Selmer Paris – Reference 54 Alto
This is a very pretty Selmer Paris Reference 54 alto saxophone, serial number 713661. It shows off a clean lacquer finish with some standard signs of past play time. The Reference 54 is made in the spirit of the Mark VI, which as release in 1954. These altos are a great option if you are looking for a similar sound and response the original Mark VI but on a modern horn. They feature very comfortable modern key work to high F#. In comparison to the Selmer SII and SIII models the Reference are much more open or “free blowing” in response. This one was manufactured in 2009 and features key work to high F#.
 
This particular sax is in great physical condition. It does show some normal play wear from the last owner but nothing too serious. Its body tube, bow, bow cap and original neck are all in great shape. If you look closely around the bell flare you can see where the sax once had a very small pull down. This has been repaired in the past. 
 
The body of the alto is in fantastic condition. Its body tube, bow, bow cap and original neck are all in nice original condition. If you look closely around the bell flare you can see where the sax once had a very small pull down. This has been repaired in the past. The alto came into the store playing on mostly original pads and resonators. As it is time for the alto to receive some cleaning and service work it is currently in our shop awaiting a professional set up. The work will include a full dissemble and cleaning followed by a precise set up. While the horn is apart we will also replace all of the needed pads and materials. 
 
This saxophone ships out in perfect playing condition with the original Selmer box zip case.
