King 1958 ‘Super 20’ Bb Tenor, #362k

$4,999.00 - Nice original lacquer super 20, with the Serial number 362,xxx dates it to roughly 1958. What I really love is the rich, big tone. Super 20's are more or less divided up into 3 categories, early, middle and late production, this one falls in the middle and has a great balance of sound. The King horns sure get my vote and I gig with them often. This one is yet to be rebuilt and will need such to be rockin'. No major dents to worry about; a few pings in the body or backside(some I removed before photos). The bell interior will be washed and treated to help remove the green during a rebuild here. Price includes a killer rebuild and I'd love to help you set it up to your liking. CASE: original King case (note: no end cap for tighter fit inside the case.)

Selmer 1988 ‘USA – AS100’ Eb Alto, Silver Plate #824k

REDUCED $2,299.00 - A entry-professional Selmer from the late 1980s - Model AS100(Omega). At #824k I will estimate its dating at 1988. Rare Silver plate in 97% condition. These are one of the best kept secrets in the sax world.--pro sax, "selmer", with all the ergos and tone you're after. Most people mistake the "USA" on the bell for the later student-line. Do not be fooled! She arrived with a few missing screws (I will replace with silver ones to match!) Future Rebuild: The specifics are yet to be decided. I would love to plan a Full Rebuild on this one with special pads and/or resonators. I'll shine up all the silver, and help her sing the doors down! Comes with a great Selmer hard case (like the Series I, II, III have) without the leather wrap, although the handles were repaired. Ask me about those.
Cosmetic Rating: 9.0
This sax will be a super cool sax!

Famous for Solid Nickel keywork, soldered on toneholes, heavy walled body, big warm tone. This is a very well done relacquer, with the engravings still looking good, as seen in the pics. It has the Eagle with star and Skyline with searchlights engraving and adjustable thumb rest. Comes with a vintage faux-alligator like case. There are no major dents just a few small ones that i will remove, when i do a complete "Vintage style" rebuild on her (included in the price)

Selmer 1987 ‘USA – TS100’ Bb Tenor, #826,5xx (Archived)

SOLD - One of the secret gems in the whole sax world! I have plans with this sax to be a great Pro Tenor for a player on a "budget". Let me explain: a Pro, Selmer, Tenor... for under $3000. That is a very hard thing to offer. I'll do my best to help you all out.
CASE: original hard case in good+ shape, hard wood rectangle style, added latch.
Serial #826,5xx, Original lacquer finish at 65%. It was worked on to 'ok playing' condition and I want to have you help make it your own. It had lost the pants guard & F# guard--I'll try to add a proper replacements. This sax also had some neck repairs done that are worth mentioning. I gave that some love and helped round out the tubing. I will also do more during the repair work.

Conn 1931 ‘New Wonder II – “Chu Berry”‘ Eb Alto, Art Deco-custom #244k

$1,449.00 - Ser # 244,xxx, a 1931 model. Another Great "Chu" with Art Deco engraving, nailfile G#, rolled tone holes, tuning neck, everything we love. It has been very nicely relacquered and looks nice and vintage (see pics). I repaded it, with a Conn-style, standard repad (aka, a vintage rebuild). Sarge decided to send it off to Sherry Huntley and have it re-engraved to make this Deco-style bell really pop out (also secretly adding Silver on the engraving for blend/pop). Classic vintage Conn hard case included.

Selmer 1963 ‘Mark VI’ Bb Tenor, #108k

SOLD - #108k, player/collector's delight, ORIGINAL lacquer 85%! Will need a full rebuild to be fully enjoyable, however, I will tune it up so that you can play test it on the old pads. There are signs of past dent work in the bell and bow, one noticeable dent on the front bow guard, evidence of minor pull-down that was repaired well.
SOUND: This sax has a great resemblance in sound to the early 5-digit selmers. NOTE: rumor has it that the great craftsmen of the late 50s were still working on the Mark VIs through about #110xxx. This means that you can have that 5-digit tone in a sax like this and save $1000-4000 off that early-era pricing.
CASE: used protec case(blue) in nice shape.
