C-Melody Saxophones-      now moving to...   Instruments - for sale 

The C-Melody saxophones listed below should be considered as'projects' - but in the course of time I'll obviously try to get them all up to at least 'just playable' standard  - so that some idea of the sound potential can be heard.  All are 'LP' / A=440, which means they will play in tune with modern instruments.  I'm open to sensible offers, and will ship to most parts of the world - I'm based in England / UK.  For any general questions about C-Melody Saxophones, go to my  Question and Answer  page, or the  Model info  page.


Please email me  if you'd like to be contacted when I've any playable C-Melody saxophones available.   Click on any underlined links, or the picture(s) below for more details - a period case is usually included.  Mouthpieces and reeds are also listed in the appropriate sections.  All prices are in - UK Pounds ( Pounds Sterling / GBP ) .   Various payment options available including Paypal and Bank-to-Bank transfer.  Shipping to Europe (and further) at sensible prices.
