Crescent alto and tenor saxophones are in! The new shipment just arrived, and newly set-up horns should be ready to go in the first week of January. To JS clients who already have a saxophone already on order, your horn will be up first, and will ship first. Happy new year!

Sincere thanks to all new owners of new Crescent alto and tenor saxophones! While tenors have sold out, 1 alto remains, and a new shipment of tenors and altos is expected to arrive before the New Year. Meanwhile, a new offering, *Just Saxes Curved Sopranos*, will be available soon as well. Prototypes are in the next sea shipment.
Also, vintage saxophones in the works, and forthcoming:
- Modernized King Zephyr alto: when I choose horns for very custom work, it's always based on their promise as players. This one, a true double socket example last owned by a professional player, came to me in trade and is a superb player -- exceptional intonation, exceptional response (quick attack, very freeblowing, with the right resistance as well when pushed). If you prefer the Zephyr alto's balance of scale and voice to the Super 20, but have never stayed with a Zephyr because the archaic left hand table doesn't work for you, this is going to be the kind of horn you get married to and stay with the rest of your life.
- Buescher New Aristocrat alto with "01" neck. The serial number on this example is very close to Rascher's. Full restoration. I actually have a second Buescher "01" neck that I'll be testing for compatibility, and it will be an "ala carte" offering with sale if it matches well. The second neck was last owned by the venerable Kidd Jordan, and should be a good one.
- Conn 6M classic pre-war Ladyface alto. Very nicely preserved, rolled tone holes. Scheduled for full restoration.
Just Saxes Crescent tenor prototypes are now finalized and both Crescent tenors and Crescent altos are available in modest numbers. Sopranos with full Just Saxes set-ups continue to be available as set-ups are completed -- more details are in the Just Saxes Crescent pages....
