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!

Buffet 18-20 Alto Saxophone #2545

Very good condition, original lacquer, Buffet S-A 18-20 Alto Saxophone #2545.  This was Buffet's Top-of-the-line pro model before the Super Dynaction and even before the previous model Dynaction.  We have never seen one of these altos in this shop, only tenors, and the tenors played really well so I am assuming the same for this alto.  This horn would have been from the same time frame as the Selmer Balanced Action altos and should have the same typoe  of super focused sound that really carries to the back of the room.

The $700 price tag is for "as is" condition since this alto has original pads and they are not usable any longer.  It looks like almost all of the original screw in resonators are in the pads as well.

Click on the "Repair Option" if you want us to include our $700 "Minor Mechanical Restoration" or our $1000 "Complete Mechanical Restoration" in with your purchase.  That can give you a great playing alto for only $1400 or $1700!!

Chateau VAS-500D Student Alto Saxophone #1376032 - Used in like new condition! (SOLD)

Chateau's student model alto with straight tone holes in a beautiful dark lacquer.  This model has very good overall response and intonation with professional features like a High F# Key, Tilting Low Bb and Blued Steel Needle Springs. 

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.

The makers of the Chateau brand are making saxophones for a lot of the major names in Taiwan and they decided to put out their own brand.  This student model plays very well and is a VERY low cost for a BRAND NEW student alto.

This one is in like new condition.  The owner decided to get a vintage alto instead so we got this one back.

We will include the Sax Alley $120 "Complete Adjustment" with this alto so it will play the best it can before you put it in your hands.  (Shipping cost is extra.)

Comes with the original case.
