  1. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Hi all, (after years of just reading, I'd like to make a first post here, so a short introduction is in place). I'm Teake, playing tenor for about 35 years, in several pop/blues/jazz/gospel/bigband settings. I've got a Vito "Duke" tenor, made in france, nr 18778. Which probably makes it a...
  2. Noblet
    Hello All, I am new to the forum and I am very glad to have joined. Anyways, I VERY recently purchased a Noblet Paris tenor sax from the good people at Saxquest. I plan on doing the work myself to get it into top shape (pray for me). Anyways, it's a very pretty horn, but in spite of all the...
  3. Beaugnier, G. Leblanc & Vito
    After months of always coming back and admiring the posting on eBay for this Beaugnier alto I finally bit the bullet and went for it. I knew going in that it was missing a pad, it is ugly (and I love ugly horns!), and it will eventually need a full repad eventually. Plus the G pad fell out in...
  4. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I have recently bought this tenor saxophone, and i have been searching online for information of this horn. However i cannot find anything about an E. Beuagnier "King" Tenor sax. I found on doctorsax mention of an alto sax in the "King" series but not the tenor. The serial number on the sax is...

    There was a Noblet soprano sax on ebay that I purchased. Got it today. What a beautiful tone! It needs more work than advertised, and it lacks an aux F. The serial number was listed wrongly too, but I'd suspected that. It's a 14xxx. I'm eating my heart out a little because now that I have it in...
  6. Noblet
    I've had this for a while and haven't shared. It's a throaty little thing.
  7. Noblet
    Picked this up last year and finally got it back from my (busy) tech. Posting here to show it off because I know there are some people who are interested in these horns.
  8. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi all, Hoping someone could give me their 3 cents. I was searching for a French Vito Alto with right hand bell keys that was not banged up for my son who plays tenor and wanted to add alto. I found one in the 23K serial number range on ebay. The seller represented that the horn played and...
  9. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I'm wondering if someone has experience with SA, SAII, SAIII tenors. I like to know the similarities and differences in their mechanism and sound quality. Someone was commenting SA80 II has a dark sound but III sounds too thin. Is SA80 better sounding than SA80 II or vice versa? Which one of...
  10. Eb Alto
    Hi, someone is selling one beaugnier sax and I wanted to know first if it was worth it and second if it is in a good price or not. So the owner says it's in reazonable shape, that it's probably from the years 50. It's serial is 4xxx. It's marked as E.BEAUGNIER MANTES PRES PARIS It also...
  11. Beaugnier, G. Leblanc & Vito
    What are the characteristics that one should be looking for in determining if a horn is a Beauginer? If there is another thread that explains this, please point me in that direction, I briefly looked for one buy couldn't find it. Also, other than Vito and LeBlanc, who are some companies that...
  12. Beaugnier, G. Leblanc & Vito
    After having gone through a thousand different mouthpieces trying to find something my Special Perfect likes, I have reached Nirvana. I tried Tonalins, Ebolins, Links(STM and Tone Edge ), Meyers, Vito, Reloplex(not bad), Selmers and I've probably forgotten a few others. I finally pulled out an...
  13. Beaugnier, G. Leblanc & Vito
    recently bought a Revere baritone, some places on the internet mention Revere as a Beaugnier stencil but I don't know. Anyone got any further information on this saxophone? it is still quite leaky, will bring it to my repairguy later this week... curious what will be the result. I've seen...
