Bauhaus Walstein TS-Y Tenor Saxophone for sale .. Latest revision of this model with the latest case, no dings at all, very little in the way of fine scratches anywhere. This horn comes with the Original case (also near mint) and a scruffy-ish but servicable Rico Graftonite B3 mouthpiece and metal ligature . no sling (I didn`t get one with it) ..

I bought this a few weeks ago as a second horn and it`s a stunning Sax for the money which punches well above its weight even at full price , only selling as I`ve just bought Davey's silver Yamaha 62 .

Selling for £375 .......... 5% Donation to Pete's Charity . carriage will be £15 Extra within the UK using next day Interparcel (UPS)

Hello,
according to what you told me the sax is professionally packed.
Surely better than the 2 Bauhaus M2-DL I bought this year in London :)
And they arrived in perfect condition.

Cheers,
Guenne

I don`t know about "Professionally" but I packed really well in the same box which Dave sent over two and a half grands worth of Yamaha 62 about the distance from Frankfurt to where you are . covered the whole package in clear clingfilm/SaranWrap (so it`ll be waterproof) and made sure it had fragile all over it (well Dave wrote that originally, I just added to it) . the Horn had bubblewrap in the case around it and I used cork wedges under the bell keys ..

How did they send the M2s ?

Oh and I made heavy duty handles for the sides (for carrying vertically) out of card and loads of Gaffa tape so they have no excuses for dropping it

Hi,
no cork wedges, no bubble wrap.
The horns had play inside the case, which was inside a cardboard box and fixed by styrofoam.
I think that the point is that the horn must not be able to move inside the case.

Cheers,
Guenne

Ahh, the wedges can fall out (and may) but the horn is bubblewrapped tight in there so are the neck and the mouthpiece, the plug was in the neck joint as you`d expect. this is only the second horn I`ve sent, the other being the TJ alto to the dealer across the country when I upgraded it.. the case has some bubblewrap around it as well as the box (from a Vacuum cleaner) having good cushioning at the ends and then rolled up bands of bubblewrap acting as shock absorbers inbetween the box and the case . they`d seriously have to throw the thing to damage it ... it`s insured to £500 but the idea was to get a horn to your student so I did my best with the packaging .........

Hello,

yes, passing my town about 2 times to be transported to different logistic centers :)
I love these modern times.

Hi Ads,

I received the horn at noon today.
I could not decide whether to unpack it or not, as packing was so well done.
Could have survived the next thermonuclear war :)

I just checked it. Some pads are sticky, the sax may need some oil. But everthings fine, thank you very much.
I recorded a tune to find out how it sounds. Good enough for a sax at this price :)

Thanks for being such a good seller!

Cheers,
Guenne

Thanks for being such a good buyer too Guenne !!. Glad the packaging made the grade ..

I`ve now got some Lighter fluid to clean sticky pads properly, there were a couple on the "Silver Lady" (my new 62 Tenor) which were a bit sticky and on the Elky Straight Sop , a tip I got from Stephen Howards book - I`ll get some oil too as both will probably need that also..

I also thought the BW sounded very good for the money, It`s not as "transparent" or dynamic as the 62 or a Yani 992 as you`d exoect but it does punch well above its weight, I`m sure your student will be well pleased . excellent recording by the way !, It`s a long time since I`ve done "Studio" stuff (Bathroom as a booth with a Rode NT2 at the time)

I will buy an EV RE20 again, should I finally sell my Yani silver neck for Tenor..
The Zoom H6 I am recording with is ok, but it definitely does not have the resolution of a large diaphragm.

Cheers,
Guenne

We used to run the mics, Guitars, Synths etc into a Mackie 1604VLZ with outboard (Finalizer, Lexicon & Q2 FX etc) and record to hard disk on the computer via a 24 bit audio card with software called Orchestrator Professional which also took care of the midi side of things as there were no softsynths back then . it`s all long gone now bar the Quadraverb-2 FX unit and an instrument mic (so can still record sax I guess ) but worked well at the time . the RE20 is in a different class to the Rode of course . I`ve got an MP3 recorder, the humble but capable tascam DR05 .
