I’ve assembled a collection of vintage ads that span decades of saxophonic history. With this small sampling I’ve tried to cover some of the classic brands and models that we vintage sax fanatics are all familiar with.
As I happen to come across them, I have also started to collect some ads for some of the lesser-known or less popular brands of horns. I think it is interesting to see how some of these manufacturers tried to compete with the big names of the day.
Even if you’re not a fan of vintage saxophones, vintage ads are still a fascinating snapshot back into a time when life was simpler.
