Couf Superba I Tenor – Rolled Tone Holes
This is a great vintage Couf Superba I tenor sax in original gold lacquer finish, serial number 83217. If you are a musician who plays in a multitude of musical settings and want a flexible horn with a lot of power and projection these Coufs are fantastic. This one has seen some play time in the past but is in great physical condition. The body tube, bell, bell flare, bow and bow cap are all in great shape showing no history of any major damages or dent work. There is one re-solder located on the alternate F# key guard. We received the saxophone with two necks. One has a matching serial number and a second gold lacquer neck. The one with the serial number has a little bit warmer and robust sound while the other is a little brighter. Both necks are in good shape and have never been pulled down.
 
The Superba I does feature rolled tone holes, high F# and outward rounded key pearls on front F and alternate F#. This saxophone has been played on and regularly maintained by the previous owner. Currently it has a few different kind of leather pads and black roo pads. We just finished going through this sax in our repair shop. The set-up included replacing any needed pads as well as needed key materials. We did a fine regulation on the sax, and it ships out in perfect playing condition.
 
This is a serious players instrument. It is no thte prettiest but if you are in need of a good sax and do not mind some preexisting cosmetic character this Couf is perfect. Instrument ships with both necks and original Couf box hard case.
