  • SML King Marigaux Soprano Saxophone Gold Medal 2 Excellent 25321

    $ 2,000

    This is a gorgeous example of an SML soprano saxophone with original lacquer. It’s a Gold Medal 2, meaning it has straight tone holes, but it has nearly all of the other features of a Gold Medal 1 and is practically the same. Many of these were distributed by King and have the King name on the bell along with the Marigaux (The ‘M’ in SML). I have the matching tenor to this soprano also for sale now. These are some of the best values around in vintage saxophones today. The SML saxophones play basically like a Conn/Selmer hybrid, with a bigger, darker tone like a Conn, but with easy modern feeling keywork like a Selmer, and a a bit of French saxophone in the mix. If you want a soprano that isn’t reedy and nasal, but tends towards a wider operatic sound, even in the upper register, then Conn, Martin, and SML are your main options, and SML is the most modern feeling under the fingers of the three.

    Yamaha SILVER YSS-82ZRS Soprano Saxophone Mint Condition Setup Excellent

    $ 4,900

    This is a mint condition Yamaha YSS-82ZRS soprano. The Yamaha 82ZRS is basically a reissue of the popular Yamaha 62 soprano. The silver versions were the most desirable of the Yamaha YSS-62R on which the 82ZR is based. So if you have always wanted to get a Yamaha YSS-62RS this is nearly identical, but with some upgraded keywork. The main changes are that the left hand pinky (spatula) keys are now easier to operate and the palm keys are a little more comfortable. Yamaha tells me that the bore and dimensions of the 82ZR are exactly the same as the 62R, and on purpose. It is meant to be a modern reissue of the enormously popular 62R. With the 62R, Yamaha finally broke with the Selmer Mark VI soprano tonal concept and do something warmer, rounder, and more pleasant. It became an instant classic. There’s a big demand for more of these, so Yamaha helpfully rose to the occasion.

    The reason that the 62R/82ZR is so popular is the combination of one piece design – no neck joint to lose air or resonance – and the warm, complex tone that these horns get. And the bent neck, which brings the horn down onto the neck strap for added comfort. Branford Marsalis plays this model, and sounds wonderful on it. I think he helped with the keywork improvements also. In short, it’s probably the best modern soprano available: Lightest, most resonant, very in tune, most comfortable to play, best long term investment. It’s a modern classic.

    If like me, you have always wanted one of these horns in silver, now is your chance. They are hard to find! This one just got its checkup and is ready to go! It is in basically mint condition, but has been played maybe a couple of hours total.

  • Yamaha YSS-82ZR Custom One Piece Bent Neck Soprano Mint Like New!

    $ 4,950

    Mint condition 82ZR I got in trade that is unplayed or maybe played once. As close to new as you will find! It also comes with the GetASax new horn checkup included, which is actually a very valuable service, as you can be sure the 82ZR is playing its best.

  • Yamaha YSS-82ZRS Custom One Piece Bent Neck Silver Plated Soprano Mint!

    $ 5,450

    Mint, like new YSS-82ZRS soprano that plays absolutely perfectly! These will be collectible some day, because they are sold in small numbers and are the most desirable version. I always have to wait 6 months when I want to order one new. They’re made to order, and will hold their value well over time. If you want the resonance of a one piece soprano with the comfort of the bent neck, so that it hangs correctly on the strap hook, then 82ZR is for you! It plays almost exactly like a 62R, but it costs less. It’s hard to beat in the soprano category.
