This is a nice Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II tenor sax, serial number 496572. The SII has been a long running go to for some of the worlds finest saxophone players. If you are looking to get into one at a good price and avoid new Selmer pricing this is a great way to go. This one is in particularly nice shape only showing a modest amount of cosmetic play wear. The body is also in outstanding physical condition and has no history of repair. Its body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in perfect original condition. The original neck is also with the horn and it is also in perfect condition.
The SII has a beautiful and easy to control centered sound. Projection and flexibility are also exceptional on this instrument. It takes the air in super fast and has lightly fast response to air flow. The outstanding response and air flow allows for a precise balance and scale from top to bottom. In addition to playing great the SII also feels fantastic under the fingers. This tenor is currently being professionally set-up in the Saxquest shop and ships out in perfect playing condition. The previous owner of the tenor had some cork risers installed on the palm keys. These can be removed if desired, please just let us know your preference.
The current price on a modern SII tenor brand new is close to $7,000. Do not miss out on a chance to pick one up for a fantastic price.
