hello everyone

trying to find a tenor saxophone, went around to see a mate who was selling some vintage horns and i found one that grabbed my attention. he lent it to me to try out and i took it to a jam session last night and it screamed, was unreal, i never played a tenor sax before but it seamed notes just rolled out, everyone commented on my playing saying not to go back to alto again.

i believe the sax to be a keilwerth, the engraving on the bell has metro on the front wich i believe to be of a music shop, and on the back has a stamp 'JK the best in the world', model number 25771.

i was playing it with a lawton 7 metal mouthpiece wich i liked alot

i dont know much about the sax, is it wourth the money he is asking $1000. is it a student or professional model, commen or sought after.

any information or advice would be much appreciated

thankyou very much

josh

Well, if it played well for you, and you liked it, what does it matter what others think? You have been told that is a fair price as long as the sax is in good shape, and you described it as "unreal". Go for it.

thankyou for the reply ian hart.

it seams that i can get caught up in trying to compare prices and different models of saxs when basically it comes down to the individual piece and 90% the ability of the player to produce good tone.

And an even better price if you get that Lawton mouthpiece with it. It's like the Keilwerth saxophone and Lawton mouthpiece were just meant to be together.
