  1. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    I'm playing a Yamaha 5C on my YAS-23 alto. I was checking to see what mouthpieces are available just to try to brighten up my sound. My tone sounds more classical than Jazzy and thought I might experiment a bit. When I saw a $25 metal hi baffle mouthpiece on ebay like this one, I hought it would...
  2. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    The guy claims its the "final version of the conn 12m" but it has modern keywork, and modern keyguards. https://www.ebay.com/itm/254550245867
  3. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I just discovered this silver plated German tenor of a manufacturer that I had never seen anywhere before. It's a Sinfonia model made by Wero Roth, a small East German saxophone company founded by Werner Roth in 1949. It ceased producing in 1972 which I imagine explains why so few of their saxes...
  4. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    After the financial crisis, I consistently lost money on sax items I sold on ebay, so I stopped...however, I recently sold a bunch of sax stuff on ebay for the first time in six years or so (I continued to buy stuff on ebay) and I thought I'd share my experiences and maybe the members have...

  7. Ida Maria GRASSI
    Since I've studied every Grassi photo I can find trying to prove the Grassi-ness of my stencil bari (more on that another day) I just saw a "Grassi" bari on Ebay (ends tomorrow) that seems to me to be something else entirely!! I see the engraving, and the logo (looks odd) but every "tell" I've...
  8. Martin
    I've played tenor for years, but I've never really played alto and always wanted to. So I bought a 1928 Handcraft alto on eBay for $500. The horn arrived and, though it's not in terrible shape, it's also not as good as the seller described -- I took it to my tech and he said most of the pads...
  9. Contrabass and Lower
    Someone has posted a Conn EEb on eBay. (It apparently needs an overhaul, but that's the price of finding one that hasn't been in circulation.) I used to own a contrabass sarrusophone (of a different make), and loved it - big ballsy sound combined with (relatively) light weight and saxophone...
  10. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hey everyone! I finally manage to save some money to get a YTS-62 (I have a cheap sax and need to replace it, even if I'm not that good). I was browsing through shops and found out that the YTS480 costs around 2000€ and the YTS62 around 2500€ - I think it is worth it to push it down another...
  11. What to Buy & Why: Saxophones
    Hi everyone, I've played piano my entire life and will be majoring in music this coming fall when I leave for college. About two years ago, I began playing bassoon and I absolutely love it, and now I want to buy myself a saxophone. I think it would be more of a hobby than anything, but if I have...
  12. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hi All, I was reading a little about how to spot a relacquer in other posts. I had once heard that if the bell seam was still visible along the front of the bell and the front bell lip then it's original such as in the following photo...

  14. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I am a tenor sax player wanting to play bari sax badly. The only problem is I don't own a bari and the school has two but the nicer and newer one is already taken by a junior (its a Buffet bari, I don't know the model because she won't let anybody near it) and the other one is barely playable...
  15. Buescher
    So, tomorrow (Monday) I plan on buying a 1926 Buescher True Tone Series III alto sax. This will be my first time playing a vintage horn, and I really have no experience with them. I have listened to the True Tone horns being played, and I am certain this is what I want. The price is relatively...

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-Silver-SML-Strasser-Marigaux-Rev-D-Alto-Saxophone-just-overhauled-/171129385613 I've contacted the seller music-oldtimer-com that this horn is not a 'Rev. D' but instead a Rev. B era (early 1940s) 'Standard' which uses 'Rev. A' tooling and lacks many features...

The listing said that the...
  18. General Discussion
    Okay, I'm a bit confused - because there's no photo of the serial - are they saying the serial # is 114 or are they saying 114-146 because that's a misreading of the brand's street address... hmm, either way it is old! Split bell keys, lots of old trill keys but otherwise wearing the usual...

  20. Cannonball
    Hi all, I've been a lifelong Bari player but due to financial circumstances I am selling my Raven Big Bell Baritone on eBay. I already posted a link in the For Sale section of this site but I wanted to get it in front of some more eyeballs, specifically Cannonball aficionados. (Mods, if this...
