This is a vintage Buffet Crampon Paris Super Dynaction series alto sax, serial number 17664. Long known for their premier, top-of-the-line clarinets, Buffet has made some great saxophones over the years, and this Super Dynaction is a great buy for the price.

 

This alto is in decent original lacquer. It shows typical wear for a horn that has been played around town. There are a couple tiny dings and minor resolders, but overall it is in very good physical condition. It was repadded 4 years ago using white roo pads, and the pads have held up well. The keywork is starting to feel a bit “broken in” and the sax could maybe use a fresh set up, but it is playing well as it sits.

 

Buffet has typically been associated with classical horns, but this model plays a little more open. It retains a warm, colorful “French” kind of sound, and takes your air efficiently with a quick, lively response. This alto will feel right at home in both the concert band and jazz band settings.
