SOLD - Vintage JK tone that is smokey and fills the room. It has rolled tone holes and the "JK Best in the World" stamp on the rear tube. It is mostly in the bare brass body from the lacquer falling off, and the nickel plated keywork is in great shape and strong as expected.

REDUCED $2,599.00! - was $3,249.00 - 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.

SOLD - (WWS Rebuild + Sound File!) The rare OLDs Super... These are strongly linked to Martins - think: Committee 1 & 2 blended.
We had a special rebuild/restoration planned for this one. We were planning to help the dings in the body, spot silver plate some of the wear and help it get new pads. The horn is owned by my apprentice, Sean, and he'll be putting new pads, corks, and oils throughout. This is a fun one that I'm happy to help with some of the improvements also; we will bring this one back to a respectable look, playability and you'll get to enjoy it for years to come.
CASE: A vintage wood case, from the HA Selmer bundy (JK) era.
REBUILD: WWS Standard: Prestini Tan pads, Resos at 60%+ (flat nickel with rivet), natural cork throughout, plus extra love for OLDS keywork. Ask me about special gold plating on the engraving or other ideas that we are considering.
2016 added research (to be continued): Prior to growing internet knowledge, Sarge used his collection and experience to help with the history and profiles on saxes. This horn needs an update to documentation: The CA company employed a former Martin employee. Thus the strong link in design from Martin. Was is made by Martin?-No; but you can clearly see the direct similarities.
SOLD - Yep. The Bomb right here. The handmade greatness. The sound is awesome; made to mimic King Curtis--Sarge's favorite--there is a high baffle and cutout. The Brecker handmade model screams! Very bright with strong power and depth, super free blowing.
SOLD - 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
