The soprano saxophone brings back memories of Sidney Bechet, John Coltrane, and Steve Lacy. Perhaps from my stock below you can find the one you will star on! And, if you want to go even higher, try out one of my sopraninos (mingled with the sopranos below)...
This 1908 C Soprano is in very good original condition! Silver plate is 90% with wear on touch pieces. Pearls are excellent. Pads are newer with nylon resonators. Keyed to high E flat with soldered tone holes. It comes with an older B flat model case. Great for a collection!!!!

This Sweet 1925 Buescher curved soprano is in Excellent Condition! Original silver plate is near perfect and there is no physical damage. Neck is perfect, pearls are perfect, bottom bow is perfect! It has new black Roo pads with original snap in metal resonators. Original case looks like new as well.
This 1926 Buescher straight soprano has original silverplate with gold plated interior bell. It is a later model with the longer palm keys and roller on the G# key. It has some plating wear around the thumb area but the rest of the horn is very good. I've cleaned off tarnish on the bell area so you can see how nice it will look. Original pearls and rollers are in good condition. Most snap in resonators are intact. Will be repadded and hand polished before shipping to a new home.
Here is later (1927) True Tone with 99% silverplate and a light gold bell interior. I've cleaned off some tarnish to show the excellent plate condition. It has the longer palm keys and G# roller key. It also has all original pads with snap-in resonators intact. I will repad and keep the resonators in place before sale. This later soprano will be a fine player with solid intonation. Scheduled for hand polishing and VintageSax pad work.
This beautiful curved Evette and Schaeffer was made in France but distributed here in the US through the Carl Fisher Co. It is keyed to high E flat and has a detachable neck. Intonation is very good and sound is focused and warm. This soprano also has the extra low keys that were part of the Apogee System key work. The bell keys can be played with the middle finger of the right hand as well as the traditional fingering using the left pinky! Great as a collection piece or as a player!
This is a unique New Wonder silver plated Conn soprano sax keyed to high F. Check out the lovely gold plated bell! The serial number stamping leads one to believe it was produced in 1896! Upon closer inspection, the serial number is missing its first two digits! It has original pearl touch pieces and palm keys on separate rods. The neck is fixed (not detachable) and the silver plate is excellent. All these characteristics plus the engraving style date this to around 1920. It is in wonderful condition and will be polished and receive VintageSax* pad work before sale.
A very RARE Gold Plated curved Conn from the early 20s. Tone holes are drawn from the body and most are rolled. Conn didn't usually roll the smallest tone holes at this point in production. The palm keys are all on separate rods and independent and it is keyed to high F. The original burnished gold plate is in very good condition. Pads are new with flat metal resonators. Intonation is good and the tone of this soprano is robust and sweet. Case is original yet the interior has been restored beautifully. Here's your chance to own a very difficult to find soprano in gold plate!
