German Made B and S Tenor – High F#
This is a great horn if you are trying to get into a quality tenor for a low price. German made B and S 100 Series tenor saxophone in gold lacquer, serial number 009154. The B and S has an impressive full sound and can be played with a lot of power. In comparison to a lot of other more modern instruments it is also very free blowing and does not have a lot of resistance.
 
The previous owner of the sax put a decent amount of play time on it. It is currently sitting on a set of  older pads and metal resonators. Some of the pads still have some life in them and some of them could very much stand to be re-placed. Ultimately the sax is not going to be in perfect playing condition until it receives an overhaul or at least a decent amount of set-up and pad work. But, at this time it is playing  down to low Bb as it sits. 
 
Physically the tenor is in good shape as is the neck. There is a number of smallish dings along the bottom bow. The bow cap is still in perfect condition and has never been pushed in. One side of the bell flare also shows some cosmetic wear from a previous repair. This tenor ships out in as is condition with case. If you are in need of a good tenor and are on a budget you are not going to go wrong with a B and S.
