Alto saxophone – $1,200.00

King Zephyr alto saxophone. Plays well bottom to top, double-socket neck, good pads with metal resonators, nice intonation. This model is sometimes called the “poor man’s Special 20” as it shares many design features with King’s top line model. Please email for photos.

Metal Clarinet – $300

No-name metal clarinet with new pads. I was told it could be made by Pedlar. I had new pads installed last year. No mouthpeice or case included. Please email for photos.

Max Frirsz 1970 Cello – $68,000

I’m selling my previous cello that was made by Max Frirsz in NYC in 1970. There is a sound post crack in the back that was repaired by the maker. It has a wide Montagnana shape. It plays very easily and has great power, particularly in its C string. It successfully projected when soloing with orchestras and been owned by multiple professional cellists, including Harvey Shapiro and members of the St. Louis Symphony and Oregon Symphony cello sections. This cello is too good to go unplayed. Please email me if interested.
Price: $68,000.00 (negotiable)
