HELP, I Want One!

Shipping w/ Fresh Saxquest Setup

This is an excellent condition Selmer Paris Reference 54 series alto saxophone, serial number 677179. In the traditional dark amber lacquer, this is a beautiful horn. It has been well cared for and is available for a great price.


This sax is all factory and will get our full professional set up before shipping. We'll reseat all pads, replace all the factory key adjustment corks and felts, and adjust it throughout, putting it in perfect playing shape. Physically, the sax looks fantastic, with 99% original lacquer intact and only superficial wear from normal use. There is one tiny ding in the front of the bottom bow which we will remove during our set up, and one resoldered joint, on the top foot of the low Bb keyguard. The original neck has never been pulled down or damaged.


This is a sweet playing sax, with a definitive dark and inviting tone. It is fairly free blowing and very responsive. It isn't overly focused like a Series II or III, and has a little more punch than you might expect. A great all-around alto for jazz, rock, and even classical. Ships in its original case, which has scuffs and scrapes and one busted zipper, but the other zipper is good and the case is still in good shape.
