Another D&J tenor popped up on eBay in the last day or so. This particular one is carrying the stencil name H. Genet.
This particular horn—like all the H. Genet saxophones that I have so far seen—is one of the later horns that D&J produced. The seller is an antiques dealer, and therefore admits to knowing nothing about saxophones in general, and this one in particular:
H. Genet Tenor Saxophone
This Auction is for a H. Genet Tenor Saxophone. Everything shown in the pictures are included in this auction. It’s unknown if this item has all of it’s original accessories or parts. Item is Untested. We are not string experts, so we take as many closeup shots for buyers/collectors to see any blemishes, bridge issues, body issues, chips, cracks and neck issues.
This is a H. Genet Tenor Saxophone. It appears to be nice and clean and well cared for. I was unable to locate any information on the maker. I did not see any points of re-solder. I did see some surface scratches, and scuffs. This may potentially have some minuscule dings, but no major dents were noted. Comes in a Hard Case.
OK, so I had that wrong. It’s not that they don’t know about saxophones, it’s that they’re not string experts. Hey, I was close.
In any event, the photos do show a sax that appears to be in decent shape, and is much better looking than many we’ve seen.
If you interested in finding out more about Dörfler & Jörka saxophones, check out the D&J page on the main portion of my site. BTW, I have recently come across some interesting new information about the brand. I am currently researching some early D&J horns, and once the research is more complete, I will be updating the page again.
The auction for this H. Genet tenor made by Dörfler & Jörka, runs until May 27. At the time of writing there were 3 bids on the horn. The high bid was $3.10. No, that wasn’t a typo.
