HELP, I Want One!

Freshly Cleaned & Adjusted in the Saxquest Repair Shop

This is a beautiful condition, early series Selmer Super Action 80 Series II tenor sax, serial number 389429. This tenor is in fantastic shape, and ships with a fresh set up and adjustment from the Saxquest repair shop.

 

The original lacquer on this Selmer Paris looks great, with the only wear of note being some scratching on the back side of the bell and body, where it may rest against the player during play. There's some previous dent work in the bottom bow, but no other past repairs. The bell-to-body brace and bell flare are perfect. The neck is original, and while it did previously have a slight pull-down, it has been corrected and has the proper curve on it now. Pads are all in excellent shape, fitted with original metal resonators, and have lots of life left in them. During our set up, we replaced a couple pads starting to age, as well as all of the key adjustment material.

 

This tenor plays with a sweet, pure, and focused sound. Definitely on the darker side of the sound spectrum, it is easy to see why these make for great instruments for the quartet or classical setting. That being said, when paired with the right mouthpiece, you can take this tenor to any gig, because it plays with a lot of power and a great warmth and color. Ships in a white Selmer contoured Flight Series case.
