HELP, I Want One!

Freshly Adjusted by Saxquest and Ready to Go

Pristine condition Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II alto sax, serial number 585133. For a used horn, they don't come any nicer than this. This alto has been lovingly well cared for in its life, and has just been freshly serviced in the Saxquest repair shop. It comes in perfect playing condition and ready to bring enjoyment for years to come.

 

As you can see in the photos, trying to find flaws in this horn is like splitting hairs. There are some very minor cosmetic surface scratches here and there, but you've got to hunt them out. The original lacquer is 99.9% with no wear of note, even on the touch points. It goes without saying, but no dents, dings, resolders, or previous repairs. All pads are in like-new condition with original metal resonators, and the sax was just set up in our repair shop, where we replaced all key material and precisely adjusted keywork. Even the original Selmer Vanguard case and leather case cover look great!

 

This alto plays just how you want a Series II to play. It has a rich, dark, focused sound, and offers the player just the right amount of positive resistance to give you something to push against while you play. This push-back doesn't make the sax feel stuffy or tight, it still projects well, and it does give a strong foundation to make altissimo pop. With a classical set up, this alto's voice is as sweet and pure as you will find. A dynamic horn for the most discerning of professional players.
