This is a near MINT condition Selmer Paris Series III tenor sax, serial number 567822. This tenor looks incredible, with 99.9% original lacquer intact. It shows only minor surface scratching from honest playing, and no dents, dings, or damages of any kind. A great deal for players wanting a Series III at well below the new price!
The tenor is in amazing condition and has no wear of note. The neck has never been pulled down, and the bottom bow and bell flare have never taken a hit. There are no re-solders. Pads are all in pristine shape too, fitted with metal domed resonators. The sax was recently fully serviced professionally and is playing like a real dream. We will also go through it in the shop once more before it ships.
This tenor plays with a very warm, focused core sound. The Series III has long been the choice for classical saxophonists, and it does excel for that style, but with the right mouthpiece you can take this horn to any gig. It has a very fast response and plenty of power and projection. A new SIII tenor is quite pricey these days, don't miss out on a chance to grab one while you can at extreme savings.
