Conn 1921 ‘New Wonder I’ Bb Soprano, Curved, Silver #72,71x

$2,399.00 - Rebuilt by WWS a few years ago and has very low playing hours. #72k, Keyed to F!, Finish: Original Silver with gold wash bell. There are only a few curved sopranos we can recommend. This is one! Having the high-F key and it being in great shape overall make this one to pursue. No major damage to report except that I will resolder the bell guard foot. The sax is in great shape cosmetically.
CASE: Comes with a nice hard case in good shape.

Yamaha 1980s ‘YSS-62 “Purple Logo”‘ Bb Soprano, #10,8xx

$3599.00 - Highly sought after "purple logo" YSS-62 - Serial # 10,8xx, original lacquer in good, used, condition. Keyed to high F# also. It's in relatively clean condition with the pictures telling the story; I'll note the upper pip either has an acid bleed or a light resolder. This sax was owned by an adult player and played/loved well. It arrived to WWS with the many of the original factory pads in it. It does decent right now to test and get a vibe on its tone and ergos - I like it. (This is the older, deeper tone from the "purple logo" era.)
REBUILD: (Included) - TBD - It will get a WWS Standard Rebuild included and be a sweet soprano for your collection and enjoyment. You can order it and help choose the setup. However, left to my own methods, I would do a similar setup as the factory original.
CASE: Original hard case.
This is a Consignment instrument, however, is being sold as a normal WWS inventory which will include a rebuild to your personal specifications.

Selmer 1998 ‘Super Action 80 – Series III’ Bb Soprano, #572,xxx

$6,199.00 - (On Consignment: plays excellent) A like-new condition sax that is priced lower than all other "new" models! It was originally bought by a clarinet player: "The sax has about 10 hours of playing time on it, and has lived in the closet." He and I agree; it's time to find the next musician to love this instrument. There's not much to say about these saxes; they sell themselves. It comes with a Selmer C* rubber mouthpiece and two necks, curved and straight.
CASE: Original, in excellent condition. Black felt wrap-bag included.
PADS: Original, like-new, metal resonators. Item #:WWS0W0.451.7-DSConsignment

Other: ‘Marveltone’ Soprano, (WWS reface)- 0.067″

$77.00 - Made of hard rubber, it maintains a nice warmth. It arrived with a tiny 0.052 tip so I opened it up to 0.067". It responds very nice with a 2.5 reed and has strong presence and focus. I would call this a 'short shank' style; it also has a noticeable tight, smaller shank to fit on your neck cork(12.85mm vs. a modern C* 13.55mm). Medium round chamber. sorry, no ligature included. a rovner soprano will work great.
