  • Conn 10M Tenor Rolled Tone Holes Original Silver Plate Very Good Condition Fresh Overhaul! 310735

    $ 4,950

    This is a fantastic, freshly overhauled Conn 10M Tenor in original silver plate finish. It has a beautiful gold was bell as well. It has a little bit of ID engraving on it, which accounts for about a $1000 discount in the price that you get it for. The overhaul was done through GetASax with Pisoni italian leather pads and reusable slightly domed brass TenorMadness resonators, which are the best resonators around IMO for a Conn like this. It’s an effortless player and just feels wonderful to play. It’s a steal at this price, and outplays anything else you can buy in this price range, vintage or modern. Whoever gets it is one lucky player. Here’s Tyler playing a few notes on it just for fun.

     

  • Conn 12M Baritone AMAZING Original Silver Plate and Freshly Overhauled 347630

    $ 6,500

    This is a gorgeous example of an original silver plate Conn 12M Baritone Saxophone. It just had a complete overhaul with all new everything, and it is in top playing condition now and ready to go! If you’ve been wanting a vintage baritone, the Conn 12M is the one to get! It’s the most desirable vintage baritone, and it feels almost like a tenor to hold and play. The tone is the reason to get one – warm, round, full, and extremely pleasant to listen to. Gerry Mulligan, Harry Carney etc. played these. This one has virtually no past repairs, and no dents or dings. The original silver is nearly 100%, and the gold wash in the bell is still intact. It sat in storage for most of its life, which is why it is in such clean condition. Then it got a thorough restoration recently and is still fresh and ready to go.

  • Conn 8M C Melody Unbelievable Condition Fresh Overhaul Original Silver Naked Lady 274636

    $ 6,000

    This is a wonderful and extremely rare example of a very late serial Conn 8M C Melody saxophone with the ‘Artist’ / ‘Naked Lady’ engraving pattern on the bell. It’s gorgeous original silver plate finish with gold wash in the bell. It just got a full top-shelf overhaul with Italian leather Pisoni pads and nice sent of screw in reusable flat metal (brass) resonators. If you want a really good C melody for less money, look for a late New Wonder II Conn – around 200k serial if you can find one. This particular late serial version is ultra-rare — I’ve only seen 7 of them ever. This is the latest one I’ve ever sold. The cool thing about the later Conn C melody saxophones is that the tone opens up and gets really big and projecting like a tenor. If you use a GS RESO C Melody mouthpiece on this horn, you can get a tone that you just can’t get on any other type of saxophone. It’s in C but it’s fat and full and open like a tenor, but it concert pitch. Nothing else sounds like this. I had Tyler do a demo with one of my Conn C melodys and the GS RESO, so that you can get a basic idea of what it can sound like. Tyler had never played a C melody before, so I think he did pretty well for his first time!

  • Conn New Wonder II Transitional Alto Saxophone Original Silver Old Pads 237954

    $ 950

    This late Conn New Wonder II alto sax is in very good original condition, and just needs a quality overhaul to be an excellent player. It’s original silver plate, and it will shine up and look amazing with a cleaning and polishing job put into it. These late New Wonder II’s start to be called transitional when they get their first 6M-anticipating feature: the raised side E key touch. Besides that, this is pretty much a New Wonder II, though Conn also starts to experiment with the neck around this serial, to improve intonation and give slightly more focus to the sound (still very wide and spread). When overhauled nicely, these altos are unmatched for the amount that they feel alive in your hands. They vibrate and respond so amazingly well. I never want to put the horn down!

  • Lyon and Healy Bb Soprano Original Silver 200211

    $ 850

    Lyon and Healy branded straight Bb soprano saxophone from 1928 or so. Who actually manufactured this is disputed, as Couturier (the usual name) was both a cornet manufacturer, and also was not actually involved in making this saxophone (having retired in 1923). But the quickest way to find them is to look for Lyon and Healy Couturier saxophones.

  • Martin Handcraft Soprano Beautiful Original Silver Overhauled Amazing 83569

    $ 3,950
  • 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.

  • 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 Mark VI Tenor Old Varitone Fully Engraved + AfterMarket Silver Plate Job Big Player 141570

    $ 6,000

    This is a really powerful Mark VI tenor that was one-owner, and well played and loved its entire life so far. The original owner had the varitone pickup system removed from the bell, and he then had the horn fully engraved, neck to bell flare by Sherry Huntley, and then silver plated. It has the Selmer factory pickup port still present in the neck, which you could use for recording or to run through effects pedals if you want to, and it would work great. Or just ignore it and it plays like a regular Mark VI. The current pads are medium way through their usable life. This horn was frequently maintained by a local shop here, including just a few weeks ago, and they are still sealing well. If you want a powerful, medium bright Mark VI tenor that also turns heads with its silver plate finish and full engraving, and you want that all for a low price, since the silver is aftermarket, that’s what you’re getting. It’s a great value in a Mark VI, because this horn has always been well cared-for, and it had a ton of money put into it in the engraving (+$750 or more) plus the plating (+$2k at least).
