HELP, I Want One!

Very nice original Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II tenor sax in gold lacquer, serial number 627159. The serial number dates this sax to the early 2000's, and it has been well cared for over the last 20 years. Pads are all good, and with a fresh cleaning and adjustment from our shop, it will ship to you ready to go for the long haul.

 

As you can see in the photos, this horn looks fantastic. There's only light lacquer wear from normal use, and just a couple tiny pings if you look very closely, all purely cosmetic. The horn has obviously never been abused, with no signs of past trauma to the body. Unfortunately the neck did take a hit at some point and shows dent work on one side (last photo), but the neck has never been pulled down.

 

Pads are all in great shape with original (or original style) Selmer metal domed resonators. A few in the upper stack are worn and will be replaced in our shop before shipping. We'll completely disassemble the sax, do a thorough cleaning inside and out, and replace all key adjustment material as well. During our set up, we'll bring the sax back to factory specs so that it feels like a new horn again when you get it.

 

This tenor plays just as you want and expect from a top shelf Series II. Very warm, dark sound, with an even response top to bottom and solid intonation. The altissimo pops effortlessly thanks to a strong focus and solid core. The is the quintessential classical tenor, but we've all seen plenty of Series II's in a rock band too, so don't let it get tied down to one genre. It will do anything you want it to do.
