Selmer SII Alto Sax

This is a dead mint condition Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II alto sax, serial number 431870. This horn is in exquisite, all original condition, with nary a mark on it. It's a great opportunity to pick up a pristine Series II at a significant savings.

 

This Selmer has obviously been treated with kid gloves over its entire life. The original lacquer is 99.9% with no wear to speak of, even on the touch points. There's some fine cosmetic surface scratches if you look closely, and that's it. No dents, dings, or resolders. Even the pearls still feel sharp and don't have that “broken in” kind of feel. The original neck has some lacquer imperfections (see photos) and the only thing I can guess is it came from the factory that way, as there are no signs of previous repair and it is physically perfect.

 

All of the pads are still soft with lots of life left in them, and the sax will get a complete and thorough pro set up before shipping. We'll replace all of the key adjustment corks and felts, and any pads that are starting to age. We'll adjust it out and ship it in perfect playing condition.

 

This alto plays just as you'd want from a Series II. It has a warm sound with a clear focus and strong center, and excellent intonation up and down. It'll make for a great all-around horn, and excels in the classical setting. Ships in a white Selmer Paris Flight case (hard shell).
