  1. Bb Tenor
    Hi everyone! I'm on a hunt for a solid tenor. I'm finished my classical saxophone masters last year, my main instrument is alto (Selmer III). I played a lot of tenor at my university (Selmer II) and now I want to buy something on my own. I also play some jazz/funk/rock, so what I'm looking for...
  2. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi all - apologies if this appears twice but I posted 18 hours ago and the topic still hasn't appeared, so I'm trying again as the question is urgent! I have about 6 hours left to tell a private seller whether I want to purchase this sax or not! I'm new here but have been reading for months. I...
  3. Keilwerth/H-Couf
    I have a bit of a Christmas present for any of you Couf lovers out there. After more than a month of researching, writing, and putting it all together in one very heavily illustrated page, I published the first of my H. Couf pages on my website today. The goal when I undertook this was to...
  4. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    I was checking out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haEU1Cdkee8 It's clearly visible around 6:30. Seems like Kirk Whalum's got a new saxophone. Looks like he's using a Vintage SX90R. I hope Keilwerth at least gave him this one considering how faithful of a Keilwerth endorser he is.
  5. Keilwerth/H-Couf
    Heya all, I recently acquired a Julius Keilwerth EX90 Series III alto. I'm in love with the way it looks, and the ergonomics, but not with the way it sounds. I currently play on a Beechler Bellite 7, with either Rico Jazz Select 3S reeds or Legere Signature 2.5 (depends on the venue). My main...

    Neck for H-Couf Superba I Bari? Hi - I posted on the Parts Wanted forum, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to also post in the H-Couf/Keilwerth forum... I have a H Couf Superba I bari that got off eBay a couple of years ago. It didn't have the original neck, but the seller included a Yamaha (I...
  7. Baritone mpc
    Hi All - I have a H Couf Superba I bari (Keilwerth) and I've recently started playing in a local community band. I've tried a few mouthpieces, but none seem to be the right one. 1. Yamaha 5C - sounds ok in middle register, but lower notes are harder to get out and higher notes don't sound...
  8. Tenor mpc
    Hello everyone, I have a Lebayle LRII metal tenor MPC which I am using right now with JAVA red 2.5 on my keilwerth SX90.. I love the tone and the power of the MPC but I am not a big fan of its performance.. Just wondering if anyone knows similar mpcs with relatively close tonal qualities...
  9. What to Buy & Why: Saxophones
    Hello, I'm a beginner, and i have been offered a 60's Vintage Keilwerth Toneking Tenor, completely restored (650€ bill!) for 1.300€. My teacher does not know this saxophone, and he told me that i have to look at the ergonomics, weight (and, of course, value). Does anyone know about the...
  10. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hello everyone, I'm new here. Been playing guitar for the past 10 years and 2 years ago I started playing alto sax. Few months ago, I bought a cheap tenor sax and I found myself like the tenor a bit more than the alto.. I'm progressing pretty fast playing 1-1.5 hrs daily. My tenor sax is...
  11. Keilwerth/H-Couf
    So i'm now a proud owner of this beauty. Before anyone knocks it (if anyone would...) I am NOT a fan, in any way, shape or form, of the lucite keyguards. So, when I found this thing on eBay, I had to have it. I use a Runyon 9 smooth bore metal and the color contrast and the engraving are simply...

  15. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Hi I'm wondering what your opinions an these two altos are and which one you would buy for large jazz band work and why. Thanks
  16. Keilwerth/H-Couf
    Msg me if you are in the market to sell. It needs to be in playable condition. I love these horns but I can't find them anywhere but Ebay and then its hit and miss. Thanks, Georgia

  19. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    How many euros should I pay for a used EX90 II tenor? The serial number starts 113... so if I read the Keilwerth serial number charts correctly it should be late 90s, early 00s model.
