This instrument is part of the Estate of George Galway who passed away aged 79 in October 2020.

He began playing the saxophone professionally while still in his teens, as part of many dance showbands in late-1950s Belfast. 

He moved to Manchester in the 1970s and began a successful career as a music teacher, but still gigged constantly all around the country. 

George didn’t slow down in any way until about 2015, and having lived the world of jazz for nearly seven decades, he had built up an immense repertoire and wealth of knowledge about the saxophone instrument, with its many brands, series, metals, construction and playing techniques, mouthpieces and so on.
He carefully acquired a number of them over the years – both for their monetary investment value, as well as the personal joy he got from playing them. 

Each one is a beautiful example, and you can guarantee that any instrument coming from George’s collection will work well for you and appreciate in value.
