Conn 1932 ‘[Pan-Am] – Geo M. Bundy’ Eb Alto, Silver #47k

SOLD - This is a sweet little alto that is a Conn Pan-Am sax with a few unique parts. It has a robust tone and is 50% vintage in the tone; the resos boost the treble/presence yet it is not as shrill as a modern student sax. Come quick!
Rebuilt elsewhere with MusicMedic pads and resos.

Plays excellent!
CASE: older Protec case in great condition!
Consider it an above-student sax, to intermediate level vintage sax. What an option. This is a bargain sax for the right person who is looking for this specific sax.

Keilwerth 1964 ‘[Tone King] – Selmer MAJOR’ Bb Alto, #51k

$1,499.00 - A pro sax that is hidden by the other popular name on the bell. But the key guard design, and the plastic pants guard, serial stamping, and keywork will label it as a full-blooded Julius Keilwerth sax. All JK Stencils has the high-quality metal from JK. And to my knowledge, there is no bad-JK-stencil. The original finish is in good shape overall; the photos show the wear. This is the TONE KING model design, and the early era with Rolled Tone Holes.
SOUND: These are supremely warm and meaty. Power, harmonics, rich, fat.... all are terms that would be used to describe this one.
REBUILD: I'd like to sell this with a full rebuild, and set it up to your specifications because it is playing on the original pad setup and it beginning to show age beyond what will be enjoyable. Let's discuss what you'd like; otherwise, I can put the JK Standard setup on it: seamless-domed, nickel resonators, on tan pads.
CASE: original case in pretty worn condition. I haven't given up saving it for use; but I am leaving the option to upgrade the case to a new one (the price would jump up also, at cost). Protec XL model recommended.

Jupiter ‘JTS-889SG’ Bb Tenor, #E20,xxx (Archived)

SOLD - A great sax in great condition! I like these as a great intermediate sax. Great Ergos, high F# key, nice original hard case. Made in Taiwan, #E0225x Model JTS-889.  Sterling silver neck! Currently in factory pads that come with slight-domed metal resonators. These have fast action and you'll love it over any student sax. They play a little louder with power and presence.
Cosmetic Rating: 9.0 -- Nice, minor tarnishing to note on the silver body.
CASE: Yes, the original hard case in "ok/good" condition. (There was a slight scent on arrival; it isn't something worthy of discarding the case so I will treat it with my deodorizers.)
All Student/Intermediate saxes come with, at least, a mouthpiece... and usually anything that came in the case with that sax.

Keilwerth 2001 ‘EX-90 Series II’ Bb Tenor, #113k

$1,849.00 - An intermediate sax with the big brother as the SX90(pro model). You'll love the pro build in quality and slick keys. As a fellow JK (couf) player, the main difference I noticed was the side Bb-C-E placement. It was very close to the body. Perhaps this is a design for smaller hands to not bump them.
SOUND: full of harmonics, like the JK sound is known for. "meaty, robust, round, full".
PADS: It has what seems like mostly original factory pads with nickel resos (domed with rivet center). they have a good pad life left and should be good, with normal, mild maintenance, for the about 2-7 years.
CASE: original case in good, working order; but note the wear and tear to the styrofoam backing in the interior.
This sax was given a recent tuneup on arrival here at WWS. You should be able to leave with this sax and enjoy it right away.

Keilwerth ‘ST-90, Series 1’ Eb Alto, #655k (Archived)

SOLD - I like the series 1 for the REAL pearls. Although no high F# key (just fine for learning). All student saxes come with mouthpiece and case. (sometimes a few other misc accessories in the case. A strong, German design. I love these students saxes because (bias - I play on a JK tenor) they don't sound like other student saxes! - they have more meat in the tone; even across the student models.
CASE: a new case paired with it!
Cosmetic Rating: 7.5
PC work complete.

Jupiter ‘Capital Edition, Model CES-760’ Eb Alto, #TF50,18x

$600.00 - Package deal - accessories in the case. I like these as a good "all round" starter sax (one of a few that meet this). Great Ergos, High F# key, silver neck, nice original hard case. Made in Taiwan, #TF50,18x Model CES-760. These models are newer to the market, my guess, since 2005 or so. This one looks like it was used for only 1-4 years.
PADS: in great original condition. I will likely be changing 1 pad, the other 3 potentials show "Medium" wear.
Cosmetic Rating: 9.0 -- Nice
Waiting for PC work
