This is a very nice, original lacquer Buffet-Crampon Super Dynaction alto sax, serial number 18861. This alto was just recently professionally repadded and is a tremendous horn for this price.
This instrument has certainly been well cared for in its life. It shows only light cosmetic wear and no past damages or repairs. The original lacquer shows tremendous coverage, and the sax even has a lot of original factory lacquer overspray on some of the pearls! The bottom bow has never been pushed in or dented, and there are no resolders anywhere. The sax was just repadded using premium firm leather pads and flat metal resonators. We will go through it again before shipping to make sure it is in proper adjustment.
The Super Dynaction is one of the best Buffet saxes around, and is well known for being a versatile all-around saxophone. It has a warm tone and solid core, with better projection than you'd expect. While generally more focused, it has an easy response and takes your air well. This alto can play comfortably in any setting from jazz to classical. It ships in its original case.
