  • Borgani Joe Lovano Pearl Silver Tenor Saxophone Excellent Condition 19626 – Sounds like a Conn!

    $ 3,950

    Borgani Joe Lovano model in Pearl Silver with 24k gold plated keywork. This has not been played much since it was bought new last year by the original owner. It plays like a vintage Conn but with modern keywork, which is pretty cool. More like a New Wonder II than like a 10M. The tone is big, dark, wide, and pretty spread. You can find videos of Joe Lovano playing this model, if you search on Youtube. If you love the sound of a Conn, but you don’t want to play a horn with vintage keywork, this is really your only option among modern saxophones.

    This horn has no dents, no dings, no past repairs at all. It has been well cared for and feels quite good under the fingers. It just got the pads checked out, and it is playing very easily. It comes in the beautiful original case which is also in great shape.

  • Buescher Big B Tenor Saxophone 293523 Original Lacquer Fresh Full Overhaul Excellent!

    $ 3,500

    This is an original lacquer Buescher Aristocrat Big B tenor with the desirable small bell. It’s one of the most beautiful vintage Bueschers, with extensive engraving and gorgeously translucent, dark nitrocellulose lacquer. They don’t make them like this anymore.

    This tenor just got a full mechanical overhaul, and I mean the works! When I got it, it had new pads, but the pad work was not that good, so now it has a really great overhaul and plays excellently. The keywork is in great condition – nice and tight. The missing lacquer on the back of the bow doesn’t show when you play, and is from a small dent that was removed a bit to vigorously at some point. That is now fixed, and the rest of the horn is quite nice. Neck is in good condition also. There are no dents or dings. It is hard to find this desirable version of the vintage Buescher tenor in good shape, and this one is better than all but a few. It has the snaps and spuds intact, but has correct style ‘real’ pad work that works around the spuds. (If you watch Matt Stohrer’s video on Buescher overhauls, you’ll see what I mean. This is extra work, but worth it to do right the first time.)

    Playing wise, it’s tons of fun. It has a centered, warm tone with excellent response and intonation. It would be pretty hard to sound bad on this tenor. It has that classic American straight-ahead projection that fills a room whether you are amplified or not. And it’s just pleasant to listent to. So many of the modern options I hear people playing are different flavors of bland and rather hollow-sounding. This tenor is rich and full of color. Bueschers like this tune well with a wide range of mouthpieces, and they can do anything from classical to jazz to R&B.

  • Buescher Top Hat and Cane Tenor Saxophone Fresh Overhaul Factory Relacquer 300849

    $ 3,300

    This highly-desirable Buescher Top Hat and Cane tenor is in excellent condition, AND it just got a complete restoration, which means an overhaul of everything that can be done. That’s like a $1000-1500 value added right there.

    This looks like original lacquer, but is actually a factory relacquer job done with basically no buffing or changes to the brass of the horn. Probably just a chemical strip, hand polish, and re-spray. It looks really good, and plays great too!

    The Top Hat and Cane is easily the most desirable of the Bueschers, and it is one of the most beautiful vintage saxophones also, with the raised metal Buescher logo, the castle engraving, and all of the little design touches that set it apart. I personally love the silver ‘tone ring’ underneath the bell flare. A lot of work to add; not very visible, but they did it anyway. And there are details like that all over the horn.

    This is a great all-purpose tenor. It is warm and full sounding – nice fat upper register, responsive low register. Intonation is very easy. And it works with a wide range of mouthpieces. A lot of those beach band 60’s tenor solos are on Bueschers like this, but you can just as easily play jazz or classical repertoire on them. You’re saving about $1500 off the price because it has a new coat of lacquer. That’s a great deal.

  • Conn 10M Tenor Saxophone 1935 Fresh Overhaul Original Lacquer Great Deal!

    $ 3,850

    This is this kind of Conn 10M tenor saxophone that makes people ditch their Selmers and Yamahas. Keywork is comfortable, intonation is excellent, and the tone is to die for. Wide, dark, but still punchy and with a good amount of focus. Palm key tone is gorgeous and full, not a bit thin. Priced to sell quickly. It’s cheaper than a new Taiwanese tenor and is built better and sounds better. By the way, this is what original lacquer looks like on the early 10M’s from ’34-35.

  • Conn 10M Tenor Saxophone Naked Lady Rolled Tone Holes Original Lacquer Good Pads 322571

    $ 3,150

    Price just lowered 6/19! Great deal on an original lacquer, rolled tone holes Conn 10M tenor. This horn came from a big collection of great American saxophones that I recently bought. It was repadded at some point before it came in, and the pads are still in good condition. It has a huge, warm, medium dark, powerful tone that fills a room instantly. And the intonation is also great. The keywork is quite fast and comfortable once you get used to it, which only takes a couple of weeks if you are coming from a Selmer.

    The only past repairs are some small dents removed from the back of the body tube. Probably from a mouthpiece rattling around in the case with the horn long ago. One in the upper body tube, one near the strap hook, and one near the thumb hook. Also a small one removed from the top of the neck. It’s in very good shape now. It’s uncommon to see a 10M like this with so few repairs and nothing resoldered or seriously damaged and repaired. This is one of the good ones for sure! Engraving is beautiful and crisp also.

  • Conn 10M Tenor Saxophone Pre-War 1935 Relacquered Fresh Overhaul Plays Easily

  • Conn 10M Tenor Saxophone Pre-War Original Lacquer Exceptional Player Matt Stohrer Overhaul

    $ 5,350

    One of the best playing tenors on the entire site right. This has a huge, effortless, resonant voice. Vibrates in your hands and comes to life easily even at low volumes. It’s a joy to play. You can’t beat Matt Stohrer’s work on one of these. He did a full overhaul a few years ago, and it hasn’t been played much since. He just did a full-day full disassembly, cleaning, and re-setup, and it’s as good as new.

  • Conn 10M Tenor Saxophone Prewar Overhauled Outstanding Condition 271884

    $ 6,000
  • Conn 94M DJH Modified Tenor Saxophone Keilwerth Made Excellent Pro Tenor!

    $ 2,750

    Getting a complete high end overhaul right now! This is in the hard-to-beat-for-the-price category for sure. Made by Keilwerth for Conn, this is like a Couf Superba 1 with straight tone holes and Conn 10M engraving. As you may know already, the Superba 1 is one of my favorite tenors. I’m not surprised that when Conn wanted to add a new professional instrument to its line, it went with the Keilwerth. It is the most like a Conn of any modern horn, and it is well made, tunes well, feels great undet the fingers. It really checks all the boxes of what you might want in a tenor.

    This particular example has original lacquer and no resolders. It is getting overhauled right now, which is a big job – 30+ hours of highly-skilled labor goes into a good overhaul, and that means the horn will play its very best with all new everything, for a long time into the future. It’s a joy to play a horn like this with a fresh overhaul. Just the work costs around $1100-1500 to do everything, which means you are getting an excellent value. The horn itself is less than half the price!  Buy it now to reserve it. It should be ready in the next 2-3 weeks (so June 2019).

  • Conn New Wonder 1 Tenor Exceptionally Fine Player Tunes Great Fresh Overhaul BAM Case 67890

    $ 3,200

    Do you want the biggest, darkest, most spread and room-filling vintage Conn tone possible? Do you want a gorgeous vintage Conn with original silver plate that looks almost new? Do you want it with a freshly-done high end ($1k+) overhaul, with high-end metal resonators? Do you want a premium $350 BAM tenor case included that fits the horn beautifully and will keep it in top adjustment?

    Well, look no further. That’s what this is. Any you should buy it. Right now. You won’t be sorry. I didn’t call it an exceptionally fine player for nothing.

  • Couf Superba 1 Tenor Very Good Condition Original Lacquer Getting Overhauled!

    $ 3,850

    Just freshly overhauled. This might be the best playing tenor on the entire site (see also this Conn). This tenor has a HUGE, powerful tone, with effortless, fat low register, and crisp, fat upper register. It is just a joy to play. It got the premium TenorMadness hand-machined, slightly-domed, reusable metal resonators that work so well on these horns, and that look great also. 

    This is a very nice condition Couf (made by Keilwerth for Herb Couf) Superba I tenor, which is a great modern ergonomics horn with a lot of the big, fat tone of an old Conn.  Some people also compare them tonally to a good Selmer SBA, and they do indeed share the big sound you can get on a great Selmer.

    This particular sax sports a high F# key and has lived a relatively cosseted life thus far.  The only evidence of any repairs or damage past or present is a resolder on the low Eb keyguard foot, which is fairly common on these, and has no impact on playability. The original gold colored lacquer (which has a particularly beautiful lustre to it that can often be mistaken for gold plate) is in very good shape.  

    The Couf Superba I sports rolled toneholes and a really cool modern engraving pattern and was built in West Germany by Keilwerth to be imported by Herb Couf, a distinguished professional saxophonist who later was a Vice President of the W. T. Armstrong company.  As told to me by those who knew him and also as evidenced by playing the saxophone he chose to put his name on, the man had good taste in saxophones. If you have been looking for an extremely well built modern ergonomics horn with a bigger sound than you find on most modern instruments, look no further- Couf has you covered.

  • Hiscox Artist Black Tenor Saxophone Case LA-WTS-B

    $ 489

    Hiscox makes the best overall saxophone case on the market today for most horns. This is especially true for vintage saxophones, because a Hiscox case will fit harder-to-fit horns like a transitional Conn with split bell keys and a larger than normal bell. It will also fit a 10M or similar horn with opposite side bell keys. These are the strongest case on the market, as well as the best insulated against temperature changes, and also the lightest for travel or shipping.

    Ishimori Wood Stone New Vintage Tenor Saxophones BRAND NEW – Eric Alexander Model LAST One!

    $ 4,750

    The highly-coveted Ishimori Wood Stone tenor has very comfortable keywork, low, fast action, and a warm, complex tone more like a vintage sax than other modern alternatives. It gets a complete, painstaking mechanical overhaul by Ishimori’s famous saxophone repair shop in Japan before being sold. This makes it very reliable to own over time. I have sold several used ones of these, and they are always holding up very well after years of heavy playing. These features combine to make it highly desirable, and almost always back-ordered. Ishimori doesn’t cut corners on getting the horns totally right before sending them out the door, and this means they will always have a production bottleneck at the overhaul stage of their business. These horns are delightful to play, with an SBA-inspired neck that gives them much of that warmth and delicate core that we love in many vintage Selmers. They also tune well and are beautifully hand-engraved. The Eric Alexander model (this one) plays, to my ear, basically the same as the other models. I’m sure there are subtle differences, but they are much more similar than different.

    I have to wait months to get in more of these horns. This is the last one available of the shipment that recently came in. Once it’s gone, I’m back to the waiting game.

    Keilwerth SX90R Shadow Tenor Saxophone 124815

  • King Super 20 Tenor Original Lacquer Full Pearls Fresh Overhaul!

    $ 6,450

    Price just lowered 6/4/19! This is one of the most beautiful saxophones ever produced – the King Super 20 with pearl side keys and palm keys, bell and bow key cups engraved, solid silver neck, three ring strap hook – just about as de-luxe as it gets.

    But wait, there’s more! For a price lower than a new Keilwerth Shadow, or a new Selmer Reference etc, you get not only one of the best-built, most beautiful, best-sounding tenors ever made. You also get it with a fresh overhaul done by one of the most meticulous saxophone repairmen in the business – Carlo Cennamo of cennamowoodwinds.com . I have been hearing good things about Carlo’s work for a few years, but I finally got to see it earlier this year, and it is just top quality. Full mechanical rebuild including all key fitting to precise better-than-new tolerances; excellent pad work that feels dry and snappy under the fingers and makes the horn resonate its notes on its own as you close the pads; adjustment materials that make sense throughout; a carefully done neck fit for a good seal; nice, even spring tensions. This is a $1500++ overhaul and takes Carlo almost an entire work week to complete. So that’s a big deal.

    The only past repair I see on this horn is a resoldered brace on the bell side that popped off on its own when the horn was disassembled. It was popped right back on and is in good shape now. This horn has obviously been babied since it was new. It has almost all of its original lacquer intact. For you King geeks out there, this is King’s ‘light’ colored lacquer advertised in its sales brochures. The dark lacquer ranges from caramel to chocolate colored and looks completely different. By the way, it now has the correct neck screw and Eb key guard screws. I need to update the photos.

    This horn just sings, with a medium dark core tone that gets brighter and punchier as you push it. The solid silver neck gives you more upper partials and a bit more of a ringing focus to the sound. The whole horn comes alive as you play, and the response is particularly satisfying. If you have never played a saxophone that is actually right, then I hope that you will soon get to experience it. Low Bb is just another easy note to play, and you can play the entire low register easily at any volume, including pianissimo without losing ‘saturation’ in the sound. Basically, the horn just gets out of the way and lets you play what you want. It’s a beautiful thing.

    This comes with a new BAM Classic tenor case, and you can swap that out for a different case if you want to discuss options. There’s only one available of this beautiful Super 20. Get it now!

    The tuning, ergonomics, and build quality on these is really excellent. Tone is warm, powerful, classy, and medium dark. One of the best horns you can get per dollar spent.

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

    $ 7,500

    See the full description below for more info. 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.

  • 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 Mark VI Tenor Saxophone from 1970 American Engraved

    $ 6,450

    This is a beautiful example of a Selmer Mark VI Tenor Saxophone from 1970. It is American engraved and assembled. The entire horn is original lacquer. Except for the neck, which has been relacquered, but still completely matches the horn in look and color. The neck evidently had a dent removed under the octave key, and the original owner wanted it to look as good as the horn, so had the dent removed and the neck resprayed. Anyway, it’s not a big deal playing wise, but I’m lowering the price of the horn by around $1500 to give someone a great deal on an original lacquer VI in excellent condition that is also cheaper than buying just a regular new Selmer tenor sax. Compared to a new Series II tenor, or a new Ref 54 or (gasp) Ref 36, you are saving hundreds to several thousands of dollars and getting a horn that is better made, plays better for almost any style but classical (nod to the Series II and III purists here) and will hold its value or go up in value rather than going down like a new Selmer would.

    To keep the price low, I’m selling it with all of its original pads still intact. It actually still plays quite well on the original pads, and seals up with little ‘note like’ pad pops all the way down to Bb. It’s a joy to feel the high quality pad work that Selmer Elkhart did on its original factory setups.

    All in all, this horn is in AMAZING physical condition. You very rarely find original lacquer horns that are 48 years old that look so great. It’s a great opportunity for someone to score a really eye-turning VI tenor for a discounted price.

    Only one available.

  • 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 SBA Tenor Saxophone Silver Plated 47611-3

    Selmer SBA Tenor Saxophone 47xxx Original Silver Great Player Super Balanced Action

    $ 12,000

    Here is a gorgeous Selmer Super Balanced Action tenor, built in 1952.  It has its original silver plated finish, and it is in very good condition.  The Selmer Super Balanced Action tenor is among the most desirable tenor saxophones ever. And for good reason. It’s the horn Coltrane famously played for many years (up until around 1965), and the horn Branford Marsalis and many others play today. It has the classic Selmer tone that, whether you know it or not, is already in your ears from all those classic Blue Note era recordings. Hank Mobley on Soul Station is one for me among many others.  Point being, if you’ve heard a saxophone on a famous recording, you’ve likely heard one of these. And that is no accident- these saxophones are sublime.

    This saxophone has been overhauled at some point in the past few years and was recently given a tuneup, and it plays very well, with the broad and rich Selmer tone that these are so known for. The only damage is a scratch inside the bell flare, probably from a clip on microphone. The bell flare is just a little uneven in that spot when you look at the light reflecting on it. Super minor, but I’d rather you are pleasantly surprised by the horn’s beauty than disappointed at a flaw you didn’t notice.

    The keywork is comfortable and intuitive, owing to the underlying design started with the Balanced Action and honed with the Super Balanced Action that was so inspired it remains the basic template for all saxophones made to this day.  The intonation is excellent (this is one of the later long bell tenors- the early short bell tenors are known for needing a bit of extra attention to low note intonation) and the response is quick and lively, and as the best Selmers do it lends itself easily to any style of music- which is one of the things that sets Selmers apart from the rest.  It is an ability that is in my experience rare among saxophones, and nobody does it better than Selmer.

  • SML Rev D (Gold Medal 1) Tenor Saxophone Original Lacquer 11774 1954 Needs Overhaul

    $ 1,950

    This original lacquer SML Rev D tenor saxophone is the same as an SML Gold Medal 1 Tenor. (The Rev D is what won the ‘Gold Medal’ so that they named it ‘Gold Medal’). This horn needs an overhaul, but it is original lacquer and it is in good condition with no dents. The neck receiver and one foot of the Eb key guard have been resoldered, and some dent work is evident on the back of the body tube (by the serial number, thumb hook, strap hook, and under the D palm key foot). There are no dents now, and the horn is ready to be overhauled. When these horns are all ready to go, they just sound fantastic, with a Selmer-Conn sort of tone – lyrical core like a French saxophone, but big, wide, and lush like a Conn. Palm keys stay nice and fat and full sounding, and don’t thin out, and the tone is nice and medium dark. It brightens up beautifully with a bright mouthpiece, giving you the sort of sound that many players are going for on Conns, but with the SML keywork and other special features that set these horns apart. This has rolled tone holes and is currently original pads. It was one owner until now. Once it’s all overhauled, you will have a top notch pro tenor that feels good under the fingers, tunes well, looks great, and sounds extremely good. I have an SML much like this in my collection, and it’s one of my favorite horns. They usually sell for much more than this price, even with old pads. I have seen a few go for more than twice this price on eBay not too long ago.

  • Ted Klum Tonamax Tenor Mouthpiece Like FL Otto Link Tone Edge

    $ 600

    Ted Klum’s Tonamax is as close as you can get to a vintage Florida Otto Link “Slant” Tone Edge. It plays big, full, medium-dark with a punchy edge, just like a good Link slant. I think it’s a bit more like the earlier ‘No USA’ slant than like the later brighter USA version. Ted’s new ‘Florida Model’ is more like the later Florida Tone Edge or ‘Early Babbitt’ tenor pieces. This Tonamax is like the earlier Slant. I can get you one in any tip opening, in black ebonite, or sometimes in beautiful marbled ebonite.

    Tenor Metal Otto Link Brilhart Reproduction 3 Band Ligature Berg Larsen Dukoff!

    $ 165

    Best ligature around for a metal Otto Link (and similar) tenor mouthpiece! Way better than the stock Otto Link metal top screw ligature, this gives you a much firmer hold on the reed, which greatly improves response and reduces movement or reed swelling on the mouthpiece table. The plastic reed plate fits the reed beautifully and opens up plenty of vibration. No deadening fabrics or strings here. Plus, this is made to the highest standards in South Korea by people who care about quality saxophone equipment. It’s a true reproduction down to the materials used, of the most desirable saxophone ligature ever made. This also fits larger body Berg Larsen and vintage Hollywood Dukoff tenor mouthpieces, and all Otto Link Metal-sized tenor mouthpieces, like Ted Klum Focustone Tonamax, Theo Wanne larger body metal, and many others. See the photos. For thin body metal mouthpieces, get the Guardala sized tenor ligature instead.

    If you want the best ligature for a Berg Larsen metal tenor mouthpiece, this is it. If you want the best ligature for a Dukoff Hollywood or Dukoff Stubby tenor piece, again, this is it.

    This ligature fits all metal Otto Link tenor mouthpieces also – past and present. It fits Masterlink, 4****, ToneMaster, Super ToneMaster NY, FL, Early Babbitt, and regular Babbitt-made pieces. The modern variants like the ‘New Vintage’ NY, Millennium edition etc also all fit.

    Buy with confidence. I take returns, and I stand behind this product. It’s the real deal.

  • Yamaha YTS-475 Intermediate Tenor Saxophone Good Playing Condition Great Value! 298213

    $ 1,600

    Great deal on one of the best intermediate tenor saxophones on the market. The Yamaha 475 is made in Japan and plays a lot like a YTS-62, but costs less. This tenor has been played a fair amount. The pads are sealing pretty well right now, but it is a mix of older and newer pads. The neck had a dent removed, and it was done well, so it looks good now. If you want a very well-built tenor, that feels good, tunes well, and is easy on the budget, this is it. Don’t waste your money on a new no-name sax. Those will be worth peanuts as soon as they are used. Yamaha horns are quality and hold their value really well. You can basically play it and enjoy it and sell it later for right around what you paid. Hard to beat.

  • Yanagisawa TWO-010 Tenor Saxophone Near Mint 348515-1

    Yanagisawa TWO-010 Tenor Saxophone Near Mint Condition Great Deal!

    $ 3,950

    This is a nearly-new Yanagisawa WO-10, which is Yanagisawa’s current model that replaces the 991 series, taking the same “elite professional” spot in their lineup (the “basic professional” spot being held by the 901 previously and the W0-1 currently) and other than being priced like a used horn, it is basically new.  It appears to have been played very little and comes with its original case showing it was bought as Kessler Music, where they sell new for $4900.

    This one appears to be nearly flawless, with just a couple of light scuff marks here and there if I look closely, and it is missing its original mouthpiece that would have come with it.  It plays very well, feeling to have a slightly bigger tone than the 991, and definitely feels lighter and a little more svelte under the fingers than the 991, although it still seems plenty robust.  I’ve seen a few of these since the WO series came out, and besides the confusing branding of of mixing Os and 0s, I really like these horns. Since they are still fairly new, chances to grab one used are few and far between, so I’d be surprised if this one stuck around for too long.  Grab it while you can and enjoy Yanagisawa’s newest professional tenor saxophone at a discount.
