Due to rising costs and fraudulent purchases via the webshop, we are unfortunately forced to remove the payment via Paypal from our standard webshop payment method. Payment via the webshop is only possible via ideal and some other international bank transfers.
You can pay via Paypal after consultation (via email): the buyer pays the paypal costs. You will receive a manual invoice by e-mail.
Cash payments in the workshop in Heerlen (NL) and Attendorn (DE) is still possible, of course.

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!
