Vintage Original Silver Plate Selmer Paris New Large Bore – Super Alto, Serial #13689
Selmer Super Alto - Gold Wash Bell Flare
This is a vintage Selmer Paris New Large Bore – Super alto sax in satin silver, serial number 13689. The body of the sax is in beautiful condition showing off the burnished silver finish around the bell deco as well as the keys. Its bell flare also show cases a lovely gold wash. The body of the alto is about as nice as it gets with no history of major repair and no re-solders. Its bell, body tube, bow and bow cap are all in terrific shape. Its neck is also in excellent original condition and has never been pulled down.
These early vintage Supers are fantastic free blowing players and tend to be warmer then the Balanced Action models that were made later. This one is currently playing down to a low Bb on older pads. If you are looking to do serious playing on the sax it will ultimately need to be re-padded. It is always a nice treat to find a silver Super in such nice condition. Don't miss out on this fantastic vintage Selmer.
Alto does ship in original vintage Selmer case.
