If you wish to schedule a rebuild, or purchase one of the saxes (and it still needs to be rebuilt),  send me a 50% deposit to hold your place in the work schedule.  I work from a published schedule (see left margin) so that your sax will only be out of your possession a couple weeks, while i do the actual work, it does not have to just sit on the shop floor, until its turn comes up... you send it to arrive on schedule and we return it on schedule.

  E-mail chadd with  questions about our vintage saxes at:   worldwidesax@gmail.com

  If  a horns says "just rebuilt", then it's ready to go, saxes that say "scheduled for a rebuild" are waiting for the work to be done, but it will be included in the posted price.  If a sax says "ON TRIAL" someone is taking advantage of the "Three Day Trial" policy (See Info and Orders page).

C-Melody

(Photos of each sax are BEFORE photos 95% of the time since they have to wait for your ordered Rebuild)

I get a few request per year for C-Melody saxes, tenor style, alto style and soprano style.  I am going to make an effort to find one of each, nice ones... and offer them here.  I don't recommend c-melodies for beginners, they are best enjoyed by experienced players, wishing to use them for Dixieland, or early vintage music.  These will not be smelly old junkers, but rather carefully selected, rare horns, that I will only offer totally rebuilt.  Prices are "including rebuild".  Enjoy!

1923 Conn Wonder C-Soprano: I love the Wonder I series for their meaty tone and better intonation than people give them credit for. ALTHOUGH, this is not always the case with C sopranos. Conn is better than Buescher or King but this beast will require you to learn how to tame her. I tested many mouthpieces here and found my Morgan mouthpiece to be the best fit.

   We're all finding fun uses to cover Oboe parts too! Serial #117K, a really nice looking relacquer sax...no polishing! ;)  This one is in great condition overall with no major damage. Comes in original wood case in great condition. I have priced this accordingly and would definitely be worth restoring for your enjoyment! i will do a complete rebuild with our "Vintage Standard" set up, Prestini NS tan lambskin pads and flat metal reso's.

C.G. Conn, Silver Plate C Melody "Tenor":  Made about 1918-19, Serial # 4486x.  Silver plate finish is original and is over 80% intact, with much tarnish.  I plan to hand polish it and restore any missing silver.  The body is in excellent condition, with one small dent on the back of the body tube near the neck-strap hook, and one small dent on the bow, which i will remove, and no signs of repair.   The neck is in very good condition, no dents, no signs of repair.  The Original white kid  pads are still in it.  The unaltered C mouthpiece and ligature are included, i'm not sure what brand it is, or if it's original.  The replacement case is in very good condition.  I shined the neck and bell, you can see just how long it has sat without a cleaning, but it's in great shape, all keys move just fine.   I plan a Standard Vintage Style rebuild and it will sell for:

1920 Gold Plate, C G Conn C Melody "Alto" in GOLD PLATEAnother of the most requested of all c melodies, the Conn straight neck, or alto style sax.  Serial #  61,2xx, low pitch, A=440hz.  This is a very nice, hard to find Satin and burnished Gold Plate C-Mel "Alto".  Original Gold plating is very good, upwards of 70% . The palm key spatulas have worn through the plating as you can see in some pictures, There are small spots, like by the RH thumbhook that are thin too, but don't look bad at all (See pics, there are darker areas and lighter areas, typical of an original plated horn of this era).   It has just had a complete French style rebuild, no original case, it comes with a sax bag case.

1923 Conn VIRTUOSO DELUXE C-Melody 8M: A super rare Conn VD model 8M, beautiful Gold Plate at 99%. The altos are the most common (but still rare!), but C-Melodies and Tenors are the next rarest. ser# 122,xxx dates it to 1923. These are the High-end deluxe models with beautiful craftsmanship in the construction beyond the engraving, also add in the pearl touches on the side keys, octave, palms, and both pinky tables! This sax is scheduled for a WWS Vintage Standard Rebuild with White Roos and natural cork throughout to humor the future owner/Collector who will appreciate the look of this sax as it was originally sent out with (white pads). It will get a Vintage Conn Rebuild with resonators like the later eras with flat metal & rivet. It currently doesn't have a case but I will definitely be on the hunt for one. It's easy to just spring for a nice Tenor case but perhaps a nice C-Melody one will show up. :) After a full rebuild with it cleaned up and sparkling (no buffing!), it will go for: A super rare Conn VD model 8M, beautiful Gold Plate at 99%.
