Hi all,
I am pleased to announce that I will be selling the T.K. Melody saxophones in the U.S.

I should have my web site up and running next week, with many of the T.K. Melody saxes in stock and ready to ship! Until then you can take a look at their web site; www.sbv.com.tw ; The models I'll have are the Ipanema, Harlem Nocturne and Yardbird. More are on order and should arrive by the end of November.

I will also carry the SBV mouthpieces from the same factory.

If you can't wait, send me a PM/email with the model you're interested in and I'll let you know if it's in stock and at what price.

I'll post a note here when the web site is live. The email is already active: [email protected]

A quick update on the T.K. Melody. I now have Ipanema and Harlem Nocturne altos and tenors in stock. Unfortunately it's taken longer than expected to get the web site up and running (my web designer is a busy person!), and after tomorrow, due to travel I won't be able to ship anything until after Thanksgiving. :(
The good news; I'll have even more in stock by then! The sopranos are on backorder and will be available early/mid-December, but I'll have altos and tenors in Ipanema, Harlem Nocturne and Yardbird. I will upload the complete price list and post a link here. These prices will be good until the end of the year.

Thanks,
Terje.

I've uploaded the price list to my web site:
http://viking-instruments.com/TK-Melody/Tk mel price list 11-1-2007.pdf
Notice there are two columns in the price list; simple engraving and full engraving. Not everybody likes the blue key touches and full engraving, so I will have two options for each model: Full engraving from bell rim to neck and blue mother-of-pearl key touches, or simple engraving on bell and bow only with white or gray mother-of-pearl key touches. The simple engraving is a few dollars cheaper.
In addition to the models mentioned above, I also got one Yardbird tenor with full engraving.

Shipping will be actual charges from zip 77070; estimated at $15-25 to the lower 48 states. Feel free to contact me for shipping quotes as I will ship anywhere!

In case you wonder! I got an email from my web designer last week; her daughter needs to have surgery to implant tubes in her ear drums due to severe ear infections, so my web site won't be up and running for another couple of weeks.
I'll start posting some of my instruments in the For Sale section here, and also in eBay.

Wow! That was a long time ago...

The list prices for the SBV gold plated mouthpieces are $120 for soprano, $160 for alto and $230 for tenor. Although I have a sample of each in stock, I'm not happy with the sound and quality of these mouthpieces so I've decided not to promote them. jmoen3 just tested them to confirm my impression and you can read his review here.

Let me know if you have further questions!

Terje.

I am compelled to add that the mouthpiece quality is NOT indicative of the saxophones themselves. B:cool:

Hi Terje
Does You sell T.K. Melody in Norway? (Evt. ville det være mulig å importere en av dine saxer til Norge?)

Hi Egil,
I can ship saxes anywhere, even to Norway! And especially to a fellow Trønder...

Send meg en email/PM så kan vi diskutere nærmere. Jeg har flere kunder i Norge allerede.

Terje.
