    I Just purchased a Yangisawa SC991 Soprano Sax from Matthew at Saxforte. Great Experience. Matthew runs a superb operation, selling only the highest quality instruments. I actually made an appointment with him to try two different instruments. When I arrived he had both instrument set up and ready to play. He took a lot of quality time with me and I left a happy customer. And by the way the price was the best I could find. Thanks Matthew.

    Just got a great playing Bergonzi Slant from Rittmeister. Kent was friendly, prompt, and fun to converse with. A pleasure to deal with him.

    I wanted to put in a good word for Jeff Foster. Earlier today he and I had a fun session of conversation and playing, and made a mutually beneficial mouthpiece trade. He took the time to make the trip to my house (even though the trade was my idea) to help make my schedule work. He was friendly and all-around a good guy to deal with.

    AND, he let me play his TH&C tenor - what a guy!

    I would like to give a shout out to New Player. He sold my friend a very nice Yanagisawa T-6 and he is very pleased. I got to try it out myself, I had no idea how nice a Yani T-6 is! (Ok, yes i did) He is easy to work with and will communicate in a timely manner. Thanks Minh!

    Two thumbs up to Kritavi. In the past we had done some small mouthpiece deals. Recently, we consummated a deal on a beautiful looking and playing Conn Chu/6M Transitional. The horn is a lights out player and is a total looker. Jim was patient, quick to answer PM's here on SOTW and very generous with his time. He met me at his tech's place for a personal transfer of this beauty on New Year's Day! It was my first time meeting Jim in person, and he is just as much a gentleman in person as he is on line.

    He's got some horns to drool over. That 217,xxx gold plated Chu tenor was one of the most lush, sexy, phat tenors I have ever played!

    I recommend Kritavi without reservation.

    Yeah, runzoff deserves mention here. She's super nice, and she knows a good Lamberson when she finds one. Very cool person to deal with.

    Adding Jason DuMars - I bought a tenor from him. It was clearly and accurately described, he was easy to communicate with and shipped promptly, and when he made a (minor) shipping error, he refunded the shipping cost without me asking. Overall a very good experience. I would buy from him again in a heartbeat.

    Sakshama Koloski - great guy to deal with and his pieces are fantastic.
    Uwe Steinmetz - I bought a soprano from him recently. Super nice guy, responds quickly, horn arrived as described and very well packaged.
    Atonal - Also a great guy to deal with. Got an awesome Soloist from him in a trade.
    Stan - might be the best kept secret on SOTW. He is the guy that makes the HSM pieces. Incredibly nice guy (I've met him) and superb product.
    All highly recommended.

    I just completed a very smooth mouthpiece trade (where I had to kick in some cash) with a new young SOTW member, McFlurry129.

    His father actually handled the sale with prompt communication and parcel tracking info.

    Trading or buying from a new SOTW member without a long history or reputation can be chancy, but it worked out well in this case!

    Pbob42 - Just bought a great sax from bob, long distance! Everything went very smoothly. Quick shipment and packed really well. Horn arrived undamaged and as described. I would buy from him again.

    This is long overdue, but quite a few months ago I sold my Ref54 Tenor to dzve in Australia. He was extremely quick and professional to deal with, sent payment immediately, and was overall a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend anyone to trust him with a smooth and professional international or local transaction.

    I've only done two deals with sellers here on SOTW, one buyer and one seller. The seller was nottheedge, and it was a great transaction. Great communication, very informative, and received the horn very quickly, packaged very well, and in excellent playing condition!!!!

    I recently purchased a Barone Hollywood from Rittmeister. This guy is a great communicator, he packed the mouthpiece really well, gave me a very fair price and the mouthpiece arrived promptly! This was a smooth transaction from start to finish. I would not hesitate to deal with him again.

    Great many thanks to Sakshama, Uwe Steinmetz and Thomas - great sellers in the positive sense that their description are spot on and honest guys. Further thanks to Sakshama for making what is obviously great mouthpieces. The latter may not be 100 cosmetically perfect as some others, but they play to boot and personally, I quite like the small imperfections that come from the pieces being handmade.

    Very special thanks to Palo Tung (ptung on SOTW) of Just Saxes for going the extra mile(s). I purchased one of his own brand of inexpensive altos and it is scaringly close to my Yani for a minor fraction of the price, probably significantly influenced by Palo's meticulous setup. I really like Yanagisawa and very much hope they will survive the competition from their asian neighbors, but the horn Palo sent me, makes me wonder. My JS alto played great right out of the box like a Yani; solid construction and flush solders like a yani; and zippo leaks like a new Yani. Thanks Palo!
