  • Conn 12M Transitional Art Deco Engraved Original Silver Plate Baritone

    $ 8,000

    Freshly overhauled Mulligan-era original silver plated Art-deco engraved Conn transitional 12M baritone in great shape. This horn just had a high end overhaul, and it feels like a new horn under the fingers. It has the rare art deco engraving, and it looks gorgeous. It has had several posts resoldered, as you can see, which was part of the overhaul, and done to make it really sturdy and ready for its next 80 years of playing. This horn is just effortless to play, and it sounds warm and full and extremely pleasant. Conns almost feel like a tenor to hold and play, weight wise, which makes them extra fun for the pro bari player. Plus nothing sounds like a Conn 12M. This is fully a 12M in terms of keywork and features, with same side bell keys, X brace and 12M stack and palm keys. These are super hard to find in good shape. I’ve been watching beat up 12M’s needing a $2k overhaul selling over $6k on eBay, so this rare art deco version from the best serial range and already overhauled is definitely a great deal. It will only go up in value. This is the baritone to have.

  • Powell Silver Eagle SE10 Alto One of 18 Made – all options solid silver +Matt Stohrer Overhau

    $ 12,000

    For your viewing pleasure, this is one of the 18 Powell Silver Eagle saxophones made. Powell conceived of an ambitious project to bring back an American-made saxophone of the highest quality. Inspired by the Super 20 SilverSonic, the Silver Eagle reproduces the bore while adding solid silver soldered tone holes and modern keywork. Powell sadly ended their project after making only 18 saxophones, despite high demand, due to the high cost of production. This horn plays like a good super 20 but a little more evenly, and has been completely overhauled by Matt Stohrer. This is the ultimate collectible among modern saxophones, and it is also a burning player. Asking price is just what these cost new, plus a little extra since it got a $1500 overhaul on top of that! It’s not even inflated for the collectibility value, which is probably not smart of me, but there it is. If you want to discuss all the details of this project, I can put you in touch with the people who built it. These were most definitely a new saxophone bore and neck design, inspired by the best King Super 20 SilverSonic altos, both according to them and according to the folks who bought the tooling and mandrels when the project ended. The keywork is modified from tooling bought from B&S, which accounts for the pinky table that sticks out farther than it would on something like a Yamaha.

    There is most certainly only one available. This one has all the possible factory options, which only a subset of Powell Silver Eagles had – including the solid silver tone holes and even cryo treatment. Of the 18 saxophones built, I know at least a couple of them were brass bell, and some others lacked other of these features. This is one of the ones with everything, which makes it even more collectible. Includes the original accessories, case, and paperwork.

    Just for fun, here’s Matt Stohrer’s repairman’s overview from when he overhauled it.

  • Selmer Balanced Action Saxophone Fresh Overhaul Original Silver Plate Great Tone

    $ 6,500

    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 along the back of 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. The spring tension is on the lighter side, like with most Balanced Actions. If you want stiffer spring tension, we could discuss replacing the springs, but right now, it has a light flute-like feel like these originally had.

    Tonally, If you want an alto that people are going to want to listen to, this is the one. It plays extremely well, with a warm, powerful voice that is effortlessly lyrical and makes you not want to put it down. It has high-end reusable domed brass resonators and sounds very good on them. Keywork is 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.

  • Selmer Super / Adolphe Sax Alto Saxophone 769 Getting Overhauled!

    $ 3,750

    Are you the ultimate saxophone hipster. (jk) The sort of snob who likes to have a saxophone nobody else can imitate? Here’s an alto you might want in that case. Or if you just love vintage Selmers and want one that both plays extremely well and has some history. This plays wider and wilder than a modern Selmer or than a VI. It is sort of half Conn in how it feels to play these early Selmers before they changed the bore.

    This is basically a Selmer Super Sax from the 1930’s, but with a bell and a few other parts made by the Adolphe Sax company. Selmer used these parts on a small batch of excellent saxophones in the 30’s after it bought the Adolphe Sax company and all its inventory. These special saxophones play like a Selmer Super Sax or Radio Improved, but the bell says Adolphe Sax on it. The body tubes have the normal Selmer ‘body numbers’ for a Super sax, and the keywork is Super as well. This alto is getting a complete high end restoration now, and it will look gorgeous all polished up and repadded very soon.

    I’m really excited about it. The Selmer Adolphe baritone I had was extremely good, and went to a collector who absolutely loves how it plays. This alto will be even better I suspect. The Super Sax ‘cigar cutter’ altos are among my favorite of all vintage altos, and this is basically one of those in terms of tone and design.
