$~2,499.00 - For the warm, blend and punch on command, think of a Buescher Aristo 1. Blended dark lacquer colors. It looks like the era of 50s re-lacquer color to me. These Aristocrats are well-loved and respected for a little punch in their warm tone. The bells on this Aristo model have that narrow look, which I think helps add to its unique projection.
$169.00 - This is the 3rd era of the "Soloist" models and basically identical to the [long shank] mouthpieces but with a baffle lowered - made them darker. Made of excellent hard rubber, these mouthpieces have the horseshoe chamber and offer a clean, warm, vintage tone that can do many genres - that's probably helped the demand go up. The tip measures 0.067" which is a little low for C* (0.071) but I will leave it original for now and allow an interested person to love it or discuss altering it.
$599.00 - Looking for an early Otto Link for half the price!? This is your best option! A research piece!: Serial Number 8803 currently not tracked on Theo Wanne mouthpiece info pages - This mouthpiece may be one of the later ones made (1942+). According to Wanne's current listings, the hard rubber Verson 1 & 2 were made from #7895-7900. Version 2(small font) starting in 1940. This mouthpiece is the small font option. At any rate, it was made about 1942 and was perhaps one of the transition pieces into the "Great Neck" model eara. It is my inclination to say: by the end of the run, you can bet they had figured out how to make them well! aka: this could be a good one. These are one of the best Hard Rubber Mouthpieces ever made. These have a a Nice big sound, medium tone, not too dark, not too bright. The rounded side walls and medium+ chamber are very similar to the Otto Links from the same era. It arrived with an original #1 tip - too small to enjoy. So I visited Bob Carpenter and asked him to open it up as far as we can go, hoping to get to 85-95. It maxed out at 0.090", or comparable to about an Otto Link 6.
$1,999.00 - Dark color Gun Metal coloring. Sadly, not original finish, but it oozes the vintage look. Big B's are well-respected and loved saxes. This one just needs our love to bring it back to life.
$2,499/$1,800.00 - New Arrival! A lovely King Zephyr tenor in deep, original lacquer. A full rebuild will put this in competition with those around it.
$2,299.00 - New Arrival - Just in! It's not a complete "looker" but I have some very high expectations that that means it will be a great "player"; as tends to be the case -- ugly ones play better. It is a tricky relac that had me thinking twice because the engraving was well protected. So I suspect it's a factory job.
$5,999.00 - Factory New - This is THE example of all the great German saxes that we've learned to love and respect - think also of the Dave Guardala DG500 models, but with the next tier of improvements! - G# lifter, Screw adjustments on the lower stack - PADS: Tan with metal resos. CASE: original Medusa case with multiple neck slots.
REDUCED $3,589.00 - 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).
