1916 or 17 evette schaffer saxophone
Hello all, names jason and I recently aquired a sax with no privious ideal of the first thing about a sax. I was doing fairly well with my musical adventuring and decided since I always loved listening to a sax and... not knowing and players id try it out ..... im a bass / syth ..noise maker mainly, so off I went on a sax huting trip.
So I purchased a sax... got it home. ... and now realize I may have been better off getting cheaper student model.... I can't figure out how to hold the damn thing, its got more buttons and levers on it than I was expecting. And after reading about 3 pages of beginner sax stuff.... up to the parts about spit cleaning tubes and other yuk things (no spit on my bass... if u be wanting to not be carried away)... I realized I have lost my appetite for this instrument.
No seriously the sax I got from my research is probably to old and nice for my inexperienced hands and I hold in high regard all musical instruments and vintage tech. I have multiple really cool items, but also am smart enough to no that ill probably be better off with no sax or beginners because its not goin to b my main instrument just a musicians part time affair with a stranger ;)
My firat first of two questions:
Could anyone provide information on what model or any info in general. All the parts as far as I can tell have matching serial numbers, and from the info I found on google, it may be from 1916-1917 (23000 - 23499 serial numbers.
And anyone place rough or approximate value, and any potential persons who would value such a item.
Thanks in advance.
