LeBlanc 1964 ‘Rationale System’ Bb Tenor, w/ F#, #790

SOLD - SOUND FILE - Sax-tastic Fascination! Likely only 200-400 ever made & this one is in excellent condition! Made to solve most all of the "saxophone issues" such as stuffy notes, trouble intonation areas and note passages, these Leblanc saxes have extra keys and pads. Try this one out! This is the highest serial number on my records!

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

SOLD - SOUND FILE - 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.

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.
