Does anybody know of some good reputable dealers that sell sackbuts, either originals or reproductions?

Well, for starters, one could begin with the EMC Sackbut Businesses page, http://earlymusichicago.org/businesses_sackbut.htm
 
The listed makers do business on the Web. For others, one might try following the links in the Sackbut section of the EMC Instruments page http://earlymusichicago.org/instruments_brasskeyboardpercussion.htm
 
Sigh. If only I had the funds to purchase a "real" sackbut from one of these makers. For now, I just have to make do with my "sackbut-wannabe"--my silver, small-bore and small-bell, antique "peashooter" trombone.

Doug Yeo had posted elsewhere that he spent some time recently playing the bass sackbut and told how much he enjoyed it for a change of pace.  So, now I have the urge to get a sackbut.  It would be interesting to add to my collection of instruments.

I checked out Maller Brass Instruments using your link and it appears all he sells is trumpets.

Yes, I know what you're saying. I base this on information in the current issue of Early Music America magazine, p. 11, where a half-page ad for Maller Baroque Brass Instruments says "Specializing in handmade trumpets and sackbuts." I assume that since Mr. Maller incurred the expense of that ad, and since it is recent (and possibly more recent than his web site, which is rather terse), the ad is more accurate and authoritative. I could be wrong.

Over here in the UK Michael Rath has started making a set of sackbuts, alto, tenor and bass. Michael makes trombones to the highest standards and I'm sure these would be very good. Could be pricey though!

Sorry - clicked on send before I finished!
 
In addition to Rath in the UK there is also John Webb who makes good modern replicas. Over on mainland Europe there's Egger (Swiss), Bohm und Meinl, Josef Dotzauer, Latsch and Meinl und Lauber (all German I think).
 
I have web URLs for these if you're struggling with your search engines.
 
Haven't found any US makers yet.

Thanks Keith.  Some of those are listed here on this website and I have checked them out.  I'm just kicking the tires (or should I say tyres) right now.

Rainer Egger in Basel makes brilliant reproductions of renaissaance and classical trombones. In diffrent levels of authentity(I hope that's a real word) and price.
 
Check out his age:

I really love playing his MDC renaissance sackbutts, they are expensive, but worth every penny.

I just spoke with David Maller of Maller baroque Brass Instruments yesterday.  I asked him if he had sackbutts, and he said, yes- in fact he had one in the car with him along with a couple of cornettos.  If his web site doesn't give enough information, please call him at (847)509-1901 or e-mail him at mallerbbi@aol.com.

it is true that I make alto, tenor, and bass sackbuts.  I am sorry that I don't currently have some pictures of them on my website.  This will change soon.  My web designer is on his honeymoon at the moment.  I have a tenor in stock, and an alto that is almost completed if anyone is interested in trying either or both of them.
 
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (847) 509-1901, or send me an email at mallerbbi@aol.com.
 
Best,
