Beautiful condition Selmer Paris Super Action 80 alto sax, serial number 322008. This is a first series SA80, in remarkable shape. If you've been on a hunt for a Selmer Paris without breaking the bank, this is a great option, for a horn that has been kept in outstanding condition.

 

Physically, you don't see used horns Selmer horns come along much nicer than this. The original lacquer is 98-99% intact, with only light cosmetic lacquer blemishes here and there. There is no major scratching or lacquer wear, and no dents or dings, no previous repairs of any kind. The sax has obviously been treated with kid gloves and well cared for. The original neck has never been pulled down, and still shows the factory blue paint around the “S” of the octave key.

 

Pads are all in superb, like-new condition, with years of life ahead of them. The sax will get a fresh cleaning and adjustment from our repair shop before shipping. We'll make sure all pads are sealing properly, replace any key adjustment corks and felts not up to our standard, and thoroughly regulate the action, so that it feels like a new horn again.

 

I find these first series Super Action 80's to offer a good balance and versatility, and this example is no exception. It has an overall warmer tone, though not as dark as a Series II, with a good focus and excellent projection. Depending on what mouthpiece you use, you can easily take this horn to any gig from jazz to rock to classical. A great all-around instrument!
