  • King Original Gold Plate Soprano Saxophone Beautiful Engraving 56362

    $ 1,500

    This is an original gold plated King soprano from about 1922.  The engraving is exquisite, as it usually is on gold plated King saxophones, and the horn itself is in very good physical condition.  Keyed to high Eb, it currently plays ok on old pads, and the tone is very warm and pleasant. As is typical with sopranos of this age, the intonation is pretty flexible, but given a good ear and voicing it is entirely possible to play in tune- just don’t expect this to do the job for you like a modern Yamaha or Yanagisawa!  The trade-off is, as it usually is in my experience, richness of tone for flexibility of intonation, although a large chamber soprano mouthpiece (like a vintage Buescher) will make the job a lot easier. I was playtesting this on a modern Yanagisawa piece though and enjoyed it quite a bit, without any notable intonational problems for me personally.  This is from a collection and has old pads. But just the gold plate is worth the entire price of the horn. It’s a super deal. You could easily find this priced double somewhere else. Includes the nice Buescher soprano mouthpiece in the photos!

    The original case for this instrument is in good condition and fits it very well.

  • King Saxello Soprano Tipped Bell Bent Neck Near Pristine Silver Plate

    $ 2,600

    This is a rare and beautiful example of a King Saxello soprano. The King Saxello is not just cool, but practical. The bent neck moves the horn down to rest on the neck strap for added comfort. The upturned bell means that you can hear yourself when you play! Condition wise, this is among the best I have seen. There was a very small dent that was removed from the neck, and it was done well. That’s it for past repairs. This thing is clean! Body tube, keywork, posts, bell flare etc are all very good.

    The King Saxello has a big, wide tone that is way larger than any modern soprano. Really, you have to play a Saxello like this in order to even imagine how different it sounds from a modern soprano. Simply put, many modern sopranos sound more like an oboe than a sax, but the King Saxello sounds like a saxophone! This horn needs an overhaul to play, so plan on getting pads replaced! But it’s a great example to have overhauled, and it’s priced to move.

    The original silver is almost all intact, and the horn just looks great. The price is extremely low for one of these, and this horn is a great purchase and a delight to own. Plus it’s cool to bring to gigs and to show people. The King Saxello is just intrinsically cool.

  • Oscar Adler Curved Soprano Saxophone 992B-14

    Oscar Adler Curved Soprano Saxophone – Crazy Right Hand Bell Keys! 992

    $ 1,900

    Highly Collectible Oscar Adler Markneukirchen-made curved soprano saxophone. This instrument has three ‘petal’ keys that allow you to play low C#, B and Bb with your right hand fingertips, which is pretty useful actually. I have never seen another instrument like this one in person or online. Excellent condition. I had two of the petal key touches expertly (and invisibly) restored where they had been shortened. Comes in a cool possibly-original red case with tons of storage. Pads are older of course, but it will play a bit on them, with a big, wide, dark spread tone.

    Super cool piece of saxophone history here. This instrument may be from around 1909 or so, though I am admittedly not an expert on dating early Oscar Adler saxophones.

  • Selmer Mark VI Soprano from 1971 Excellent Original Lacquer 189112

    $ 5,250

    This is an extremely nice condition, original pads Selmer Mark VI soprano.  It appears to have been played very little, and actually plays extremely well on its original pads, which to me is an indication that this horn has led a very sheltered life and harbors no surprises for its future owner.  This horn is original lacquer, Euro-assembled with no engraving. The original case, protected by a case cover, is in excellent condition. The horn plays with the warm, centered and focused tone that VI sopranos are known for- with the certain alluring beauty that makes them hard to put down.  If you’ve been looking for an original, unmolested Mark VI soprano to make your own, it would be hard to find one in better shape than this one, and the later serial makes it one of the less expensive ways to acquire one.

    It includes the case in the photos, and if you want to add a nice BAM Signature soprano case, I can get you a great discount on one. Keeps the horn very safe in shipping and gigging.

    Only one available!

  • Selmer Mark VI Soprano from 1971 Original Silver Plate + BAM Case 189125

    $ 4,200
  • 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.

    Only one available.

  • Selmer Mark VI Soprano Saxophone 253537

    $ 4,850

    Beautiful original lacquer Selmer Mark VI soprano saxophone in excellent condition. The pads are a mix of older and newer, mostly older. But it plays nicely on them with a warm, resonant tone. This is a great VI soprano and sounds rich, and also tunes quite well. Original case is in good shape too. No dents or dings, no resolders. A bit of stand wear inside the bell flare is about all there is to say about this very nice Mark VI soprano!

But there will never be enough vintage Brilhart ligatures to meet the high demand for this style of ligature. And never before has there been a Soprano ligature available! (Brilhart only made alto and tenor.) This is an amazing ligature and also fits almost every soprano hard rubber mouthpiece ever made.

  • Yamaha YSS-475 Soprano Saxophone Near Mint Condition Made with YSS-62 Tooling

    $ 1,800

    The YSS-475 is made with the tooling from the YSS-62 and plays just like a coveted Yamaha 62 purple logo soprano, but costs less. This makes it by far the best entry-priced soprano saxophone. It’s really a professional soprano for an intermediate price. Tunes great, sounds warm and pleasant, keywork is comfortable, and the price is low. What’s not to love?

    This one has been played only a tiny bit since new, and it looks almost like a new instrument. It includes everything in the photos – nice original case, mouthpiece, and some other accessories. It comes with a fresh checkup to make sure the low-miles pads are sealing their best.

    These always sell quickly. Get yours before it is gone.
