  • 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 Mark VI Alto Original Lacquer Good Condition Old Pads Relacquered Neck 197380

    $ 4,350

    Good deal on this original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto. It looks to me like the neck was relacquered at some point, which was done well. As a result, you can save some money on this alto, despite the fact that the neck’s getting a new coat of paint shouldn’t affect anything about the saxophone’s playability. (Relacquering tends to affect things like the key fit of the body of the sax, or sometimes the tone holes, but these are not issues on a neck.)

    This sax is on consignment, and I haven’t been able to overhaul it myself, but for this price, you can have your favorite repair shop overhaul it and still come out thousands below the price of a new Selmer, for something that sounds better!

  • Yamaha YSS-62 Purple Logo Soprano Saxophone Great Deal! 10884

    $ 3,150

    This is a great deal on an original lacquer Yamaha YSS-62 ‘Purple Logo’ soprano saxophone. This Yamaha 62 soprano sax has some regular ‘honest wear’ from use, with some scratches, but it is in nice condition besides that, and it is priced low to sell quickly. This one is on consignment, so I haven’t gotten it completely overhauled as I often do on Yamaha 62 sopranos. They are easy to work on, and your local repairer will be excited to overhaul this one for you. The original pads are from the early 1980’s so it’s definitely time to replace them. However, the price is so low that you can get that done and still come out way ahead of either an overhauled YSS-62 or a new YSS-82 (which is basically a reissue of the 62). The 62 is the most popular modern soprano saxophone for sure. No other soprano from 40 years ago retains nearly the number of enthusiastic follwers. The reason is simple – it has a rich, warm, interesting tone, modern keywork, and it plays in tune. That’s actually asking a lot of a soprano saxophone, which is proverbially difficult to play in tune. The Yamaha doesn’t make it effortless, but it takes away most of the effort, and a decent mouthpiece can get you much of the rest of the way there. Whether you’re playing this at church, with an R&B band, or in a classical saxophone quartet, you’ll sound great on this horn. Only one available!
