    Default B&S blue label tenorsax pricing...

    Hi,
    I´m about to sell my backup tenor,a blue label B&S, and I need some help pricing it....any ideas??
    It has just been totally overhauled so it´s in perfect condition.
    I tryed to find prices from internet but I found almost nothing for some reason.
    This is a big bore horn and it´s very good but I just don´t need it anymore.
    That´s why I´m selling it.
    I´m thankfuol for all the help pricing this horn,thanks.

    There's a way to check Ebay to find what similar ones have gone for? Bear at Cybersax loved these horns; my impression, however, is that the market doesn't quite match his high enthusiasm for them.

    I'd say his price would give you the absolute max value for one.

    WWsax has a couple of altos...?

    Less than the going rate for 2001s etc is my impression in the used market. There are a few optimists out there though trying to prove me wrong.

    I may growl occasionally, but I never bite

    Quite a bit less than that I should think! Although the blue labels have a good fame they are nowhere as sophisticated as the 2001 , Medusa, etc. etc. Here they are 1000€ tops for a tenor and less for an Alto. I have a Blue label baritone for sale for 1000€ and I have had it for quite some time.

    I agree with Milandro. They would be less valuable than a 2001, Medusa, CJS, etc. Those are some of the brands made by B&S. Your blue label was earlier design.

    In the states a B&S Blue Label tenor should go between $750-$1200.
