Alto

Yamaha Saxophones - Professional Models.  Yamaha are currently the best made production instruments on the market.  The new 82ZII with the one-piece bell is far superior to the previous Z.  The just released 875EXII alto now has better tone hole placement and a warmer, darker sound quality, likely THE BEST new alto on the market!!  All their professional model saxophones have new necks which make them sound better than ever and the price is very reasonable for the quality that you are getting.  Yamaha feels better in your hands than any instrument on the market and the intonation and overall response are outstanding.  You can't go wrong with Yamaha!

Eastman 640 and 52nd Street Altos - Professional Models.  The 640 series has straight tone holes and plays very well with high quality manufacturing, good intonation and good response.  We like the VL, vintage lacquer, in this model which has a darker look, more like the vintage saxophones of the past.  The 52nd Street is an un-lacquered alto with rolled tone holes, excellent intonation and overall response and plays with a bit more edge than the 640 series and plays bigger as well.  This model is currently being played and endorsed by Gary Bias of Earth, Wind and Fire.  Both are great instruments at very good prices!

Selmer Series II, III or Reference 54 and Axos Altos - Professional Models - Sax Alley is an official Selmer Paris Dealer!  We have ready access to these great saxophones at great prices.

Armstrong Heritage alto #83,xxx - Keilwerth Made Saxophone!!

Artmstong contracted Keilwerth to make some saxophones for them and this was the result, the Armstrong Heritage Model.  Basically the same as the Keilwerth Superba II, which was Keilwerth's Intermediate Model, this one is considered an intermediate model as well.  

These are nice playing altos and is in excellent condition.  Pads are mostly original and the leather is getting somewhat stained and hard, but we will do what we can to soften the leather, seal it so it will last longer and make this horn play better than new.  I expect we will put about $250 of work into this one before it gets into your hands.

The Armstrong Heritage is a really good instrument so don't miss this alto for a very reasonable price!!

Comes with the original case, also in great condition.

Price includes the Sax Alley $120 "Complete Adjustment" so it will play well once you receive it.

Intonation is excellent.  Response is very good.  Tone is on the bright side, but that works well for beginning players who don't move a lot of air yet.

Conn 6M 'Naked Lady' Alto Saxophone #321,xxx

The Conn 6M is called the "Naked Lady" model because it has the bust of a lady in the center of the engraving on the bell.  This one is a re-lacquer and in very good mechanical condition with about 85% of the lacquer remaining.  Pads are newer and serial number is #321,xxx.  This is still an American Made Conn alto before they changed things and shipped production to Nogales so it still plays well, although it will have a britgher sound quality than the earlier 6M altos.  Charlie Parker played a 6M at one point is his career and sounded great on it!

This one includes a Pro Tec Rectangular Case in black.  It has warm sound, even though it's a re-lacquer, and plays well.  We have chemically cleaned the neck and included our Sax Alley $120 "Complete Adjustment" in with the price.  Pads are decent and should last a while, but if you would like all new pads, and we will use Conn Style Reso Pads, you can click on the "Repair Option" and for an extra $600 and we will include our "Minor Mechanical Restoration".  The great price on this one will allow you to do a lot of extra work, if you want, and still not spend a huge amount!!!

If you would like a piece of the greatest of American musical instrument manufacturing history, this is it!   This is a great for really good playing alto!!!

Conn Student Alto Saxophone #L02,xxx, 'Shooting Star' made in the US, not Mexico!

The Conn "Shooting Star" was the last student model alto saxophone made in the US by Conn.  This is a good beginner instrument with nickel-silver plated keys and a decent sound quality.  Pads are somewhat older, but leather is soft and we should be able to get this in good adjustment for you.

Comes with the original case and a neck strap.  If you need other items to begin with, click on the "Accessories" option and you can include those with the instrument when purchasing.

We will include our Sax Alley $120 "Complete Adjustment" in with the price of this horn and will replace any bad pads as well so it will play well.

Conn Vintage New Wonder "Chu Berry" Alto Saxophone #172,xxx

Very good mechanical condition, silver-plated "Chu Berry" model with rolled tone holes, nail file G# lever and tunable neck.  Conn actually listed this as the "New Wonder" model.  Silver-plate with gold wash inside the bell.  Conn altos have a beautiful sound quality and we can make them play as big as a modern alto.

We are selling this one for $1450.  We will put all new pads in this alto and do anything else necessary, including putting the horn through a silver cleaning chemical to make it look nicer to get this looking and playing great for the price quoted.  What you see in the pics is not what you get when you purchase this one after we have worked on it.  It will look and play great!!

(If you wish, you can purchase this one "as is" and your repair tech can work on it for you.  Email to ask for the "as is" price.)

GRAFTON VINTAGE PLASTIC ALTO #12,xxx, like Charlie Parker Played!!!

The Grafton Plastic alto is one of the most iconic vintage altos.  Most people know of it because of it's white plastic body and the fact that Charlie Parker played it when in England on a date in which they couldn't use his real name due to contract obligations in the US.

These are getting more rare and hard to find every day.  This is only the second one we have seen in our 23 years in business and I doubt we will see many, if any, more!

This one is serial number #12,xxx and it's in very good overall condition.  There is only a minor amount of plastic damage to key guard near the Low C key and the receiver and High F tone hole had some plastic repair work done in that vicinity which is making the High F not seal right now, but I am thinking we can get it to work.  

All original pads, corks and felts with original resonators in the pads as well.  These play well when they are up and running.

I expect this horn will be worth twice what we are asking in about 5 to 10 years.  I would leave it as is and just put it away until a rainy day or, if you like, we will do our best to get it playing well before you receive it.

Don't miss this if you are a serious horn collector!!!
