  • King Super 20 SilverSonic Tenor 675165 Near Mint Original Lacquer

    $ 3,650

    Can you find a more perfect late SilverSonic Tenor? No you cannot. This is SUPER clean – almost new old stock condition. Original pads have hardly been used, and it still plays surprisingly well on them, despite their being over 50 years old. The solid silver bell is gorgeous with its glowing gold wash inside. Nothing looks quite as good as these King bells. Silver neck is also perfect. What a time capsule. This was saved in a small collection by a pro tenor player. He double bagged the cases and just put the horns in the closet and left them for like 50 years! The matching alto sold already. This tenor is a superb deal. It plays medium bright, and has lots of projection. Feels great under the fingers. Super loud and punchy when pushed. You can cut through a band. This would be a great performing instrument if you need to play over a section or project over some guitars and drums. Looks amazing on stage as well. Priced super reasonably, and the price is firm.

  • Selmer Mark VI Baritone Low A Near Mint 262323 Original Pads

    $ 12,500

    This is about as close to buying a new Selmer Mark VI low A baritone saxophone as you are likely to find. It’s the nicest one I’ve ever seen! All original. No dents or dings or resolders. I had a small dent removed from the back of the neck that is now completely smooth and almost looks perfect again. It’s astounding how amazingly nice this horn is. It’s all original pads, one owner, completely babied its entire life. It tunes well, and it has a beautiful, rich tone. I’m tempted to just keep this and play it! What a saxophone!

    Yamaha SILVER YSS-82ZRS Soprano Saxophone Near Mint Condition Setup Excellent 3195

    $ 4,500

    This is a mint condition Yamaha YSS-82ZRS soprano. The Yamaha 82ZRS is basically a reissue of the popular Yamaha 62 soprano. The silver versions were the most desirable of the Yamaha YSS-62R on which the 82ZR is based. So if you have always wanted to get a Yamaha YSS-62RS this is nearly identical, but with some upgraded keywork. The main changes are that the left hand pinky (spatula) keys are now easier to operate and the palm keys are a little more comfortable. Yamaha tells me that the bore and dimensions of the 82ZR are exactly the same as the 62R, and on purpose. It is meant to be a modern reissue of the enormously popular 62R. With the 62R, Yamaha finally broke with the Selmer Mark VI soprano tonal concept and do something warmer, rounder, and more pleasant. It became an instant classic. There’s a big demand for more of these, so Yamaha helpfully rose to the occasion.

    The reason that the 62R/82ZR is so popular is the combination of one piece design – no neck joint to lose air or resonance – and the warm, complex tone that these horns get. And the bent neck, which brings the horn down onto the neck strap for added comfort. Branford Marsalis plays this model, and sounds wonderful on it. I think he helped with the keywork improvements also. In short, it’s probably the best modern soprano available: Lightest, most resonant, very in tune, most comfortable to play, best long term investment. It’s a modern classic.

    If like me, you have always wanted one of these horns in silver, now is your chance.

    Yamaha YSS-82ZRS one piece, bent neck soprano in mint condition.  This is basically a reissue of the YSS-62RS soprano, and it sounds the same or better (being nearly brand new) once it’s all setup with the right key heights and spring tensions like this one is. This will be collectible someday, as they always have a 6 month wait to buy one on special order and are sold in small numbers.
