This is a good and rare sax in fine condition. It’s renovated (new pads, corks and some new rods) june 2010 and I’ve been playing it since then. It has pads with brown plastic resonators/reflectors. Before I ship we are going to do some small adjustments. The tone is rather dark and it’s playing very well from the bottom to the top. The intonation is also fine. The overall condition is good. Just a two dings and a small piece of the low C keygaurd is gone. This sax is not much played over the years.

Some other info about the sax:
- rolled toneholes
- double low octavepipes
- acrylic keygaurds
- original case in good condition
- comes with a mouthpiece (no good)
- G – G# thrill key
- nickelplated with ”gold” inside bell

I uploaded some pictures to my Photobucket site. The 11 first pictures are the Klingsor after the renovation:http://s297.photobucket.com/albums/mm201/thomsax/?start=0

Firma Karl Hammerschmidt, Burgau Germany (some miles west München) made the Klingsor saxes. They just made c 5000 saxes through the years. You can read more about the Hammerschmidt saxes on Helen Kahlke website Bassic Sax:.

Price £ 690.00 including freihgt (DHL Europac). 5% to Pete’s charity foundation. Buyer can come for a free Rocksaxworkshop with Andrew Clark. Maybe we go to England as well. Not decided yet. Otherwise you are welcome to Sweden/Scania for some honking! I have this sax for sale on other places as well.

I’ve decided to keep the sax myself (it’s like this all the time…)!! I went to a blues jam yesterday and I got some nice comments about the sound of the Klingsor. It’s a pity to let a sax like this to get out of your hands!
