Please give my compliments to George. He did a terrific job dialing in my Selmer Mark VI tenor! I also threw in my latest CD: "Sun and Shield" as a thank you for your hospitality. It was truly awesome to play all those saxophones!

My WWII era silver plate Conn 12M arrived here today, safe and sound! The horn look wonderful, the international packing was outstanding and delivery time very quick.
Greetings from Norway”
Hey, just wanted to tell you I am thrilled with this Sakshama piece I got from you! Best tenor sound I've ever gotten period!
Just wanted to give a shout out to Mark Overton and the guys at Saxquest. I've bought 3 horns from Mark in the past year and sent one to him for an overhaul. Their tech work is outstanding and while buying a horn without being able to play it is frustrating, Mark has always taken the time to talk to me about the horn(s) in detail and tell me honestly if he thinks that this horn is right for me and the work I do. He has always steered me in the right direction and the horns have been exactly as he describes. I'm not affiliated with Saxquest in any way, I'm simply a very satisfied customer and looking forward to receiving my latest purchase from them later this week!”
I am writing to let you know just how much I am enjoying my Andreas Eastman ETS 652 RL 52nd Street tenor. For me, it has the best qualities of my P. Mauriat PMXT 66R and my 67XXX Mark VI. The instrument is very well constructed and has stayed adjusted quite well. I would deinately recommend this instrument to anyone looking for a new tenor.
In the mid 1940's, my father gave me a new Buescher alto. Throughout the remainder of my high school years my renditions of the popular ballads, parades and big band music were unequalled. Our swing band was led by a veteran of the just ending WWII. Being a kid with these older musicians made me feel as big as the sounds from my Buescher. All listeners marveled at the "voice" of my alto.
Entering engineering school I was "encouraged" to make the choice of being an engineer or a musician. I pawned my Buescher and became a hollow man.
Finding SAXQUEST online has made me a new man. I was so pleased to find a "vintage" saxophone JUST LIKE ME! You have made an old man very happy. Engineering fed my family. Your Buescher Aristocrat Big B has given me new life.
Thank you for being there. Jon helped me with the purchase and the instrument arrived in the perfect playing condition your company provided. Saxquest is special to me.

I cannot tell you how much it meant to win this months contest! My daughter is in dire need of stuff for her sax but we couldn't afford them & all the other costs associated with band :( I've been entering your contest for months!! :) I was almost in tears when I got the email that I'd won. Her first year of high school is coming up & now she'll be able to march in comfort with her new harness :) Now I can start stocking up on reeds LOL Thank you again!”
Incredible place. Will come here every chance I get.”
Thanks again for coming up to Truman this past week and for sponsoring Audrey's performance/masterclass! She sounded great and we all learned a lot. The students were excited to try out the mouthpieces, ligatures and instruments too and I'll continue to recommend SaxQuest to them - I appreciate it!
