Back-ordered. Order now to reserve yours.
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!

Martin Handcraft Soprano Original Silver Plate Near Mint + Overhauled 67718$ 3,850
Amazing example of a near mint Martin Handcraft soprano saxophone that just got a fresh high-end overhaul through GetASax. You won’t find a nicer sounding vintage soprano! The ergonomics are vintage, but pretty comfortable. I play a 68k Handcraft just like this myself. Warm, balanced, round, medium spread, good intonation, and even not very picky on mouthpiece compatibility.
Selmer Balanced Action Tenor 24461 Relacquered Freshly Overhauled Great Price$ 6,450
Selmer Mark VI Baritone 166k Original Lacquer Low A Fresh Full Overhaul Great Player$ 8,250
This one-owner Selmer Mark VI baritone saxophone has its original lacquer and goes to low A. It’s American-engraved and assembled (the more desirable version), and the original neck is also in great shape. This Selmer Mark VI baritone was pro-owned, and it played in lots of blues and funk bands all around North Carolina in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s before being put away for a few decades. I got it from the original owner, and got it completely restored with a full mechanical and cosmetic overhaul. We ultrasonically cleaned it, changed everything that can be changed, and did a full overhaul of everything, so that it feels and plays like a new instrument now. You would be hard-pressed to find a more fun Selmer Mark VI low A bari sax to play. It just responds easily, tunes easily, feels great under the fingers, and has that funky, played in look that looks legit on stage. Whether you want this for an occasional bari option, for recording, for a band, or as your new main horn, you won’t go wrong with this Mark VI bari.
