$1,799.00 - There really is no package deal like this one out there. An alto neck Chu C-Melody, in very good condition, with a WWS Rebuild(2017), with mouthpiece and nice case!
$699.00 - 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 - A classic 'alto-neck' C-Melody sax in very good condition. Aside from the 1 post to resolder, the sax has 85%+ silver plate remaining and the bell has the goldplate wash. Sarge always said you want the alto-necked version for better intonation. (?)
REBUILD: Included in the price is a WWS Vintage Standard Rebuild with tan prestini pads and flat metal resos(other options available); natural cork throughout.
CASE: Original conn wood case. in fair condition - functional. It will need treated for vintage odors.
$189.00 - These are cast metal then encased in hard rubber, which made an amazingly warm, but powerful. Measures 3.47" in length. This one is black and I had Bob fill a tooth groove and Bob Carpenter has just refaced it to a 0.086". and it's ready to go.
