    Default WTB: Vintage saxophones in need of a complete overhaul or repairs

    I'm looking for saxophones to restore, alto, tenor, sop or bari - doesnt matter!

    Brands wanted: Martin, Buescher, King, Conn, Keilwerth, Holton, Yanagisawa, Selmer, SML.
    Other brands might also be interested.

    No student saxophones or stencils.... except for:
    Baritone saxophones
    and
    saxophones with elaborate engraving
    or with
    full pearl inlay

    I've got an old king Voll True Alto. Missing a lot of pads, ever so slight bent bell, and a key guard that needs to be resoldered

    Not the best vintage model out there, but I figured I'd mention it

    Even saxophones that are badly dented or relacquered might be of interest!

    I'm still looking.
    I'm interested in most brands made around 1920-1970...
    Some earlier and older as well...

    Please send me more offers!

    hi, I'm fairly sure this won't be of interest, and you have probably seen it in the SML section, but just in case......
    I've got an SML rev.d (although the Lemaire name is present, the serial number suggests rev.d) in really, really bad condition.
    The best thing is maybe to have a look at my post in the SML section here.
    It would only be good for parts, or if you had another parts SML.
    Just let me know if you're interested.
    Many thanks,
    David.

    I have two interesting tenors for you.

    JK Toneking silverplate, angel wing with rolled toneholes, high F#, G# trill

    Grassi Profesional ( which is a true super balanced action copy) lacquered .

    Both need a complete overhaul and have a numebrs of dings and small dents but nothing major and they can be acquired for a decent amount of money and shipped to Sweden.
    Life is just a bowl... some have cherries in it, some don’t. Those who have the cherries aren’t likely to share them though.
