HELP, I Want One!

This is a fully restored Selmer Paris Series III Tenor Sax, serial number 585733. This tenor has just been completed in our repair shop with all new pads and has been precisely regulated for optimal intonation and response. It is a fantastic horn for the most discerning professional saxophonists.

 

This tenor came to us needing some work. The bell had taken a sizable hit which had pushed the bell in towards the body tube. Saxquest's Chris Funck completely disassembled the sax and took those dents out. Now that the work has been done, the only evidence of the work is lost lacquer on the bell flare and around the bell-to-body brace on the body tube side (good photos of the repair work on the bell flare in pictures 25 and 26). There are now no dents or dings anywhere. The bottom bow was unaffected and is in perfect shape. Freshly repadded with original style resonators, it feels and plays like a new horn again.

 

This is a real sweet playing tenor, with a warm, lush sound and a tight, controlled focus. It takes your air very efficiently and plays with an easy, fluid response. Impeccable intonation from top to bottom. If you've been wanting a modern Selmer but can't swing the “new” price, this is the next best thing.
