  • King SilverSonic Tenor Overhauled Early Eastlake 430459

    $ 5,850

    Super nice King Super 20 SilverSonic tenor in excellent condition. This horn has a fresh overhaul and plays great, with a huge, punchy, projecting tone that stays fat well up into the upper register. This is a naturally loud, bold sounding King. It sports both solid silver neck and solid silver bell with gold wash inside. These horns are hard to beat, and they are definitely undervalued at the moment! Early Eastlake (or late Cleveland) tenors like this with single socket neck are many people’s favorite version, who are looking for a beautiful vintage King with silver bell and great build quality that doesn’t cost as much as a new car. Only one available. These always sell quickly. It will come in a new BAM case for maximum protection, or if you want to buy a vintage King alligator style black and silver case, I could sell you one from my little case collection for extra.

    King Soprano Saxophone Gold Plate Fresh Overhaul Amazing! 99847

    $ 3,250

    Just freshly overhauled!! This got a full restoration, so it’s back to like new mechanical condition.This is the vintage soprano you should get!

    This amazing gold plated King soprano saxophone will blow the walls down. It is in excellent condition, with nearly all the original gold plate intact. It has just received a full overhaul and restoration, which is not a small job on a 90 year old instrument. It is now back in like-new playing condition and ready to make music for many many years to come.

    King sopranos are rare, and were only made in low pitch (regular concert pitch). They tune nicely, and have a big, warm, medium-focused tone that is less polite sounding than a Buescher, and really fills a room with ease. This example in gold plate and in such amazingly good condition is extremely rare. The great depression in 1929 spelled the end of most of the saxophone market, and marked the end of most makers building sopranos in any kind of quantities. So it’s not surprising that you don’t see a King soprano later than this serial. This is one of the very last ones made, and the latest serial I have seen. The later the better is my motto on vintage sopranos generally speaking, so getting a late one also in gold plate is really exceptional.

    King Super 20 Alto Saxophone Original Lacquer Fresh Overhaul 362420

    $ 4,500

    Great deal on a silver neck, King Super 20 with a fresh overhaul, original lacquer, and the more modern keywork version, but still with the features that are most important. Nothing else sounds like a good Super 20 alto! This one is already all overhauled and setup to perfection. You can just play it and not worry that you’re missing out. The Super 20 is as good as it gets on alto for a great jazz tone. Pair it with a Meyer 5 or 6 and a pretty soft reed for the Cannonball Adderley style tone (and practice a lot).

  • Powell Silver Eagle SE10 Alto One of 18 Made – all options solid silver +Matt Stohrer Overhau

    $ 12,000

    For your viewing pleasure, this is one of the 18 Powell Silver Eagle saxophones made. Powell conceived of an ambitious project to bring back an American-made saxophone of the highest quality. Inspired by the Super 20 SilverSonic, the Silver Eagle reproduces the bore while adding solid silver soldered tone holes and modern keywork. Powell sadly ended their project after making only 18 saxophones, despite high demand, due to the high cost of production. This horn plays like a good super 20 but a little more evenly, and has been completely overhauled by Matt Stohrer. This is the ultimate collectible among modern saxophones, and it is also a burning player. Asking price is just what these cost new, plus a little extra since it got a $1500 overhaul on top of that! It’s not even inflated for the collectibility value, which is probably not smart of me, but there it is. If you want to discuss all the details of this project, I can put you in touch with the people who built it. These were most definitely a new saxophone bore and neck design, inspired by the best King Super 20 SilverSonic altos, both according to them and according to the folks who bought the tooling and mandrels when the project ended. The keywork is modified from tooling bought from B&S, which accounts for the pinky table that sticks out farther than it would on something like a Yamaha.

    There is most certainly only one available. This one has all the possible factory options, which only a subset of Powell Silver Eagles had – including the solid silver tone holes and even cryo treatment. Of the 18 saxophones built, I know at least a couple of them were brass bell, and some others lacked other of these features. This is one of the ones with everything, which makes it even more collectible. Includes the original accessories, case, and paperwork.

    Just for fun, here’s Matt Stohrer’s repairman’s overview from when he overhauled it.
