  • Selmer Balanced Action Alto Saxophone Fresh Full Overhaul! Silver Plate

    $ 5,350

    This is an amazing, fully restored Selmer Balanced Action alto. It just got a wonderful high-end overhaul, complete with some spot plating on some keys and by the thumb hook on the body tube where the silver had begun to wear. This is one gorgeous alto, with the rare British market two-tone finish, and gold wash bell. It plays extremely well, with a warm, powerful voice that is effortlessly lyrical and makes you not want to put it down. If you want an alto that people are going to want to listen to, this is the one. It has high-end reusable domed brass resonators and sounds very good on them. Keywork is nice and snappy, and ‘dry’ under the fingers, like it should be. This comes with a new BAM Softpack alto case, or you can swap that for a Cabine for +$100. These British market Balanced’s are my favorite finish on vintage Selmers, and they are few and far between.

    Best playing Selmer alto sax on the site right now. It has that extra special something that only the 140-145k altos have. Super projection, crisp but still warm tone, even scale with fuller palm keys than usual. GREAT, world-class alto saxophone. It’s worn original lacquer, and I like the strap hook mod to make the horn balance slightly better. If you want one of the better playing altos in the world, get this. It’s priced very low for what you get.

  • Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone Original Gold Plate (Vanishingly Rare) Japanese Market Near Mint 156928

    Possibly the nearest to new condition original gold plate Selmer Mark VI in the world. Email serious inquiries to [email protected] This might be a keeper for me, because it is also in the best serial range for altos to play well. Plus it’s an original Japanese market horn, which is rarely seen. One of a kind.

  • Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone Original Lacquer High F# 71815 the Best!

    $ 7,750

    This is a beautiful, original lacquer Selmer Mark VI alto from 1958, which is a great year for VI altos. It has the desirable ‘early medium bow’ which is also what I play. This is the only vintage of 5-digit alto that has the best bow length for tuning the low register. Not that that’s super essential in a VI alto – the ones immediately after this (long bow) also are great altos, and the earlier ones (short bow) are also fine. It only becomes an issue if you are playing classical sax, small tip opening, or exposed ensemble playing with a lot of low B and C etc. In those cases, this sax stands out as having better intonation, combined with the medium dark, focused, complex woody tone of the ’58-59 vintage of VI altos. My personal 84xxx plays just like this 71xxx. This horn has the high F# which is a nice plus for most alto players. It just got a thorough playing condition job done by Matt Stohrer, and it plays well on the current mix of pads. The tone is just beautiful, and response is nice too. It’s priced very well, compared to most other nice-looking, original lacquer VI altos from this vintage. If you want to own the best, this is it!

    Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone Original Overhauled Excellent! 165069

    $ 6,950

    This is one of those altos you don’t want to put down. It’s just gotten a complete overhaul / mechanical restoration, which means that it feels and plays like new or even a bit better. I wanted to get this horn overhauled, because I had a really good feeling about how it played even on the original pads that it had when it got here. If you want a VI that will be problem-free for many many years, and plays better than any modern horn on the market, (and will go up in value) this is what you want!

    This was a one-owner horn that was well cared-for for decades before now, and now it is getting a good start on a new life with a top shelf overhaul. This thing has a beautiful voice. Medium between bright and dark, rich, and resonant. The late 60’s Mark VI’s are my favorites for all-around Selmer altos, because they do basically everything well. Intonation is good, scale is even, low notes are saturated even at pianissimo, upper register screams. This has the ‘medium bow’ if you’re wondering about such things, which means the low register tunes the best of the Mark VI’s. You can’t beat a Mark VI alto like this for build quality and all-around satisfying playing experience. You get the beautiful, unbeatable tone of a Mark VI, the comfortable key work, the excellent intonation, and the feel of a new horn under your fingers, and all for less than a (let’s be honest) comparatively poorly made new Selmer alto. Plus this holds its value and appreciates, while your new horn is going to be worth approximately half the new price in about one second after you unbox it (gasp).

    Comes with the original case, and you can add a great BAM case for a big discount if you contact me.

  • Selmer Mark VI Soprano Original Lacquer Very Good Condition 197315

    $ 4,950

    Wonderful example of a Selmer Mark VI soprano. This beauty has almost all of its original lacquer still remaining, as well as its original pads. Nobody has messed with this horn. It is still factory clean repair wise, with the nice, snappy factory setup still intact. If you’re going to be playing this seriously, you will want to get the pads replaced soon I would think. They are currently sealing surprisingly well, for it being 50 years old, and you can play it plenty well enough to tell that it has a rich, centered tone, medium between bright and dark, with a good amount of projection. With the right mouthpiece, the Mark VI is the ultimate smooth jazz soprano a la Kenny G. Kenny G gets both love and hate from the saxophone world, but there’s no question people far beyond the saxophone community love his sound, and he plays a Mark VI soprano just like this. There are no dents or dings, and there are no past repairs on this saxophone. It’s an amazing example, and well worth the price. The hard case is in good condition. Not original, and more protective than the original anyhow. You can upgrade to a BAM Signature (best modern soprano case) for not much extra. No mouthpiece comes with it, but we can discuss mouthpiece options if you don’t already have one that you love.

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor 143865 Original Lacquer Very Good Condition

    $ 7,350

    Freshly overhauled with domed nylon resonators (much like what would have been originally installed on this instrument at the factory) this Mark VI tenor is in good condition and plays very well, with a full voice and very even up and down the scale.  The spring tension are currently set moderately heavy, and although this instrument is over 50 years old the overhaul combined with the spring tensions make it feel and look almost like a new instrument. The spring tensions can be adjusted before shipping if you have a different preference, but the lacquer is still going to look nearly new!

    The original lacquer is in exceptionally good condition, and this horn might be what others would describe as “mint condition” due to the lacquer, but there are a few past repairs to mention that bring it out of that rarified atmosphere and bring the price down without affecting the tone.  These repairs were very well done, and each has been addressed with care and competence: a resoldered low Bb key guard foot, a few repaired dents on the body, and a past neck pulldown that has been repaired (and the neck refit). All in all, a nice Mark VI that has a very tidy overhaul on it, ready to play and needs nothing.

  • Selmer Mark VI Tenor from 1973 Saxophone Original Lacquer Overhauled Great!

    $ 6,350

    Just overhauled. This horn plays REALLY well. Super nice under the fingers, great response. Plays, feels, and responds better than most 5 digit tenors out there. If you want the loud, powerful late VI tenor sound, this is hard to beat.

    This is a mechanically very clean original lacquer Selmer Mark VI Tenor saxophone with American engraving. This horn has some speckling in the lacquer, as you can see, but if you look at what counts, this Mark VI tenor is in excellent condition. There’s no damage, no resolders, neck is in great condition. It JUST got a complete overhaul / restoration done, and it’s back to factory fresh mechanical and pad condition.  (An overhaul takes around 25 hours of skilled work, and represents a big added value to any saxophone.) That means all new pads, corks, felts, setup, mechanical work, neck fit – whatever it needs in order to play like a new horn.

    The later VI tenors are excellent players. Better tone and feel for the dollar than almost any other saxophone that you can buy period. And this one is mechanically very nice, which is what you want. If you have been wanting a solid pro tenor that is easy to play and sounds excellent, but is in the mid-range of price for a pro tenor, that’s this. Plus, rather than depreciate like a new horn, this Mark VI tenor will go up in value, and will be easy to re-sell at any point later. Buy it and get playing!

  • Selmer ORIGINAL Gold Plate Tenor Sax 16164B Coleman Hawkins Al Cohn Sal Nistico

    $ 14,999

    This tenor is an exceptionally rare original gold-plated Selmer Super Sax in very good physical condition.  Sporting ornate engraving down to the bottom of the bow in a burnished background, the body of the sax is a matte gold plate finish while the keys and interior of the bell are burnished.  Factory gold-plated Selmers are not common, and this is one the few original gold-plated Selmer tenors from this early Super Sax era ever made, and likely one of the nicest still surviving, if there are indeed others still out there.  The keywork is tight and shows very little wear- although this horn shows signs of being used, it was well cared-for and well loved.

    This horn has recently been given a thorough check-up and plays well.  I am a big fan of these Super saxes, and this instrument is a good example of why.  It plays with what is arguably the biggest voice of any Selmer, and is one of the few instruments that can give a good Conn of the same period a run for its money in richness.  But the velvety Selmer tone is there along with the fatness, making for a uniquely broad and ballsy-sounding Selmer with a lot more power than most horns. The keywork is quite nice and although of an older style ergonomically, those that play these do not find them difficult or an impediment to technical facility.  

    The serial number is also interesting: although infrequently seen, the B at the end of the serial (sometimes it would actually say “bis”) is Selmer’s way of denoting that they struck the same serial twice on two different instruments!  So this is Selmer #16164… B. All in all, a uniquely beautiful and rare instrument with the bonus of a historical quirk. 

    The last 7 photos are of some of the tenor greats playing similar horns to this.

    Selmer Radio Improved Alto Saxophone Relacquered Priced LOW 20073

    $ 1,750 $ 1,500

    Price just lowered Feb 4 2019. Nothing is sweeter and more beautiful to play on alto than the Radio Improved and early Balanced Action Selmer Paris alto saxophones.

    This horn is hard to beat for the price. This is a desirable Radio Improved alto (of which only around 1500 were made), and it is refinished (relacquered) but besides having received a new coat of paint, it is in good condition.

    Looks like there were some small dents removed from the back of the bow area, probably before it was relacquered, and the post that holds the bell key guard is resoldered. Looks fine now. The pads are a mix of older and newer, and it just got a modest playing condition job done before it was consigned. It plays well enough that you can certainly enjoy it. Keys are in good shape, octave mechanism is good, neck cork is brand new. The tone is warm, medium-spread, and rich. Sort of Paul Desmond is the best way to describe it. Desmond played almost the same horn, (an early BA) that was made the next year or so after this.

    At this price, it’s hard to beat. Someone is going to get a fantastic alto out of this bargain!

  • Selmer S90 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece D44

  • Selmer SBA Alto Saxophone Original Lacquer from 1946 Fresh Overhaul! Super Balanced Action

    $ 5,650

    This is a gorgeous original lacquer Selmer SBA Alto Saxophone American engraved and assembled, that is in excellent physical condition AND has a fresh, full overhaul. This horn plays really well, with a lush, wide tone that is medium dark and smooth. The keywork feels great under the fingers – nice and snappy. It has a top quality overhaul, which is very important on a horn like this, and has slightly domed metal resonators, which are similar to the original equipment for an SBA of this vintage.

    The neck is in excellent condition, body tube, bell flare, and bow are all undamaged. The engraving on this alto is particularly nice, and the exposed part of the brass is developing a beautiful matte patina that accentuates the engraving. This is a horn that looks even better in person than in the photos. It comes from a lifelong saxophone player whose baritone and tenor were also stand out players. He really had three excellent saxophones and this one is no exception.

    From a player’s perspective, you get the warmth and complexity of a Balanced Action here with slightly more comfortable keywork (offset stack keys so your wrists are more relaxed compared to BA). Plenty of volume, nice easy, saturated low register, even at very low volumes. Easy subtone. Easy altissimo. Feels like a new horn under the fingers but is better built and sounds better. The price includes a new BAM Classic alto saxophone case at no extra charge.

    Only one available.

  • Selmer Super Sax Tenor Saxophone 17xxx Original Lac Overhauled Modern Keywork!

    $ 7,500

    Here’s a 1933 Selmer Super Sax tenor with a recent overhaul, original finish, and several modifications/modernizations: a larger right hand thumbrest, a later-style geared octave mechanism with Mark VI style righward-tilting thumb key, and Balanced Action style left hand pinky table.  These modifications significantly modernize the feel of this horn, and ergonomically it feels about a generation younger than it actually is.

    The modifications themselves were done quite competently, and fit and blend in well with the horn, not being noticeable upon casual inspection unless you know where to look.  The saxophone itself is in good physical condition, with moderate lacquer wear and no major past damage that I can see.

    These types of modifications are not easy to do, are quite expensive, and are not often done, so it could be a good long while before you see another Super Sax with a modernized left hand pinky table.  If you’ve been interested by the big Selmer tone of the Super Sax models but are used to modern ergonomics, this could be the horn for you.

Refaced by Ted Klum, not signed, with a minimal amount of material removed as evidenced by the oval D marking on the table being nearly completely intact.
