Selling due to upgrade:

Hanson SA5 alto, bought 2nd-hand (was virtually unused) a few months back.

Had it serviced in January through Music House in Harrogate, octave mech and a few non-airtight pads/keys sorted out. Has also had the strap ring moved and resoldered by Stuart at The Woodwind Exchange in Bradford (to his 'textbook' spec, not tailored to my requirements). Supplied with non-original case (does the job perfectly well), basic mouthpiece and Rico ligature. £200 plus postage.

Also got an Optimum AL4 mpc, has only been used for a few months. Using a Yamaha for the time being so surplus to requirements. £55 plus postage.

I bought these together but figure there's a fair chance someone would want one but not the other. With the cost of repairs I'm breaking even here (apart from the £15 I was charged for p&p and the 5% charity donation (don't mind that one though!))

Will try and get some photos sorted over the weekend and post a link to them. Any questions please ask.

No photos yet Steve?
Got some of the sax up: Hanson SA5

You can see some minor damage to the lacquer where the strap ring was moved - pretty minimal:

If you're interested I could bring it over - I work in Bradford so can easily travel via Ilkley.

I'm driving down to Hampshire and North London over the next few days if anyone from darn sarf is interested in the sax.
