HELP, I Want One!

Here's a great deal on a Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II bari sax, serial number 560482. With the prices on this model approaching $13k, it's never been a better time to get a used one at half the price! This horn has been played and shows signs of use, but will go through our repair shop for a thorough cleaning and adjustment before shipping, and you'll receive it in perfect playing shape.


As you can see in the photos, the original lacquer on this bari is still in excellent condition, well over 98% intact. The surface wear is mostly just cosmetic scratching, and minor lacquer wear on the usual touch points. There's some history of past dent work in the upper crook, bell flare, and on the neck (original to the horn), but nothing too crazy. The sax currently has a fair amount of minor surface dings and dimples in the bottom tube and bell, but we'll remove these in the course of our repair work. Amazingly the horn horn has no resolders.


Pads are all in great shape, fitted with original metal resonators. During our adjustment, we'll replace any that are starting to wear, as well as all of the key adjustment corks and felts. We'll optimize key heights and spring tensions too. This horn will feel and play like a new horn again when we are done with it.


I find these Series II bari's to be very versatile instruments, and this example doesn't disappoint. Very warm and centered sound, with superb intonation, makes it a great classical horn, but it can really rip too and generates a ton of volume. Sweet and lush bottom end down to low A, and its tone stays fat as you climb up into the upper register. Fun horn to play. Ships in a heavy duty hard wood case.
