HELP, I Want One!

Series I Tenor
This is a very sweet Selmer Paris Super Action 80 first series tenor saxophone in gold lacquer, serial number 320005. The serial number of this saxophone places its manufacture date in 1981. It shows some normal cosmetic character for its vintage but is other wise in beautiful condition with no history of serious repair. The first series Super Action 80 is ideal for the modern player who needs a professional horn for a wide range of musical settings. This particular sax plays with a warm flexible core sound. It is slightly more free blowing then the current Selmer SIII model but is much more balanced and controlled compared to vintage Selmer tenors form the 1950's. The great control and flexibility of the Super Action 80 makes it a go to choice for the modern pro player. 
 
The body of the sax is in excellent physical condition showing off original lacquer and crisp engraving. Cosmetically the sax does show normal play wear but has no history of ever receiving any major repair. No major dent work and no past re-solders. The previous owner kept it serviced on its original set of pads. Because the set of pads are now about 40 years old the horn is going to be due to be completely re-padded in the near future. But because it is still playing decently as it sits we are currently offering it playing on its current set of pads at a lower price. 
 
This saxophone ships out playing in as is condition on its original pads. It does include a Protec Propac case. If you have any questions about this saxophone please send us in a product question or feel free to contact us directly at zac@saxquest.com
