1946 Conn 10M Tenor Sax - SOLD

A beautiful silver tenor from the best era of 10M (in my opinion of course!).  These late rolled-tone-hole horns have everything in vibe (!) and build quality that the 1930s models have, but with a more modern mechanism.  This horn has more than 85% of its silver plate still intact and in great condition - just needs a good polish to bring the shine back, if you so desire.  This horn is fresh off of the bench here where it got a neck fit and a full adjustment throughout.  Currently needs nothing and it's playing beautifully big, warm, and balanced, come by and check it out, this one won't be here long.

Buffet "Super Dynaction" Tenor Saxophone - SOLD

Buffet Super Dynaction saxophones were made in Paris quite close to where the legendary Selmer factory was, and were intended as direct competition to the Mark VI instruments.  For whatever reason they never quite received the same status, but they are definitely worthy competition, and now represent a fantastic value in a classic top-professional instrument that oozes tone and character.  These instruments have great, fast keywork, and a beautiful dark, singing sound.  

This tenor was made in 1963 and is in stunning condition, still playing well on older pads.  There is a little lacquer missing in a few spots but the instrument is generally in fantastic original shape.  This one also comes in its original faux-gator case - very retro-cool!

Buffet "Super Dynaction" Alto Sax - SOLD

Buffet Super Dynaction saxophones were made in Paris near the legendary Selmer factory, and were intended as direct competition to the Mark VI instruments.  For whatever reason they never quite received the same status, but they are definitely worthy competition, and now represent a fantastic value in a classic top-professional instrument that oozes tone and character.  These instruments have great, fast keywork, and a beautiful dark, singing sound.  

This 1961 alto is in great condition, playing well on older pads.  It has a nice comfortable modified front-f key and has a custom neck emblem added.  There is a little lacquer missing as a result these 2 solder jobs but the instrument is in otherwise near-mint condition.  Also in stock here is one of the original hard rubber mouthpieces that came with these instruments, also in great shape (for sale separately)  - they do seem to play really well together.  

This horn has sold we do have another one about to be listed - Make an appointment to come by and check it out!

Vintage Selmer Bass Clarinet - SOLD

Selmer professional bass clarinets from the 1950's and 60's are well known for their sound and very high standard of craftsmanship.  This one from 1954 is no exception, and it is made of some of the prettiest pieces of Grenadilla I have ever seen.  Keyed to low E, this instrument packs up small in a compact case and is nice and light around the neck when playing standing.  This one has had some past dent repair on the neck but everything looks nice and straight now.  Currently sealing reasonably well on older pads - ask about bundling the purchase with a full overhaul and polish to really bring out the best this beastie has to offer!

Selmer "La Voix" Alto - SOLD

Perfect as a big step-up from a student instrument, this is a beautiful upper-intermediate level alto sax in as-new condition.  Beautiful rose-brass body and lacquered keywork make this one stand out in looks as well as sound.  These saxophones are very well respected by teachers and players alike - it has a full, round sound and excellent sturdy keywork.  Don't confuse this instrument with the Chinese made "La Voix II" instruments currently on the market, these original La Voix horns are made in Taiwan to a much higher quality standard.  This horn has been inspected and will be set up with a new neck cork to play great and offers fantastic value at this price.  Comes with a very high quality French-made BAM case and a Selmer professional mouthpiece.

1932 Selmer "Super" Tenor Sax sOLD

A pretty rare and unique horn that plays like nothing out there.  Has that beautiful dark core that all old Selmers have, very similar response and tone to a Balanced Action, maybe even more resonant.  Keywork is very light and fast and feels great - much more refined than Conns / Kings / Martins etc. from this era.  Recently overhauled and currently set up, playing great, and needing nothing - you have to try this one if you are in the market for a pro tenor with character that is only going to keep going up in value.

Conn "Chu Berry" Alto Sax - SOLD

Huge sounding silver plated "Chu" alto from 1925, freshly overhauled and set up to roar.  Original silver plate is worn at the touch spots (it's 90 years old!) but it still shines up nicely, along with the classic gold-wash bell.   Of course this only shows that it plays too well to have been left in the case!
