This is a premium condition Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II tenor sax in original black lacquer, serial number 671904. This tenor is in exquisite shape and is perfect for the buyer looking for a horn in “like new” condition but can't afford the new price.
This horn looks incredible. There are only a handful of light scratches here and there but really no major wear to speak of. The black lacquer has held up well with no real finish wear. There is one small ding in the bottom bow which we will remove before shipping, and no resolders or previous repairs otherwise. The neck has never been pulled down and is also in perfect shape. We don't find them any nicer than this one!
Mechanically, the horn is in all original pads with the original Selmer metal domed resonators. We will go through and give this sax our full pro set up before it ships, making sure everything is sealing well and the key heights and spring tensions are optimal. We'll also clean it all up, so that is arrives to you clean and ready for its new life!
This is the perfect tenor for the serious classical player. The Series II horns are all ready known for having a dark, focused sound, and this model with the black lacquer just adds warmth and complexity to your tone. You'd be hard pressed to find a sax darker and more centered than this one. It plays with the perfect amount of positive resistance, giving you focus and a strong foundation for the altissimo. A really fine tenor for the discerning musician.
