This is a classic Leblanc/Beaugnier made Vito tenor sax, serial number 17641. Though the Vito name would later be more known for student level instruments, this is a true French made model and I'd consider it a solid pro level saxophone. What makes this horn stand out is its truly mint condition. I've never seen one so nice!

 

As you can see in the photos, this tenor doesn't look to have been played much, if at all. There are some light surface scratches here and there if you look very closely, but no dents, dings, or previous repairs, and the original lacquer is 99.99% intact with no wear of note. It even had all original pads when it came to us! Everything is perfect from the neck to the bottom bow.

 

Though the pads are currently old, because it hasn't been played extensively, it is still sealing well in its current state. Even so, because the pads are old, we want to do this one right. We're going to replace all pads and material, and give the sax a fresh pro adjustment. Once complete, the horn will be backed by our full one year mechanical warranty. You'd be hard pressed to find a quality vintage tenor in new pads for this price.

 

This tenor is the real deal and a fantastic bargain for lovers of vintage saxophones. It comes complete with original factory paperwork and original accessories, including original swabs, cork grease, etc. Even the original case is in near flawless shape! For people like us who love the classics, you won't find a nicer example of a French Vito tenor sax.
