HELP, I Want One!

Fantastic Condition & a Great Player

This is a pristine condition Selmer Paris Reference 36 tenor saxophone, serial number 617591. This instrument has been professionally played and meticulously well maintained, and is a fantastic bargain for the professional player looking to save a bundle from where these horns sell for when new.


This Reference tenor looks incredible, with 99% original lacquer intact. As far as past repairs goes, there was one tiny ding removed from the side of the neck, and a previous small bell lip bend has been professionally fixed as well. There are no previous resolders, and no dents or repairs to the body of the horn. I see only light surface scratching here and there, and no significant lacquer wear anywhere on this tenor. Pads are still soft and sealing wonderfully, with years of life left in them. This tenor will get our full pro set up before shipping, where we will make sure everything is perfect for its new owner.


I've always been partial to the Reference 36 model, and find it to my favorite of the current production Selmers. This tenor has a real open, resonant response, and is a very lively instrument. It takes your air well, and while it does have a clear, precise focus, it is also extremely free blowing, with a very warm and colorful tone. A great modern tenor that hearkens back to the Selmers of old.
