Tuesday, March 4, 2014, 01:47 PMSeen on display in the Hass Factory Outlet booth at NAMM, we are now offering this Conn 6M for sale.
Josh fabricated a new double socket neck receiver on this horn, as well as some necessary body repair. The ProShop also replaced all springs with gold plated needle springs, added new pearls, and key contacts for G, side C and side Bb.
The finishing touch was our signature satin finish, with smooth highlights and a gold wash bell, completing the uberhaul.
Contact the ProShop today to purchase this 1930s beauty.
Friday, February 28, 2014, 08:24 AMWe just got this great email from our friend Ken of the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet
"Dear friends of the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet,
In May, the time is once again upon us: our five-day master class for saxophone will take place this year in the beautiful atmosphere provided by the "Bayerische Akademie" in Marktoberdorf, Germany, where ideal conditions for an artistically complete workshop await us:
We would like to share our musical experience with you all through individual lessons and seminars, in addition to working with you through the mediums of the large saxophone orchestra and smaller ensembles. In regards to the latter, please know that we would like to especially allot plenty of time for coaching trio ensembles and quartets that already exist. This is the ideal chance for your ensemble to profit from the RSQ's forty-five (!!!) years of chamber music experience in concert halls all over the world. With this said, individual soloists, teachers, students of all ages, and amateur players will be in the best of hands and most welcome.
We look forward to meeting new artists and seeing the faces of familiar artists alike: may we take on the music together in an inspired and intensive manner!
We would like to also take this opportunity mention to you that this summer, the first official change of the tenor saxophone chair in the history of the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet will be officially announced. After forty-five (!!!) years of outstanding contribution, our colleague, Bruce Weinberger, will go into a well-deserved retirement from playing in the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet. This is therefore your last chance to work with this experienced artist and pedagogue in the form of an RSQ masterclass.
With warmest regards,
the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet
Christine Rall, Elliot Riley, Bruce Weinberger and Kenneth Coon
P.S.: for those who have a long stretch to travel, it would be advantageous to consider flight connections to Friedrichshafen."

Wednesday, February 26, 2014, 01:12 PMThe Sax ProShop has recently acquired a Selmer MKVI Tenor!
We purchased this sax from a local gentleman, who lives only about 30 minutes away.
He had only used it for a couple of years in high school, and it's been collecting dust in a closet ever since! It was a real find!
There are very few blemishes on this tenor and original lacquer is in pristine condition.
We're sending it through the Sax ProShop for an uberhaul, like we do with all of our newly acquired vintage horns.
The modifications that we are doing to this horn include side key contacts, converting the clunky side key ball joints to forks, adding a Teflon octave rocker and a low B to C# adjustment screw.
Interested in purchasing this horn? Reserve today for a 10% discount.
