Rare Original Silver Plate in EXCELLENT Condition

This is a rare, original silver plated Selmer Paris Balanced Action alto sax, serial number 29537. You almost never see this model in its original finish, most having been relacquered long ago, but not only is this one original, but it looks incredible, and shows no history of past repair.

 

Physically, you just don't see vintage Balanced Actions this nice. The silver plating is a solid 99% intact, with only minor finish wear on a couple keyguards. There is some minor surface scratching on the back of the bell and body tube, but no signs of any past dents or repair, including no resoldered joints. The original neck has never been pulled down or damaged. This is the complete package for collectors and players alike.

 

Along with its good looks, this is a fine playing sax too. It has the warmth and color you would expect from a vintage Selmer, and has a more open, spread sound than some of the later models. A fairly free blowing sax, it takes your air very quickly. Padded with metal domed resonators, it is a very lively saxophone. This sax will go through our repair shop before shipping, where we will give it our pro set up and replace any material not up to our standards. Ships in a Protec contoured case.
