Keilwerth EX90 series II tenor saxophone

This is one of the German built tenors from Keilwerth so is a quality instrument.
The finish is a black nickel and looks like a gun metal finish.  (It's not lacquered.) There is some dots on the finish (pitting?) as can be seen on the bell (see below).

These horns are known for having a dark sound and Grover Washington used a similar Keilwerth.
This comes with its original Keilwerth case but has no accessories included as the owner has a

new instrument. 

  This is in good condition and ready to play


PRICE:  £950  ono

Jupiter 789 - 787 tenor saxophone

A good quality beginner to intermediate tenor saxophone made in Taiwan.

Comes with a sling and a David Hite mouthpiece with replacement ligature. 

The case is in reasonable condition but has lost its badge and suffered a tear underneath.

There are a few blemishes with some lacquer wear and a couple of small dings but it's in pretty good condition and plays well . 

It has the upper F# key and has been serviced so it's ready to play. These tenors are well built and not far from professional quality instruments.
Great sounding tenor. 




PRICE:  £575   SOLD

Elkhart Series II tenor saxophone

This is a tenor built in Taiwan which means it's a well built instrument. These days Elkharts tend to be built in China and aren't quite as good IMHO. 


Come with a sling and we'll include a suitable mouthpiece. The case is in good condition and is a sturdy plush-lined construction.

There are few blemishes on this instrument. Its in very good condition.

This is a tenor without the upper F# key which has some advantages in that it ensures the sax seals well at the top. (Upper F#s can be a bit leaky.) It still plays well in the altisimmo and I can easily get F# and above.

It feels fairly light in the hands which is nice - tenors that are too heavy can give you back problems. 

Quite a sweet sound. This is a good instrument. 



PRICE:  £550   SOLD

Orsi  alto

This is an interesting alto from Romeo Orsi of Milan Italy. It appears to be closely modelled on the Conn 6M and has similar features like a copy of the microtuner , the 'nail file' G# and a G# trill key.And it has rolled toneholes.
Orsi aren't as well known as the big manufacturers but have been going a long time and are still producing instrument. http://orsiwind.wixsite.com/wind-instruments/blank-2



I'm not certain of the age of the instrument but it looks like mid 20th century. The lacquer has some pitting, typical of this age of instrument. There's no dents that I can see.
The instrument has been put in playing order so can be played as is, but most of the pads look rather old and it would benefit from a repad.
It comes with a sturdy case with a sling. (No mouthpiece included. )  
PRICE:   £550 ono

It has a couple of repaired dents,  and has had an early relacquer.

Recently overhauled with new pads and springs fitted.
