  1. Rampone & Cazzani
    I have an old R&C silver alto manufactured in 1920s (info from R&C themselves), what value might the saxophone have? The finish is very worn and it has a crack where the neck screw is attached, but it is still very playable.
  2. Flute & Piccolo
    Looking for any information on who made the Silversonice flute that I have. I have contacted Sankyo and they said it is not a flute made by them. Thanks for any info! It is marked: Hand Made, Silversonic, SUPERISED BY, S.S.F-385S, USA
  3. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    So I'm in the market for a new sax, and I'm looking at the Yamaha YAS 62III. There is a silver model (which i really like) and a normal gold lacquer version. I was wondering what the difference in sound would be vs the two. I'm a classical player too.
  4. B&S, Guardala and Huller
    Hello all. I'm selling my silver Guardala tenor. Made in Germany, New York series, serial 013,xxx. It's in fabulous condition, almost all of the original silver still remains. Just a few scratches and wears on the back where the neck strap hooks. I'm a pro player, and have kept it well...
  5. Sax Body and Finish
    Hey ya'll - Thanks in advance for the responses. I've got a silver plated Mark VI tenor that I'd like to polish up. I was planning to take the time and do it on my own. I realize in doing that, I may not be able to reach all of the hard to reach spots and I'm not comfortable taking it apart...
  6. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I recently came across a Selmer Tenor Sax, silver plated, serial 18*** and liked the sound of it even though it needs a complete overhaul. I don't know anything about the super/cigar cutter but found it to be more like a Conn. Anyway I am wondering how much a horn like that is worth? As I wrote...

    Hey Guys, It's been a while since I've been active on here but I'm happy to be back. I'm hoping someone can help me out. I've got a beautiful Mark VI Silver Plated 93,XXX serial number. It's my baby. This year I was away from my horn most of the year and when I opened her back up I noticed a...
  8. Selmer (Paris)
    Hi! I recently bought a new Selmer Balanced Action tenor. I assumed that the horn was silver plated, but after a week or so the seller contacted me and told me that it was made of pure silver. He told me that he had talked to Steve Goodson who told him about it. It was made in 1938 and does not...
  9. General Discussion
    Hello everyone. I recently bought this SML tenor and I was wondering if anyone of you had some useful or interesting infos on this nice horn. It has two 5-pointed stars and a "SUPER" engraving, but no number (e.g. 47, 48 or 49). The serial number is 73xx, so I assume it's a 1949 "Super". Is...
  10. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi all- Noob here, posting because I'd really like to sell my Selmer Mark VI Alto sax but am not really sure how to proceed. I'm a multi-instrumentalist and very experienced in selling other instruments, but as you can imagine, selling a saxophone is very different - particularly one of this...

  12. Sax Body and Finish
    Hi, i have a few questions for some people that have better knowledge of this kind of thing. I have a martin tenor saxophone. 1950's. It has a dull silver finish on the outside but the keys seem to be lacquered silver. The inside of the bell however is gold. I do not know if this was possibly...
  13. Sax Body and Finish
    Hi everyone! I've been playing sax for about 6 or 7 years now and want to upgrade for my 16th birthday in November. I fell in love with the Yamaha has-62iii silver plated, and realized there are some unanswered questions you guys can probably answer. Is this the type of silver that needs lots...

  15. 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!
  16. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I have a Sioma soprano saxophone bought from ebay that doesn't have Alex Burns on it - all other posts and info on the web suggest that they do. All I know is that it plays really well - a warm 'oboe' type / brassy sound ! I bought it on a bit of a whim but it's triggered a love for older...

  18. Alto mpc
    I recently got this cool STM on ebay, inclusive a silver cap and lig. The seller stated (in polish only) that it was made of solid silver, which seems to be true, since there is no brass visible anywhere. Based on the appearance, it is an early babbit model (stm, large font 7 on the side of the...
