Found a “nice” counterfeit Selmer tenor supposedly a mark vi copy from China. Selmer logo proudly displayed in one of the photos. Wrong color, wrong keywork, it’s just wrong. Don’t know if white gloves are included.
The sad part is that the seller has a business selling used saxophones. I know people who have bought horns from him, but now it appears that he is dabbling in counterfeit saxophones.

That’s indeed sad. I’ve dealt with him. Nice guy. He should know better. He calls it ‘copy’ but it’s indeed a clear counterfeit. Asking for trouble.

It's a sad commentary that there's a market for such items. But mockery and ignorance is a sign of the times.

Why the delicate dance of avoiding naming the seller? It would help to know who is dealing in counterfeit horns.

Truth, transparency, etc. This should not be taboo.

I don’t know the sellers name. He often places adverts on CL for name brand saxophones, most of them good quality horns. He is located in Santa Cruz, or at least, that’s where the Craigslist postings are from. That’s all I know. Not trying to tippy toe around naming names.

Thank you.
