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!
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.
$7,500.00 - Exquisite, Rare, Beautiful. Extremely Clean. In original, burnished gold plate and in fantastic condition. Is there anything that I can really say here? This deluxe 6M is one of the first as they came off the line.
SOLD - Rare Streamline (thinner) model with in fantastic condition. With AB ligature. Great for the player with alto embouchure; but really for the collector
SOLD - SOUND FILE - One of the top-10 most desired soprano saxophones, and a one-owner at that. This "purple logo" YSS-62R - series II - Serial #10,1xx, was bought new in early 1990. It's original lacquer is in very good condition and shows proof of use and very good care. Keyed to high F#. Unique tone is WARM and CRISP all at the same time.
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.
SOLD $10,000 - Rose Gold plated Committee II Tenor, lacquer coated body! From Sarge's Collection - the rarest of the rare... The story?!: It was built by the Martin Company for a top salesman... Sarge was the 3rd owner. Will you be the 4th? It's a 1939 Martin with Serial #133,585 on neck and body. Older pads that play and an old Martin Committee 2 case as well.
