  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. Bb Tenor
    Hello sax fiends, I've got two tenors that I am looking to sell. A Selmer Bundy tenor and a Yamaha YTS-61. Question 1) Where can I sell them on here? I looked for about an hour to find the correct forum. Question 2) Anyone have ideas on fair prices for said instruments? The YTS-61 was...
  3. Necks
    Hi all, I'm coming up blank for neck piece options for my circa 1975-85 Bundy. It seems that one needs the actual thing. All the shops I've called have no clue, except I've been told a Buescher won't be the right intonation. Online there's only one I've seen for roughly $400 USD - correct me...
  4. Clarinet
    I just had a Bundy contra in for a look-see. Not much wrong with it, so it was mostly fun getting to blow on a contra again! The serial number has me confused, though, it's #3362! *If* the contras are all part of the Bundy numbering system, that would put it before 1905(!), and we all know...
  5. Buescher
    Hi guys, I am Manoj from Sri Lanka and willing to buy a Saxophone, I am looking for a Old Saxophone cause I have heard that the old saxophone gives a very specific tone, meanwhile found a saxophone that has no any serial number or brand name on it, but i could see some short of details as...
  6. Eb Alto
    Hey there- The title pretty much asks my question-are there bore differences, as in significant playing differences, between the old Kielwerth Bundys, Couf Superba I's, and Kielwerths? The Couf and the Bundy, in particular. I've had a couple of Superba I's-normally I play a 78k VI or a 298k...
  7. Baritone mpc
    I am in the market for a jazz mouthpiece but i need something that will play in tune on my 12m, and i would prefer something that could help me acheive a Gerry Mulligan like sound. Supposedly big chamber mpcs help with the intonation thing, and so i started looking. I have found a few on my...
  8. Selmer (USA)
    Yesterday I bought a Selmer Bundy II alto sax from Craigslist...$100! Play tested it and it looks and works great, may need some work but nothing extensive:bluewink2: The only thing I'm unsure of is the year it was manufactured; I can't find anything online about these student horns! The serial...
  9. Buescher
    Two years ago, I became the lucky owner of a recently overhauled Bundy Baritone Sax. The instrument had belonged to a community band and was in the basement of their building during a major flood; they decided to have it fixed up and sold (for a mere $900!!!!). It's truly a beautiful horn. Only...
  10. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I just picked up a '72 Bundy Alto, serial number 549*** at a garage sale for a song. It has been re-padded once and appears to be in good shape overall, no issues. Pads may need to be replaced again. It's complete; case, accessories, rental payment history starting in '72, etc. Can anyone tell...
  11. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hello! I am trying to find out more about this horn: I have been playing Bari for some years now, but always on a school horn. I recently became more active playing with a couple of local groups and have decided that it is time for me to get my own horn. This George Bundy seems to be in good...
  12. Tenor mpc
    I have played on a lof mouthpieces, but have never been able to get one to reproduce the sounds of a silver brillheart mouthpiece. They sound great and are extremely durable. Anyone have a suggestion for me? Maybe a saxophone mp that sounds close to a brillheart? Thanks!
  13. Bundy (Asian-made)
    Looking at buying a Bundy Alto Sax s/n 920xxx. Current owner unsure of age. One previous owner. Apparently, very little use (2 years in Middle School Band). Trying to determine age and approximate value. Looked on Selmer site and all over Google/Web and cant find list that has this serial...
  14. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I spent a solid ten minutes trying to find a good one (Maybe it's time for a horn identification thread?). Anyway, this one is one the local craigslist. Not really any info given. Don't think it's a Bundy due to the f sharp trill key. Probably a parent...
  15. Stolen Instruments, Music
    Dear Sax friends, It feels like my heart has been ripped out since last week my dearest tenorsax was unlawfully taken from me. If anyone knows any trace leading to the instrument described below, my gratefulness will be eternal and his reward will be plenty. A BLACK coated Selmer (USA) Bundy...
  16. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hey i'm looking for a bass clarinet to double on in the $400-600 range. I'm thinking a student model buffet or selmer from the 60s-70s, preferably low c, and in playable condition with no repairs needed. I live in Ontario, Canada and am fine with paying for shipping as long as its not coming...
  17. Selmer (USA)
    I joined the board because I need help finding out about a saxophone I found in my garage in a house I lived in for several years. In an old beaten up case, I found a 1937 Selmer Bundy Balanced Action alto saxophone, serial number 25xxx. It's in terrible condition, but I'd be interested in...
  18. Clarinet
    Hi all, a friend of mine just acquired a Bundy resonite clarinet, mady by Selmer in Elkhart, with a serial # of 138374. Can anyone point me in the direction of more info on this horn?
  19. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hey all, first post here, but I've been following SotW for a long time now. Every time I Google for anything sax related, these forums always pop up first, so I know this place must be good :D So I recently bought a really old Bundy alto (my first personal horn - have been playing the school...
  20. Late Bloomers
    I'm 47 and I've worked up the courage to actually take lessons to play tenor. I love the "breathy" tones of Ben Webster. I own 5 saxophones(1 soprano, 3 altos, 1 tenor) that I had evaluated by a classical sax player and he basically told me I had a pile of junk. My tenor is a Cleveland King 615...
