  1. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I recently bought 2 altos (I believe they are the exact same make and model). Both go down to only B, have double octave key mechanisms, and lack other various modern keywork. I know of a few manufacturers who made horns similar to these back in the early 1900's or late 1800's, but I can't...
  2. Tenor mpc
    So Ive been searching on the internet for quite some time now and I just cant find what brand of tenor mouth piece this is. It is simply four shapes one next to another: upside down triangle, square with a sun/asterisk thing on top of it, plus sign, oval. Ive also attached a picture. Thanks for...
  3. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    What is your favorite make, model, and year/decade of alto pre-1980? I don't think I'll be able to fix my 1920s King so I'm looking to get a different old horn. Any thoughts or suggestions?
  4. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    I'm sure there's probably a thread on here about this, but I can't find it. What my question is exactly is what makes a $6000 sax more expensive than a $2000 sax. Here are some components that I've come up with, but they don't really add up... Structure - intonation and tone. Unless there is...
  5. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    A few years ago, I bought an Alto Saxophone from a schools band auction. It is a very nice looking instrument and it has a decorative engraving on the back side of it. On the front side of the bell, it says 'U.S.A. Crestmont Woodwinds" and the Serial Number is AS-02L10001. I've been looking for...

    Hi there, there's a guy selling this C Melody tenor and I was wondering if anyone knows this brand and how much would it be worth. I can't really read what it says, but maybe you can identify it. Thanks
  7. Bb Soprano
    So i am in Brasil at the moment and i went into a store to look for just a MIDI to USB cable but ended up looking at some saxophones they had. I saw 2 sopranos (i want one lol) and asked to look at it. he gave me a used one to look at and hold. it was 999 real about US$700-800 i would think. i...

    I would appreciate help identifying this saxophone. This is the best picture available. Any and all conjectures are welcome.
  9. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Does anybody have any recent experience with System '54 saxophones? Yesterday I tried a new System'54 Superior Class tenor and I'm seriously thinking about buying one for classical use (orchestra & quartet). Any thoughts?...
