HELP, I Want One!

A Beautiful Looker & Player!

This is a beautiful condition, late '90's era Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II alto sax in original black lacquer, serial number 577590. The black lacquer on this alto is in exquisite shape and is a stunning sight to see. The sax has been well maintained and is a sweet player.

 

I've always found black lacquered horns to play with an especially rich and focused sound, and this particular alto is no slouch. It plays with just the right amount of positive resistance to give you something to push against. While its tone is definitely warm and centered, it is still a lively alto, and you can push it to generate a lot of volume.

 

Physically, the sax is in solid shape. The black lacquer finish shows minimal wear for its age. The sax come to us with one foot of the low B/Bb keyguard popped off, which we will resolder shortly. This will remove a bit of lacquer, but we'll do it well to keep it fresh and clean looking. Otherwise, we are just going to clean the horn and do our pro set up on it, replacing any aging pads and all of the material. We'll adjust it out and make sure everything is sealing perfectly before it ships.

 

If you are looking for a fantastic player, but also a horn that looks great and will turn heads, this is a fantastic option. It looks incredible and can play sweetly or aggressively, really any style you want to do.
