  • Conn 6M VIII Alto Saxophone PreWar 300088 Original Lacquer Excellent Condition

    $ 2,850

    BEAUTIFUL example of an original lacquer ‘Pre-war’ Conn 6M VIII Alto saxophone in extremely fine original condition with old pads. This horn had one dent removed from the body tube (nearly invisible now), and other than that, it’s about as clean an example as you are ever likely to find. These altos remain an absolute bargain. They’re among the best playing alto saxophones ever made, with a bigger, wider, more powerful tone than almost anything out there. And yet the keywork is very fast and comfortable, and the intonation is excellent. It’s the perfect lead alto horn. It’s also made in USA at the height of US manufacturing, and has a build quality that has hardly been matched since. This is the desirable version with the VIII stamped neck, which tends to sell for more than the later versions without the stamp. They’re all great, so if you’re on a budget, check out the beautiful 320k post war example that is also for sale.

  • Selmer Mark VI Alto 1964 Near Mint Original Lacquer Original Pads 116897

    $ 7,950

    This is a REALLY clean original lacquer, original pads Selmer Mark VI alto from 1964. Matt Stohrer uses this horn on is Stohrer Music channel to go over what an original Selmer Mark VI factory pad job and setup looks like. It’s that clean. It had one ding removed from the back of the bow, and there are no dents or dings now, and no past repairs. The neck has matching serial number and is also in excellent condition. This horn sat in the case for almost its entire life so far, as it was owned by a clarinet player who only used it occasionally. It still plays pretty well on the original pads. It has a dark, focused, powerful, tenor-like tone that only the ’63-’64 altos have, and that many Selmer aficionados have also noted about these horns. It has some interesting coloration in the lacquer just from sitting against the case and the lacquer aging differently depending upon which parts made contact with the case and which did not. If you want a time capsule Selmer Mark VI alto from one of my favorite years, that’s what this is. Only one available!

  • Selmer Supreme Alto Open Box Near Mint – Dark Lacquer + New Horn Checkup

    $ 7,750

    On hold till Nov 16. One more of these is available now by request though. One month old Selmer Supreme alto in dark lacquer finish. This got a GetASax new horn checkup and is playing REALLY well. I have to say, I’m pleasantly surprised with the tone quality and intonation of the Supreme. It’s better than a Series II in both categories. The engraving looks great too. I was prepared not to like it, and it won me over. This one has been demoed out of the case a few times, and has maybe 4 hours play time on it since new, total. These are back ordered over a year in most places, and the dark lacquer version is the most back-ordered of all, as it’s the best looking one. It comes with the Selmer mouthpiece and the new Supreme case made by BAM France that is also pretty slick.

  • Theo Wanne MOKSHA Alto Rare and Super Deluxe Mantra – Fully Engraved 20003

    $ 3,500

    Theo Wanne Moksha alto made mostly of titanium! This was an exciting new model that Theo Wanne wanted to make, but it was too expensive to make. The matching alto and tenor final prototypes were sold by Theo, and they’re on consignment here for the original owner. These have brass keys, titanium bell and body tube, and lots of engraving. They also have ‘tone bridges’ that you can install or leave off as you like, that give an extra connection between neck and body tube, tube and bow etc.

  • Yamaha YSS-62R Soprano Early Version Near Mint Amazing Condition 10045

    $ 4,450

    This is an absolutely amazing example of a Yamaha 62R soprano. These are among the best overall soprano saxophones ever. They have a combination of warm, complex tone, great intonation, comfortable keywork, and also rarity. And this is probably the nicest, completely original example that I have ever seen. The pads are entirely original, and there is no lacquer wear. The case is great. You won’t find a nicer example, and this one is also priced to sell.

  • Yanagisawa SilverSonic A9933 Alto Saxophone Fresh Setup Excellent Player! 260027

    $ 4,950

    Freshly back from a full setup and cleaning. This is a great playing Yanagisawa alto! You can get the silver neck and bell for around the price of a regular brass one by buying used. The pads are in great shape, the horn is clean. The only blemish I see is a line of lacquer missing inside the bell flare which I only noticed after a careful inspection. I guess the bell flare had a mild crease that was removed, or just some wear from using a neck bag.
