ROXY Tenor Saxophone

by Yumi

Have you ever seen a Tenor Saxophone with 'ROXY' engraved inside the bell? I would like to find out who actually is the manufacturer of this Tenor Saxophone being sold second hand for $612. I just want to make sure I don't make a bad purchase.
Thanks

Make sure you have spotted a quality sax before buying it. A trusted name would be more recommended.

I saw a Roxy alto

The alto I saw had nice engraving and appeared to be of good quality. It was manufactured in Germany.

Origins of Roxy
by: MusicManiac

Check out saxontheweb.com forums or www.worldwidesax.com on the left side about 1/3 the way down. According to the information posted there, Roxy is a Keilwerth stencil called a "tam" made in Germany by Keilwerth copiers, such as Amati, Dörfler & Jörka (1949 to 1968, then purchased by Keilwerth) and B&S" with a Keilwerth body and slightly altered key work from D&J & is considered very rare & exceptional if it has a circle on hte back near the serial number saying "The best in the world!"
Other It was imported into the USA by Don Wunn music in Portland, Oregon in the 50's or 60's? It's omparable to a Bundy Special.
