Vintage Buffet S1 Alto Original Gold Lacquer, Serial Number 35388
Rich Focused Sound
This is a beautiful Buffet S1 in original gold lacquer, serial number 35388. Talk about a real beauty! The S1 is in tremendous physical condition and looks to have been played very lightly by the previous owner. Its body is in perfect condition and has no history of re-solders or dent work. The original neck is in great shape and has never been pulled down.
The construction of the S1 features a front F, high F# and pearl alt F# key. It also has a unique and highly ergonomic layout in the left hand table keys, see picture 7.
The S1 plays with a deeply focused and dark core sound. It is very quick on the response and has a crystal clear pronunciation to each note played. The focused sound and precise control on these altos makes them a favorite with the classical saxophone crowd. This particular S1 is currently in the Saxquest shop being professionally set-up and comes in perfect playing condition with the original Buffet wood hard case.
