HELP, I Want One!

This is a pristine, mint condition Selmer Paris “Millennium Edition” Series III alto sax, serial number 611941. Less than 500 of these exquisite horns were made to commemorate the year 2000. It features a finish never seen before or since by Selmer Paris, and this example, # 294 in the limited run, is as perfect as you will find.

 

The horn looks incredible. It has a frosty matte silver plated body, with gold matte finish keys. Selmer paid a lot of attention to even the smallest detail to make this sax truly stand out, such as the white rollers and white paint around the “S” of the octave key. The neck itself is sterling silver with gold lacquered hardware. Physically, this sax is near-flawless, with just a couple little marks here and there if you look very close. Absolutely no finish wear to speak of. This sax looks to have been played a handful of times and otherwise stored away for the last 20 years. The original case does show some shelf wear, including a couple tiny holes in the material, as seen in the photos.

 

All of the pads and material are original, and in order to keep this sax as factory as possible, we'll do just a minimal adjustment to make sure it is properly sealing. Sonically, this Series III plays with a definitive warm, darker sound, with a sweet and lush tone that envelops the listener. It is the total package for players and collectors alike, and one of the rarest “modern” altos you'll find.
