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.

Keilwerth 1962 ‘H&A Selmer-Bundy’ Eb Baritone, Silver #44k (Archived)

SOLD - Vintage 1960s lacquer bari in silver plate and the solid sheet keyguards and plastic pants guard design (keilwerth indicators). Ser. #44K dates it to about 1962. The sax has some dings and wear that I'll give my love. The plastic pants guard has gone missing, so we'll solve that; the neck screw will get replaced; there are a few resolders to mention but overall, "The sax was used, not thrashed" which is about normal for baritones. This model has good ergos compared with other vintage saxes. So when you're after good intonation, solid tone, and good ergos.... these are some of the best you can get for 1) under $3000, but #2) you'll have to give the the Low A key wishes.
SOUND: mid core bark and evenness; not completely resonant like a Buescher/Martin, but not as timid either.
CASE: nice wood case in ok/good shape; shows signs of medium wear and use. Good latches.
Item #: WWS1E1.7E4.74.10301.7-0
