HELP, I Want One!

This is an absolutely stunning, original silver plated Selmer Paris Super Balanced Action alto sax, serial number 39763. Its looks alone make this horn stand out, but to sweeten the deal, this alto features factory original keywork to high F#. You rarely find high F# on an SBA, especially one so nice.


This alto looks incredible, with 99% original silver plate intact. Remarkably, this alto shows no signs of past trauma or repair. There are no major dents, no resolders, and the original neck has never been pulled down or damaged. There's some very minor finish wear on a couple touch points, and that's it. A past owner wrote something on the backside of the bell in marker I think; it's been cleaned off, but we'll do some minor polishing to see if we can clean it up further.


This alto was repadded recently using black leather pads and seamless, slightly domed nickel plated resonators. The work is top notch and the horn feels great under your fingers. To ensure it meets our standards, this horn will go through our shop before shipping, where we'll do some cleaning, change out some material, and make sure all the pads are perfectly sealing.


This horn oozes warmth and character from every note, from low Bb up into the altissimo. It has an ever-so-subtle spread overall, and takes your air very comfortably. Smooth and effortless, this is a quality pro players horn for the most discerning of collectors. Ships in a Selmer Vanguard wood case, in new condition.
