HELP, I Want One!

B&S Soprano
This is a nice playing B&S soprano saxophone, Serial #01858. This saxophone features a one piece body and neck design with a triple neck strap ring and straight tone holes. 
This instrument is currently playing decently through a lot of leaks on some older pads. It has a strong medium warm sound and a lot of color. Projection and clarity is excellent on this instrument. The soprano came into our shop playing on an older set of mix matched pads. If you are going to be doing a lot of serious playing on this instrument it is going to ultimately need an overhaul before it is in perfect playing condition. But if you are just looking for a budget player you might be able to get by a little longer as it sits or with more minimal attention in the shop. 
The body of the soprano is in decent physical condition. It does show some general finish wear from past use. There is some history of past solder and dent repair on this saxophone. The bell flare also shows some cosmetic wear from past placement on a peg stand.  While it is not the pretties horn in the shop right now this would be a great instrument for someone looking to get into a good soprano for not a lot of money.
