JUST IN - $ TBD - "Affordable Music Man" or a "Silver Restoration Candidate"! Serial #218k. There were also some bumps and repairs along the way - hey, at least she got played and repaired for the sake of music.
$1,599.00 - I like these as a great intermediate sax. Great Ergos, high F# key, nice original hard case. Made in Taiwan, Model JTS-889 (the model era makes me guess the year around 2000.). Sterling silver neck! Currently in factory pads that come with slight-domed metal resonators. These have fast action and you'll love it over most any student sax. They play a little louder with power and presence. (from the silver ringing) Cosmetic Rating: 9.0 -- Nice! Minor tarnishing can begin on the silver body.
$1,499.00 - A lovely King Zephyr tenor in lacquer. Nice case. This is a very vibrant and pretty sax. The lacquer color is a deep yellow and the shine pops - see photos!
The lacquer was quick tricky on this one as some Kings had shading and poor prep from the factory. However, the proof on this one for me was the very light wear under the lacquer at a few touch points. It was very hard to see! So this one is a "very good/nice relacquer" because they preserved the engraving very well also.
PADS: are older and look like the original era. Although old, that quality was amazing!
CASE: a brand new Protec case!
REDUCED $4,049.00 - silver Conn 10M, silver bell interior - A great era 10M seeking your love. This sax is in very good condition.
REBUILD/PADS: This sax was rebuilt by WWS in 2012 and played by a growing musician. The setup was given our "Vintage Standard" to maintain the classic Conn sound. Also the bell interior was cleaned up and freshly silver plated at that time for the owner. The sax has a lot of life left in the pads and we can discuss that in further detail for your needs. We will look over the sax and it will leave WWS "playing excellent" for many more gigs.
CASE: original, vintage Conn case in Good/ok shape (totally functional and usable).
REDUCED $2,599.00! - was $3,249.00 - Custom Rebuild with Brown Chocolate Kangaroo Pads, and Gold plated (over silver) custom over-oversized Resotech resos (Flat, with matte spun finish). ***THIS IS A LOUD ALTO SAX!*** Ser.# m234,xxx dates to 1930. Excellent condition "Chu" with nailfile G#, rolled tone holes, tuning neck, Goldwash bell, everything we love. Original gold plate and Satin gold highlights model, in very nice overall condition. Now, if you've never played a Chu, they are stunningly powerful altos...big fat sound top to bottom. Ergos are not that great, but I know a lot of players that play them in spite of the 20's design and would never switch to a Selmer. I will repad it, with a Conn-style, french standard repad. Pairing an original old Conn case to go with it.
Item #: WWS5.0S0.411.6-C16
Massive reduction! NOW $4,249.00 - (On Consignment: plays excellent) A like-new condition sax that is priced lower than all other "new" models! It was originally bought by a clarinet player: "The sax has about 10 hours of playing time on it, and has lived in the closet." He and I agree; it's time to find the next musician to love this instrument. There's not much to say about these saxes; they sell themselves. It comes with a Selmer C* rubber mouthpiece and two necks, curved and straight.
CASE: Original, in excellent condition. Black felt wrap-bag included.
PADS: Original, like-new, metal resonators. Item #:WWS0W0.451.7-DSConsignment
SOLD - A gorgeous Selmer "Super Action 80 - Series III". By it's beauty you can see that it was well-loved and cared for. It is the no-engraving model. This was adult-owned (!) by a local player/band teacher. Thus, Why is he selling it? - his ears are being drawn to another maker. I played on a SA80ii for 10 years and can tell you that this horn can do everything you need it to. Only negative to mention: some dent repair in the neck wall. I made the photo of this purposely look bad in the light so that you could see it (it hides at different angles). There are very very minor scratches too.
$5,799.00 - A drop dead gorgeous TMB - original lacquer at 98%, $1,000 Bam flight case, Newer pads, 1-2 Mouthpieces included. You don't see vintage horns like this that often.
