HELP, I Want One!

Beautiful All Original Condition

This is a gorgeous, mid-2000's vintage Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II alto sax, serial number 651496. This horn has been meticulously well cared for and is a great find for the advancing or pro player wanting a Series II without paying the high “new” prices for what these go for.

 

The best word to describe this alto is stunning. The original lacquer is 98-99% intact, with only light wear on a few touch points (side keys, palm keys) and minor scuffing on the back of the bell where it may rest against the player during play. There are absolutely no dents or dings, and no resolders, anywhere. The original neck has never been damaged. It is gorgeous top to bottom. The original pads (Selmer factory metal resonators) still look new, and have lots of life in them. Even so, this alto will get a fresh cleaning and adjustment from our repair shop before shipping, so you know it will come ready to play.

 

This alto plays exactly how you want a Series II to play. It has a definite darker sound, and offers the player the perfect amount of positive resistance to give you something to push against. As such, it remains focused from low Bb up into the altissimo, and always feels controlled and centered. A fantastic horn for concert band or small chamber/quartet play, but can do jazz just as well with the right set up.
