This is a very nice condition, original lacquer Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II soprano sax, serial number 442334. This horn has been well cared for and shows no history of past damage or repair. It is currently in our repair shop in line for a complete repad, and will ship to its new owner in perfect playing shape.

 

This soprano really shows nothing more than cosmetic lacquer wear. There's some acid bleed here and there, which are brownish-reddish spots that happen as a result of being improperly degreased during manufacturing. All is cosmetic and will not affect play in any way. There are no dents or dings, no previous repairs, including no resolders. The tube is straight and the bell flare is perfect. This is a serious top level soprano in fantastic overall condition.

 

This horn came to us on old pads, most likely factory original, and as such it is currently in line for a fresh repad. It will get a full disassembly and cleaning, all new pads with seamless, slightly domed resonators, and new material throughout. We'll regulate the stacks and optimize spring tensions for a perfect feel and response. All work is included in the price.

 

Currently playing on older pads, this soprano still has a clear and concise attack, with a darker overall voice and offering the player excellent control. I see why it is easy to love these horns for classical and ensemble playing, but paired with the right mouthpiece, it can do jazz just as comfortably. It's a solid pro soprano, at a hard-to-find price for a Selmer Paris. Comes in its original hard case.
