Sax Lamp

Fine art, it depends upon oneís definition and tastes.

Tim Leefeldt builds Sax lamps. Tim is a great guy and extremely talented. He enjoys audio. And heís quite a designer.

He builds lamps using new or used real saxophones. This one pictured is an Alto Sax that has a regular LED light bulb and a LED nightlight in it. The nightlight puts off a blue glow. It has a wood tambourine & steel base. Itís extremely nice for a Great Room.

You can order one similar to this style from Railroadware.com - Sax Lamp

Delivery times may vary depending upon the options you select, but for one like ours itís app. three weeks. They are hand built to order.

Nice. :thumbsup:
Am surprised he can find horns that make the lamp economical to build. Have a clarinet on the wall behind my rig. Artist told me the last time I saw him that it is not often he can make horns into art due to the cost.
Did check out new sax prices around Thxgvg and they started around $4500.

He normally uses a used sax. I’m not sure how he sources them. But he cleans them up nicely. If I pay $4500 for a new Sax I will be taking lessons to learn how to play it. :banana: No lamp worth that much …

Yes. I understood that he does and was surprised when I looked on "the 'bay" and saw how cheap some of them are. Makes more sense then I thought. Of course, the one I want (King Zephyr tenor of my youth) is less cheap.

Oh wow, that is a nice Sax. I donít know what he has access to. But Tim may have a good price on one or know where he can get one. I know he just purchased another lightly used sax last night.
