HELP, I Want One!

 

This is a mid-2000's series Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II alto sax, serial number 671869. This alto has been played but well cared for, and shows only very light wear from its use. It will get our thorough pro set up before shipping, and arrive to you in exemplary playing shape, ready to go for the long haul.

 

As you can see in the photos, this horn looks fantastic. There's some light scratching on the back side of the bell, from where it may rest against the player during use, but no other wear of note. The original lacquer is overall 90-95% intact, and there are no dents or dings, no previous repairs. The original neck has never been pulled down and there are no resolders.

 

The sax has mostly original pads, with matching metal resonators, which are soft and have lots of life in them. During our pro set up, we'll replace any pads that are starting to show age, as well as all key adjustment corks and felts. We'll clean the sax inside and out, and optimize spring tensions and key heights up and down the sax. When it ships, it'll be play and feel like a brand new horn again.

 

If you are in the market for a Series II, you know what you are getting. This alto plays with a dark, focused core sound, with just a hint of positive resistance to give you something to push against. Altissimo pops effortlessly, and intonation is superb up and down. There's a reason the Series II has become Selmer's all-time biggest seller (even more than the Mark VI!), and it is easy to see why. Ships in its original Selmer Light series case as pictured.
