Keilwerth 1963 ‘The New King’ Bb Tenor, Black Nickel, #47k

$3,999.00 - Here is a very early example of black nickel plating! Wow - it is the oldest serial number of such finish that I've got my hands on and I really want to keep this one.  It has rolled tone holes, the "JK" tube stamp, solid sheet guards, and the early era pearls (normal sized, not the huge JK ones we know know). Serial number #47k matches on the neck and body.

Jupiter ‘Capital Edition CES-770 II’ Bb Tenor, #UF01285(Archived)

SOLD - A great sax with 1-year warranty! - I looked at the serial number an read "UFO..."; It must be out of this world! Great Ergos, high F# key, nice new case. Made in Taiwan, These have fast action and you'll love it over most any student sax. The neck is original and silver with this model and is credited with a crisper, clearer presence in the tone.

Conn 1930 ‘New Wonder II – “Chu Berry”‘ Eb Alto, Gold #234k

SOLD - Custom Rebuild with Brown Chocolate Kangaroo Pads, and Gold plated (over silver) custom over-oversized Resotech resos (Flat, with matte spun finish). ***THIS IS A LOUD ALTO SAX!*** Ser.# m234,xxx dates to 1930. Excellent condition "Chu" with nailfile G#, rolled tone holes, tuning neck, Goldwash bell, everything we love. Original gold plate and Satin gold highlights model, in very nice overall condition. Now, if you've never played a Chu, they are stunningly powerful altos...big fat sound top to bottom. Ergos are not that great, but I know a lot of players that play them in spite of the 20's design and would never switch to a Selmer. I will repad it, with a Conn-style, french standard repad. Pairing an original old Conn case to go with it.
