better than new, and that will hold up better than a new one, this is it! Plus the harmonic key really is a useful feature. I’m impressed!

  • Selmer Super Sax / Radio Improved / Balanced Action Tenor NECK Fair Condition Hard to Find!

    $ 1,150

    From the collection of Adam Niewood, this is a very hard to find original neck for a Selmer tenor saxophone from the 1930’s. Comparing it to others in my collection, I’d say it’s probably from a Super Sax or late New LargeBore, which on tenor means approximately 14k-17k serial number. It has a patch on the bottom of the neck where the braze needed to be repaired. I just got that done by Aaron Barnard in Cedar Rapids (who is superb at this), and it’s now looking and playing its best. If you have a Super Sax or Radio Improved with no neck, then this would be an essential article to get. It’s well worth the price. You never see these for sale.

  • SML Gold Medal 1 Tenor Original Lacquer Deluxe Engraving Gorgeous 17481

    $ 5,350

    This is the SML that is the most desirable of all in my book. Only in a narrow serial range right around this, did they have the fancy engraving all over the bell including inside. This is the coveted Gold Medal 1 with all the touted features that set this model apart, and with rolled tone holes and new pads. This sax is original lacquer, excellent condition. It would be quite hard to find a better gold medal tenor.

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

    $ 165

    Best ligature around for a Guardala (style) metal tenor mouthpiece!

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.

    Best ligature around for a metal Otto Link (and similar) tenor mouthpiece!

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.

  • Yamaha YTS-62III Professional Tenor Saxophone Brand NEW with Warranty and Pro Setup

    $ 3,798

    The YTS-62III Tenor saxophone from Yamaha is the go-to, top recommended first professional tenor from most teachers and band directors I have talked to over the years. Again and again online, someone asks something like, “We want to get our daughter/son a good saxophone. Our budget is around $3750. What should we get?” The most common answer is basically always a Yamaha 62 tenor. Why? It just works. It’s a professional horn that is extremely reliable and made in Japan, with excellent build quality, great intonation, and a top quality factory setup. You can use virtually any mouthpiece on it, and it will still tune well. That lets you take the (admittedly rather vanilla) tone in myriad directions. Yamaha is a conservative company, and their crowd pleaser YTS-62III tenor saxophone is meant to get the job done without over-determining the tone. It’s clear, medium bright, and round. Not too loud and in your face, not very dark or too bright. Not very smoky or complex. But you can add most of that back in with a well-chosen mouthpiece.

    It’s hard to keep these horns in stock, as Yamaha has been backordered on them for a long time. I have some more coming in pretty soon (Maybe June 2022) These come with a new horn checkup before they go to you, meaning my (experienced/skilled/picky) repairman makes sure that the horn plays like it should. Often there are 2 or three little tweaks that take the horn from good to great, and that’s actually a big added value to you to have us do that before you get it. Most of the differerces between new horns of the same model at a store are due to the lack of a good new horn checkup.

    Yamaha YTS-875S Tenor Saxophone Silver Plate Near Mint Condition Fresh Setup

    $ 3,750

    SUPER clean example of a Yamaha Custom 875 Tenor in original silver plate. This came from a collection of amazing saxophones and barely got played. It has been babied its entire life so far. There’s a pin point ding in the back of the bow that you might never notice. Otherwise it’s like new. I just had this fully setup, and the pads are sealing really well. My first pro tenor was one exactly like this, which I bought new. This brings back fond memories of playing that horn. It tunes great, and it is among the darkest sounding Yamaha tenors ever made. With a Link style mouthpiece, you can get a real Wayne Shorter sort of vibe on this. I used a metal Yanagisawa piece back in the day, and it sounded really good. These are extremely well built, and comfortable to play. Easy to own. I had the spring tension setup properly on this one, so that it doesn’t feel too stiff, like they sometimes do. It’s much better.

  • Yanagisawa TWO2 Tenor Saxophone New in the plastic T902

    $ 4,350

    Yanagisawa TWO2 Tenor Saxophone brand new (formerly T902) is a professional saxophone for an absolutely bargain price in solid bronze.  It’s also the best built modern saxophone. It just happens to also be affordable. This horn got a new horn checkup after arriving at the GetASax shop. Having a world class repairman take a look at a new saxophone fresh from the factory can often take it from good to great. There are typically 2 or 3 small tweaks that need done, and presto – you get the full experience of what the horn can do. Besides the excellent price, that’s a real selling point, I think. I wish my first new saxophone had been checked out. I suffered with too stiff spring tensions for years in college, without even realizing that I could easily have had that fixed. I know better now!
