Description
Yes the listing is correct!! You are bidding on a bass saxophone with a range of low A to High F#. This instrument is one of only two made and is in excellent original condition. Here's the story!! This sax came out of the Keilworth factory a few years ago. The factory had two graduating apprentices, and for their final project were given the task of making a Low A bass each. The sax has no markings at all and no sn# as it is a handmade prototype,(You can tell its handmade as can see where they have moved a few posts etc (trial/error) for the keywork.) A major dealer in Europe bought them both from the factory, sold one to Switzerland and here's the other!!!! This thing really honks (the low A is unreal) The bell is huge, and the keywork is amazing ,an engineering marvel!!! Low A works like a low A baritone with key under L/H thumb rest, high F# like a normal horn. I think the tube and bell are made of stainless steel, the neck is plated brass. There are a couple of very minor dings in the neck, one in bottom bow and the bell lip has an ever so slight crease. The pads are like new, (only played a couple of times) intonation is great, and has modern keywork. Don't miss your chance to be one of only two people able to play Low A without owning a contra bass. Comes with orignal case and Zinner (made in Germany)mouthpiece. Reserve price includes shipping/insurance (wooden crated) to the USA. Payment by wired funds please. The last jpg shows it next to a standard Conn bass, you can see how big the bell is by comparison.(conn bass is not for sale)
