Buffet S1 Tenor
This a vintage Buffet Crampon S1 tenor saxophone in original lacquer finish, serial number 24175. The S1 is considered to be one of the top professional models made by Buffet. It features key work which is both unique and comfortable. The left hand table keys are made with an additional pivot point for the low Bb key making movement very fluid when using the bell keys. In the right hand the low Eb/C keys features a roller-less spatula system. This saxophone also has key work to high F#.
The sax is in nice physical condition with a typical amount of cosmetic character for a well played professional instrument. It does show off a clean original lacquer finish with original pearl touches and original gold plated springs. Going over the horn very carefully it does not have any history of major past body repair. There have been no re-solders. All of the key work and guards are present and in good condition. The original neck is with the saxophone. It was previously pulled down but will be corrected while it is in our shop.
The S1 came into our shop on mostly original pads. As it has been some time since it has seen any service attention it is currently awaiting a mechanical overhaul in our shop. The overhaul will included a dissemble, deep cleaning, key fitting and a thorough set-up. Once complete the horn will be in perfect playing condition with all new Valentino pro leather pads, metal resonators as well as new corks and felts. All done up these horns play with an exceptionally balanced sound and a warm voice with lots of color. 
This tenor ships in perfect playing condition with a fresh overhaul and a wood box case.
