Vintage Radio Improved Alto Sax 1934
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Radio Improved “Super” alto saxophone, serial number 19723. The Radio Improved models came at the end of the Super run. Their key works varies from the earlier models just a little bit and they are stamped Radio Improved on the bell just above the Selmer Paris stamp. The key work is nice and compact on the alto allowing for easy fluid movement. These saxophones show case an awesome free blowing and rich sonic character. 
 
This one in particular is in good physical condition but will need a complete overhaul before it is going to be ready for playing. The body tube, bell and original neck are all in very good condition. Like the majority of the older Selmers this saxophone has been re-lacquered in the past. I have looked over this saxophone very closely and can only find one smaller re-solder on the alt F# key guard. The original neck is with the saxophone as well and shows no signs of serious past repair. 
 
In order to keep the final price down we are currently offering it in as is condition. If you have a favorite local tech or are looking for your own project the Super is a nice choice. If you would like Saxquest to do an overhaul on this instrument you can select the add on option. The Saxquest overhaul would include all new pads, resonators, corks, felts and a precise key regulation.
