Shipping with Full Saxquest Overhaul

This is a mid-vintage Selmer Paris Super Balanced Action alto sax in beautiful original silver plate, serial number 41412. This alto dates back to 1949, but you'd never know it by looking at it. This horns looks incredible and is shipping with a fresh overhaul from the Saxquest repair shop.

 

The photos almost don't do this horn justice. It looks fantastic in person, with greater than 98% original silver plate intact. It has just a couple little wear spots here and there, but has obviously spent most of its life inside its case. There are 2 previous repairs, both resolders: one on the alternate F# keyguard, and the other on the octave key saddle on the neck (seen in the photos). There are NO dents and no signs of any past dent repair. All looks great!

 

This alto arrived to us in old pads, so it is currently in our repair shop in line for a complete overhaul. We'll replace all of the pads and material, using oversized seamless, slightly domed metal resonators. Though the sax is leaking a bit now, it all ready displays the warmth and color you can only find on a vintage SBA, and the silver seems to add depth to an already gorgeous tone. It will be that much better once our work is complete!
