  1. Buescher
    I recently purchased a beautiful Supertone Bandmaster (what a cool name!!) vintage silver-plated alto saxophone on Reverb. I have been researching this stencil but have mostly found information about Conn and Martin made stencils under this name. I have only seen one other one that looks like...

    I have had since my high school playing days (40+ years ago) a Continental Alto, not a Colonial. I’ve always just assumed it was a Conn stencil from the 1920’s - 1930’s and left it at that. Lately I’ve been interested in seeing if there is a more precise way to date it or if there is a...

    Does anyone have any information on Warburton stencil saxophones sold prior to 2005? I just picked one up for my daughter (she's 11; currently plays a YAS-23) from a thrift store. I contacted Warburton and they said there was a fire in 2005 at their factory and any information they have was...
  4. King (HN White)
    I would like help from King aficionados about an alto I just acquired labeled Varsity USA. I searched a website of stencil manufacturers and found the Varsity listed as a Conn stencil. But this alto has earmarks of a King horn, ie. beveled key cups, soldered tone holes and pinky table. I...
  5. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Hello, I am being offered this sax, which was made for a famous music store in Mexico in the 20s or even earlier. It´s got beleved tone holes but I have not found other similarities with vintage Martin moldes, or indeed with other brands. It is beautifully engraved with the store´s name but...

  7. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I hope someone (Milandro? JayeLID?) may have come across this issue and has a solution: I have TWO altos that I assume are early Dolnets with the wishbone octave mechanism (Silver Dorn & Kirschner, Newark s/n 1337-28 and Brass WOR s/n 1115-28. There's a Silver WOR in Texas. s/n 1897-27). The...
  8. Clarinet
    Hello! I found a really interesting bass clarinet while looking around in the instrument store at work a couple of weeks ago. The brand is "Eric Petterson" and it's made of wood, no cracks. It's keyed to low Eb I think. Eric Petterson was a clarinetist who had a store here in Stockholm in the...
  9. Borgani
    I recently acquired a Selmer (London) Pennsylvania tenor which is the same model as shown on this site http://bassic-sax.info/blog/?p=36445 Same neck brace, guards, 3 hole strap ring. On that site they concluded that it was a Borgani. Here's an example of the identical Borgani version...

    So I just bought a toy sop sax on ebay. I thought it was going to be a pre-1971 York stencil, but it is a straight sop that comes with two necks and has modern keywork. Yani's website says two necks on straight sops weren't introduced (ever) until the mid-1980s? I've attached some pics, and I'm...
  11. Keilwerth/H-Couf
    Can anyone give me any info on this sax www.ebay.com/itm/231318890562 it says it may be a Keilweth stencil but I cant find any info on it online, the only info is on Bueschers, Martins and Conns that made Velvetone saxes, but no Keilwerth, plus, this looks too modern to be any of the other 3...
  12. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Over the last year I have been fortunate to acquire a few stencils that are copies of, if not the top model of the maker, at least very close. Dick Stabile - Martin Handcraft Committee Olds Opera - Buffet Super Dynaction Alexandre - JK New King If you could make a list of the stencils you...
  13. Conn
    I'm looking at a Conn tenor stencil made for a music store in Buffalo. I have a couple of questions. What model is this a stencil of? What year? The serial # is 46,xxx, but as I've read here, that can't just be plugged into the Conn serial number chart because it's a stencil. I'll try to attach...
  14. Buescher
    I just scored a great-looking 20s Wurlitzer bari for $200 and I'm going to pick it up on Saturday. I'm pretty sure given the arched s/n engraving, pearl G# & arrangement of the LH pinky cluster, and positioning of the alt F# that this is a Buescher stencil but would love to get the opinions of...
  15. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    So I just picked up this cheap old soprano. The brand is Aiglon, anyone have any idea who could have made it? There is another thread about a Aiglon alto, but it doesn't seem like there was any conclusion about who made it. Its in decent condition, but I can't really say how it plays because the...
  16. Eb Alto
    Anyone know what year this sax was made and how much they go for in excellent condition? Any history would be greatly appreciated. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=181062099591&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:US:1123 Thanks, Bill
