Default Sax Lamp

Fine art, it depends upon one’s definition and tastes.

Tim Leefeldt builds Sax lamps. Tim is a great guy and extremely talented. He enjoys audio. And he’s 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. It’s 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 it’s app. three weeks. They are hand built to order.

Nice.
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. 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 don’t 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.

I’m happily married, so there is only one place that I can go for sax.

wind instruments make great lamps.
