Hi All, got a back up tenor I purchased just this week (so not long ago!) I was risking it by buying and something better has come along. I can't ask the guy for a return, it's not fair as I purchased it knowingly following a good read of the description and I have simply changed my mind

It's basically a Weltklang tenor branded 'Mayfair' and made in Germany. It looks lovely and it is well built, just like my silver Weltklang (my reason for buying one of the same kind!) However, in my desperation for a back up sax I took a risk I guess. I got it for a great price. It needs a few items sorting, I can tell just on my initial assessment of it. The Bottom end Bb I can see is not quite sitting on the tone hole. The pads are a little dry and some are worn but they could be revived. It plays as it is and the lower end B & Bb are there with some effort but it needs some improvements. I favour these saxes for their build quality and warmth of tone. The G# key has a nice mother of pearl key touch too. It is an older sax but has a lovely vintage look about it and is not too grubby at all just bits of lacquer loss and a slight bare brass appearance to it - would look great all stripped down and rebuilt I should think.
I Would like £140 all in, this will include the postage to you. If I could get this back for the sax then I'm happy but I can't lose money on it. I will make a 5% donation thru here. PM for photos

Looks like a bit of a beast, I bet it'll make a great rock n roll honker with a wide open Berg Larsen on it.

It's a beauty and I'd love it but money is really ...well ...non existent at the moment.

hello, I'm so sorry! I'm here :) PC issues at home and have not had a moment to look in when I've been at my desk (I've been lost in the abyss of AutoCAD again). Please accept my apologies and slow response. Emailing them now Thanks :)

Hm, German battle tank saxophone? Heavily armour-plated and just a very subtle vibrato, I suppose?

Sold ages ago. Not sure why I'm getting quite irrelevant comments on some of my posts? Anything I advertise does what it says on the tin so to speak. Apologies if I haven't updated posts to say they've been sold. Thanks for interest (good or bad LOL)
