This is a late 80's or early 90's vintage Selmer USA tenor sax, serial number 0830297. This tenor is a great “step up” or basic pro model for the advancing player, or also for an adult beginner looking to get something better than a student model sax.
Physically, the sax shows a fair amount of lacquer wear, but mostly just scratching and wear from honest use. It has never been abused. There was once a past ding in the bell flare which has been removed, and a couple little pings in the body tube. No serious past dents or trauma. It does come with its original neck still as well.
Pads are all in great shape with lots of of life left in them. We are going to go through this tenor top to bottom before it ships, cleaning it and replacing any pads that are starting to age, as well as all of the key adjustment corks and felts. It will ship in perfect playing shape, backed with our full year mechanical warranty.
Sonically, this tenor plays with a sweet sound and good response. It takes your air well and has a solid warm core than you can build upon. It features modern keywork to high F# too. Ships in its original Selmer Vanguard wood case.
