Killer Player - Superb Vintage SBA
 
This is a great 1951 vintage Selmer Paris Super Balanced Action tenor sax in original silver plate, serial number 45911. If you have been looking for a horn with a special world class sound you will want to pay very close attention to this silver SBA. It is hands down an incredible player and it simply feels great to play this instrument. The SBA has an intense and is immediate in its response to air flow. Dynamic versatility and projection are fantastic on this instrument as well. 
 
This is a real players kind of Super Balanced Action. It was professionally owned and maintained by the previous owner and is in solid condition. The tenor does showcase its original silver finish. The original finish is nicely complemented by some crisp engraving around the bell. Its body is in excellent physical condition regarding the body tube, bell, bow, cap and bell flare. There is just a little history of past shop work on this saxophone. The low C key guard has previously been re-soldered. At some point in the past a tech also removed the small piece of brass near the low C# post . This piece is most often removed by request to improve the overall response and resonance of the instrument. 
 
The instrument also includes the original SBA tenor neck in very good condition. It was very slightly pulled down in the past but was brought back to its true position in the Saxquest shop. The neck is in perfect working order and looks fantastic as well. 
 
George Bunk of the Saxquest shop just completed a very through Saxquest overhaul on this tenor. The overhaul included a complete dissemble and silver polish. It now also features all new premium leather pro Valentino pads with seamless metal resonators. All of the cork and felt work is also brand new. The horn feels fantastic under the fingers and is now in the playing shape of its life. If you are looking for a very special instrument you will not want to miss out on this world class SBA. Please take a look at the fresh photo spread and new video and let us know if you have any questions.
