Pristine, fully overhauled and restored to like-new condition, Buffet-Crampon Super Dynaction Tenor Saxophone. Circa-1960, mint condition, beautiful and powerful tenor, comprable to the Selmer Mark VI tenors of the era. This horn was fully restored by saxophone master-repairman, George Borodi and passed on to me.  ​Regulated to perfect performance condition.

As a professional recording artist and bandleader, this horn is a one-of-a-kind specimen of excellence from the hey-day of French saxophone manufacturing. The horn comes in a new Nouveau Ameritage case, which is amazing in and of itself. Horn is in perfect playing condition with all new pads, springs, corks and felts.

This horn is in showroom /collector's condition. The only reason I'm letting this horn go is I'm endorsed by multiple companies and use the revenues from my instrument sales to support my professional music career.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

This Buffet Super Dynaction Alto with 100% original sparkle lacquer is a true collector's item. Circa-1958, this horn has been stored in a dry, cool environment for 60yrs and is in almost like-new condition. Super rare find! All original everything, in new condition. This horn was acquired from the original owner who got it as a kid, then moved to trumpet as their primary instrument. 

As a professional recording artist, repairman and retailer, I've NEVER seen a vintage horn of this caliber or condition. Preserved in an ideal storage condition and untouched, this alto plays amazingly, every bit as good as any of the Selmer Mark VI's from the same era. This is a museum piece quality orginal for either a collector or professional. The case is original and in like-new condition as well, and the horn comes with an original Buffet-Crampon C* mouthpiece with ligature and cap.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Like-new, perfect Selmer Series III (model 53) Soprano Saxophone, Serial #636636. This is a truly amazing and perfect specimen of maybe the best and most technologically advanced soprano saxophone in the world. This horn was manufactured in 2002, and is identical to the current Series III Jubilee series, except for the engraving. When speaking with my artist rep at Selmer Paris, I asked about the difference between this Series III and the current model, and they shared that the only difference is that Selmer Paris changed their engraving artist and engraving on the horns.

The horn absolutely plays as good as any soprano I've ever played on in my life. The resonance and intonation are vibrant and perfect from bottom up into the altissimo range. The high G key on the horn is especially nice too. The horn sings with a full-bodied and rich tone, and plays as perfectly in-tune as possible.

I am offering this horn with an optional BAM Signature Soprano Case. The cost of the additional upgraded case is $225, which is included in the offering price. You will receive both cases with this horn, if you want the BAM Signature case. If you don't want the BAM case, please make an offer for $225 less than the listing price and indicate that you do not want the BAM case.

This is the very first Forestone Soprano Saxophone available in the US market. This is Forestone's SX Champagne Finish series of horns, and is an exemplary player with all the elements of a modern, truly professional horn.

The SX soprano comes with both a stright and curved neck, which produce significantly different sounds. The straight neck gives a more edgy, brighter and more powerful tone, where the curved neck offers a warmer, rich, darker tone.

The horns response and intonation are unparalleled from the altissimo range to the bottom of the horn. As a professional player, endorsed by and endorsing Forestone, I absolutely love this horn. The free blowing, easy and speed of response and just about everything else is just wonderful. Forestone extended me this horn as one of their artists to try and get feedback on, as the first American jazz artist to put their hands on this new line of sopranos being offered by the company. I'm thoroughly impressed!

Please contact me with any questions. Demo of saxophone will be available on YouTube within the week. Please search Mark Fox Jazz on YouTube to see it.

Pristine, exquisite Selmer Mark VI Soprano saxophone, late model, with high F#. Serial # 293927. This horn has been owned by one owner in it's lifetime, a professional artist who's taken the best of care of this instrument. 99+% perfect condition with almost no lacquer deterioration or blemishes whatsoever -minor lacquer aborations on the high F# key and just under the neck cork, otherwise in like-new condition.

This Mark VI is a powerful and amazing player... bold, powerful and sweet from top to bottom, and surprisingly in tune. As the Mark VI horns were all handmade, some were ok, others the modicum of perfection, which this one is. As a signed recording artist and professional player myself, I can vouch for the incredible nature of this particular horn. It's amazing and a joy to play, with that distinct Mark VI sound that revolutionized sopranos (and all the other saxophones) into the modern era of musical instruments.

The horn has recently been serviced by a world-class repairman and brought into perfect playing perfection. Pads, springs, corks and felts are all in great condition. Case is the original case and in almost new condition -there are a few corner blemishes on the leather -see pictures.
