  1. Selmer (Paris)
    hope this is in the right place... I know its a stencil, but my curiosity lies in made by who, when, and of what quality? I did a search but most if not all the image links I could find were broken so i couldn't really compare. :( Sax is seemingly solid silver, as some of the surface pits are...

  3. Holton
    I have an Eb Alto Sax - Silver - that belonged to my grandfather - pre-1930's. It is a Frank Holton Co. label on the front and the serial number is 108XX with an "LP" underneath. According to the Holton serial number listings I found online, it dates the horn at 1922. Any thoughts? Could it...
  4. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    So I've been having a problem with my horn that's quite common. It has been happening for just about as long as I can remember, but obviously has gotten worse as the weather has gotten warmer and the humidity has risen (I'm in Jersey). My keys, no matter what I do to prevent it, always stick...
  5. Sax Body and Finish
    Hello all, I have a silver plated (presumably) Steve Goodson tenor saxophone. I originally bought the horn cheap on eBay as a kind of toss around horn for marching band/pep band and situations where I don't want my Custom Z to get in harms way.

  7. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    This is to all the techs, (or everyone in general) out there: I just got my Truetone a few days ago, and there's some tarnish in some hard to get to areas. I was just wondering if it would be safe to immerse the sax in water (without removing the pads) Because I want to know if these 2 will...

  9. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Hi all, i've been a lurker to these forums for a while now and decided to join up. I bought a "new super dearman" tenor sax today for £150, it needs a few pads replaced near the bottom but after it's done up it should be good. So far the only info i've got on it's manufacture after scouring...
  10. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I'm getting back into playing the sax after a long hiatus, and I'm looking at a few new "Misc. Manufacturers" altos. My lacquered Selmer SA80-II tenor has been seen over a decade of love and is still very pretty and playable, despite the hours and hours of woodshedding I subjected it to. There...
  11. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I recently got a YAS-62s, which I've been using lately and it sounds great. I've been polishing it, but I'm still starting to see a little tarnish around the bell and on the underside(where it touches the bottom of the case. Any tips for removing it without harming the silver?
