Great old all brass ’37 Zephyr Tenor, in original lacquer, went to California for Christmas ’97




So you believe C-Melodies are obsolete — and good riddance? The demo recording we did of this one before shipment might prompt some fresh thoughts. The instrument wore Conn Reso-Pads that were probably over 50 years old. This is why we recommend the real Conn Reso-Pad for the vintage Conn rolled tone holes saxes: they sound great and last almost forever. For the techs in the audience, they are also a snap to setup and take a very shallow tone hole indentation. The latter is probably a significant factor in the extraordinarily long pad life.


listen to an MP3 of the classic Gershwin saxophone vamp played on this instrument:
Summertime
(for those who’ve asked: mpc is a vintage metal Selmer ‘D’ short shank Jazz model, and accompaniment was generated using Band-in-aBox)

This Conn straight-neck from ’26 (full ‘Chu Berry’ features) now belongs to a real gentleman in Washington State who plays & collects saxes as a hobby. Roger hand polished his sax to absolute brilliance — and graciously provided this new pic. Great job! 




Big Daddy Rabbit . . . 
(as we say where I grew up)
King Super 20 Silver Sonic Tenor.
Solid sterling silver neck & bell. Hard to imagine a bigger, lustier sound from any tenor on the planet. Play these at your own risk — you may want to scrap your Mark VI. Excellent condition & completely original. Never damaged. Solid nickel-silver keys & gold wash in bell. Now resides in NJ with successful CEO & great customer.




Selmer Modele 22  Straight Bb Soprano Sax
The first sax Selmer placed their own name on, after buying out Adolph. This is a very nicely preserved, nickel plated model that went to a friend & instrument dealer near NYC, for his son. Jack is a regular eBay seller & all-around gentleman. Contact him if you don’t see what you want on my pages.




Buffet Super Dynaction Tenor Sax, with large large bore & precise mechanics. These versatile instruments respond well to different mpcs. Legit, if you need it, or as loud & gutty as you want. Extremely well made. It is a mystery why these Super Dynactions are not regarded as peers of their elite *French contemporaries. We don’t throw the word ‘mint’ around foolishly, but if a used sax could warrant the term, this Buffet deserved it. From the late 1960′s & practically perfect. Everything about this sax is classy. Now resides in Houston with a promising young player. (*Try a big Link or a Dukoff on one of these if you think they won’t stand up to a Mark VI !  )




Eventually everything shows up if you look long enough . . .
Left: Completely original Bach Strad Bronx Trumpet from the ’40′s made a Florida friend’s dreams come true.
Right: Virtually perfect Conn Valve T-bone from about 1918, now residing with brassman for T. Monk, Jr.
Below: Gold inlaid Buescher 10-22 trumpet, similar to the one played by Louis Armstrong in the 1920′s
 




Antique Silver Clarinet (by H.N. White-King) 
The American Standard . . . silver plated, one piece metal clarinet, including solid case, mouthpiece & tuning barrel. Of the several of these we have offered this one is probably the sharpest. Restorable, if someone desires to actually play one of these, but a nice display piece, regardless. Lamps made from them are all the rage. This one is a real antique & looks the part. There is such a clamor for these we threw one in …




Conn “Chu Berry” tenor sax. Great old player from 1929 in near perfect silver plate. Big, booming voice & completely responsive. No wonder old Chu would never switch to Selmer! The Conn saxes introduced in the mid-1920′s were the class of their time. In the 1930′s Selmer began to make in-roads, and by the time the Balanced Action Selmers were introduced many good players switched. Chu Berry was a jazz artist of the period who continued to play his 1920′s Conn tenor despite the fact that many of his peers were switching to Selmers. Chu died in a car crash in about 1937, and played an old Conn until his death. This old “Chu” now resides in Idaho with a promising young player. The young lady appropriately named the sax “Romeo” because of its provocative tone !!!

King Super 20 Baritone Sax
Beautiful all-brass version of King’s best baritone sax, with solid nickel-silver keys. A masterfully relacquered sax with a huge, booming sound (look at that bell flare). If anything, even more responsive than the 12M in my collection (which I would never have thought possible). This King  bari is incredibly easy blowing, top to bottom, and will rattle the windows or effortlessly ease out it’s low Bb at PPP — a real player’s horn now residing in Michigan with a promising young bari specialist.




Gemeinhardt Model M3S Solid Silver French Flute
Open holes & B-foot.  All three pieces are solid sterling silver. Now in loving Christian hands, destined to sing praises for a long, long time . . .




King Super 20 Alto
Solid silver neck — a real wailer from the late 1960′s. Immaculate but for about 30% natural lacquer wear. Obviously played, but well maintained — for what better life could a fine pro sax wish?
