Bonjour Silk, ceci est un forum anglais où il faut écrire en anglais. Désolé.

What sort of photos are you looking for?

Bonsoir, je ne cherche pas de photos mais j'ai vu dans les ressources et remarqué que quelqu'un avait fait une page entière sur le saxophone Grassi. Apparemment, il existe un moyen de les identifier. Je suis sur le point d'acheter un alto Grassi mais je n'ai que des photos .... Est-ce que la personne qui a publié cette page avec des numéros d'identification peut m'aider si je lui montre les photos? Cordialement

Good evening, I'm not looking for photos but I saw in resources and notice that someone had done a whole page on Grassi saxophone. Apparently there is a way to identify them. I am about to buy a viola Grassi but I only have photos .... Can the person who published this page with identification numbers can help me if I show him the photos? cordially

You can post the photos here. There may be more than person in the forum who can help you identify the saxophone.

I’m not a Grassi expert, but from the serial number I think it was made before 1974.
In the second picture it looks to me as if a post has been bent quite a lot, so I would want to check it before buying.
Do you have more pictures?

@Silk0412 - what price is the seller asking for the grassi saxophone?
Bonjour, merci pour votre message. Oui, j'ai d'autres photos ici. En essayant d'en savoir plus sur le Grassi, je suis arrivé sur votre site où quelqu'un en parle dans "Ressources & Revieuws". Il remonte à 2013 ... Cette personne donne également des numéros d'identification. Je voudrais savoir si c'est un modèle standard, un "Wonderful" ou "Jade Rollers" mais je ne le pense pas. Le vendeur demande 200 euros. Je vous remercie beaucoup pour votre aide.

Je ne sais si mon message est traduit en Anglais
Hello, thank you for your message. Yes, I have other pictures here. In trying to learn more about the Grassi, I arrived on your site where someone talks about it in "Resources & Revieuws". It dates back to 2013 ... This person also gives identification numbers. I would like to know if it is a standard model, a "Wonderful" or "Jade Rollers" but I do not think so. The seller asks 200 euro. Thank you so much for your help.

The mouthpiece is worth about a quarter of that, assuming it's in good condition. The sax.... A lot depends on condition. You could easily spend 50-100 euros getting it playable. If it needs a repad, check the cost locally. If it's playable, it's probably a fair price, but not all would agree with me.

It’s an Export “Jade rollers”, at that price you should expect to have to repad it. It probably has the original green pads!
As others have said, the cost of the repad may be far greater than the €200 you are paying for it. If charges in France are similar to Italy, you should expect to spend upwards of €500 for a professional repad.
Is it worth it? As an investment no, if you’re in love with it and plan on keeping it then yes. Cannot really say more than that!
Cheers M.

@nigeld
Why ? Some people think that this instrument is not worth buying?
I am saying that in the second picture it looks as if the post is at an angle.
This may mean that the saxophone has had a knock, and needs repairing.
I would want to be sure how much repair is needed.

I've just read this thread again and looked at the pics in more detail. I agree with @nigeld . It would help a lot if you posted more pics, but I wouldn't buy this at the asking price unless I had a quote from a good technician.
