A vintage sax in mint and original condition deserves some extra attention ..... And certainly if it is a popular sax! This alto saxophone King Zephyr series III is the perfect example of this. What a beautiful and special sax! Built around May 1940 in the USA, the absolute top time of saxophone construction. A real time capsule. Photos say more than a thousand words, so take a look under 'Occasions' if this sax is still available.

A very special sax is this Conn alto saxophone, built in December 1923. It's almost identical to the ChuBerry, which was introduced a few months later. Difference: the finger nail Gis key on the ChuBerry ..... A very limited number of these saxes were delivered in the gold plated version. they are rare and sought after. Often they have a very beautiful and unique engraving: this one has the standard Conn engraving which is slightly larger and more extensive. This sax is in extremely good condition, without wear or damage! And most importantly: it plays like a dream! ......

Yamaha YTS-62 purple logo versus YTS-32 purple logo

This week MRO saxophones received a Yamaha YTS-62 purple logo for repair. That was a great opportunity to determine the differences between the YTS-62 and the YTS-32. A lot of information can be found on the various internet forums, and it is even claimed that the YTS-32 is a 'stripped-down' version of the YTS-62. Is this true? ...... Time to put both saxes on the workbench and inspect them accurately!

Cantarini 880 silver plated tenor saxophone

MROsaxofoons just finished the complete overhaul of this completely unknown handmade sax. It's an absolute beauty and it plays like a dream. There's hardly any info available on this brand, but I received some information by mail. Cantarini seems to be an early Chinese manufacturer, the horn dates to about 1965. Cantarini produces only a couple of these horns (alto and tenor), as well as trumpets and other instruments. All handmade and intended to compete with the major brands, such as Selmer. They costed about half of a Selmer sax, but with almost equal quality.
