Great Players Horn – SML Rec C Tenor
This is an old 1950 vintage SML Rev C model tenor saxophone, serial number 8246. This tenor was relacquered once long ago, but done very well. The stamping and hand engraving wrapping around the bell is still crisp and defined. The price is low enough to make this a great find for the pro player on a budget!
 
This tenor has been around the block, but still have plenty to offer its new owner. It plays with a robust, darker tone, with a clear attack and fluid response. Physically, it shows normal wear and tear, but no major dents or signs of past dent repair. The rolled tone holes are still in great shape for the most part; some have been filed on during the relacquer, but all are still there. The neck was previously pulled down at some point, and brought back up to proper position. This resulted in a crack on one side of the neck, which has been braised and sealed. 
 
The saxophone was being used and professionally maintained by the last owner. It was set-up and professionally serviced a few years ago on its current set of leather pads and nylon resonators. The pads on this horn are a little older but still have a decent amount of life in them. It is currently playing up a storm with smooth fluid key action. This is a fabulous free blowing tenor. 
 
In order to keep the sax at a premium price we are selling it playing in as is condition with out adding any additional work to it. If you've been on the look out for a solid tenor at a bargain price, it is hard to argue with this one.
