Outstanding Original Condition

This is a gorgeous Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II alto sax, serial number 400373. This instrument has obviously been well cared for over its life and is shipping with a fresh custom pro set up from the Saxquest repair shop.

 

The pictures tell the tale on this beauty. The original lacquer is about 90-95% intact, and the only wear of note is some cosmetic scratching on the back of the horn, mostly on the back side of the bell where it may rest against the player during use. There are absolutely no dents or dings, no resolders, no past trauma or repair of any kind. It is physically flawless top to bottom, including the original neck. The “front” of the horn is as close to mint as you'll find on a used Selmer Paris.

 

This sax is currently in our repair shop in line for our full adjustment. We'll re-seat all pads (replacing any that are aging), and replace all key adjustment corks and felts. We'll even the spring tension and optimize the key heights for the best intonation and response. It will feel like a new horn when we are done!

 

Sonically, this alto gives you exactly what you want from a Series II. It has a definite warmer, darker tone, with a lot of color. A very focused saxophone, it is ideally suited for the concert band setting, but plays with enough power than it can do jazz with the right mouthpiece too. This sax ships in its original case with original Selmer leather case cover.
