Our Finest Work, Past & Present

Buffet 1972 ‘Super Dynaction (SDA)’ Bb Tenor, #18,73x MINT (Archived)

SOLD - Sound File - The nicest SDA for sale in the world. Mint Condition, Museum worthy! EXCELLENT Original Lacquer is about 98%(due to wear from the stock lacquer). Factually speaking, stories from the owners account for this horn getting a very very short stint playing and then kept in the closet ever since. By my account, the mild lacquer wear on touch points has led me to start connecting stories and other SDA data about the [strength/durability of the Buffet lacquer]. I am starting to piece together historically that these saxes began to gain cracks in the lacquer (beneath, perhaps, as the norm) over time -- from use and, now I see with this sax, simply over time.
COSMETICS: Excellent. very little makings anywhere.
PADS: Original Factory Setup!
CASE: Original Buffet case in excellent condition to match. Even the blue fuzz is pretty!
What a time capsule piece! - includes original Buffet C2 mouthpiece, ligature, and cap also!

Dukoff ‘D6 – Silverite’ C-Melody, Transitional, (WWS Reface) – 0.071″ (Archived)

SOLD - A uniquely, ultra rare Dukoff mouthpiece from Chadd's Collection that matches all the design measurements for a C-Melody mouthpiece.  It was really tricky on arrival and it sent me into heavy research.
The photo comparisons sum it up though. It contained elements from two eras of Dukoff: the Nickel Plated Brass(NPB), and the "Miami, FL" Silverite models:
-made of Silverite
-Vertical "D6" label (like Silverite)
-short shank (like Silverite Alto)
-small bite pad (like NPB model)
-"Dukoff" script (like NPB model)
-Nickel plating over the silverite = True Transitional! wow!
***Reed Window is a match for the length of vintage rubber C-Melody mouthpieces.
