This is a beautiful original lacquer Buffet Paris Super Dynaction tenor saxophone, serial number 12356. This tenor looks exquisite and honestly looks to have spent most of its life tucked away in its case. Even the original case looks great!

 

The original lacquer on these vintage Buffet horns can be pretty fragile, and while there are a couple spots where the lacquer has flaked away (see the bell around the B/Bb tone holes), overall it is in great shape with over 90% coverage. Amazingly, I see no dents or signs of previous repair, including no resoldered joints. The sax really is as nice as they come. The original neck is also in great shape.

 

We receive this tenor on mostly original pads, with just a handful replaced to get it to seal. Since it has a mismatch of pads, including many old original pads, we've decided to do a complete restoration on this horn to make it perfect for its next owner. We'll replace all pads and material, and adjust key heights and spring tensions for optimal feel.

 

The Buffet Paris instruments don't get the credit they deserve, but they are a solid alternative to Selmer, especially for the classical crowd, or if you like that sweet, darker jazz tone. This instrument plays with a lush, warm sound, very inviting and easy on the years, with a lot of color and character in its tone. A very expressive instrument. Intonation is solid and with the pro pad job, it will bring years of enjoyment.
